  1. This is so neat, making your own dog treats, and so simple with three ingredients. Looking at it, it almost reminds me of biscotti. Have you tried this yourself?

    1. Thanks so much, Alexandra! 🙂 Yes, I’ve tried them, they are delicious! They taste different than biscotti – they taste like hazelnut shortbread cookies without sugar.

  2. Oh, so cute! But, I think that I would end up eating them instead of my dog… if I had a dog.

    Thanks so much for sharing your sweet, healthy doggy biscuits with us today at Fiesta Friday.

  3. I believe our dogs need treats as much as we love them. It is just a part of treating them like part of the family. The only thing is like my children I like to offer our dogs good treats Thanks for offering this recipe that we can make up and share with our four legged family members
