A yummy “Doggie Biscuit Recipe” that’s healthy and filled with high-quality ingredients. As a bonus, it’s super easy to make and it’s ultra-nutritious for your furry friends. Oats (especially certified gluten-free varieties) are highly nutritious for dogs. They not only contain fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, but they’re also a great source of plant-based protein.
The protein and fat found in oats are especially beneficial to your dog’s health. They’re easy to digest and provide them with a good balance of amino acids. Not only that, but the oats in this doggie biscuit recipe also taste great. Add in nutrient-dense vegetables and the beneficial fats from the olive oil, and you end up with great flavor and balanced nutrition. These treats are as tasty as they are nutritious!
