I baked bone-shaped hazelnut dog treats for my dog’s thirteenth birthday on Valentine’s Day. If you follow me on instagram you’ve probably seen pictures of my water-crazy dog. She loves these hazelnut dog treats!
- 250g (2 cups) flour
- 100g (1/2 cup) hazelnuts
- 100g (1/2 cup) butter
Preheat the oven to 180°C/ 350°F and line a baking sheet with baking paper.
Pulse the hazelnuts in a food processor until finely ground. Then knead all ingredients together.
Form the dough into two logs. Fold them in half: now you have two heart-shaped logs. Press the heart-shaped logs together and voila: a bone-shaped log! 😀
Cut the bone-shaped dog treats into 1/2cm (1/4″) slices with a sharp knife.
Bake the bones for 10 to 15 minutes.

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?
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.
Our 14 yr old dog is Gluten Free!!! These look wonderful as people biscuits!
Thanks for stopping by, Susan!
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.
Thanks so much, Julianna!

Now that’s a lucky dog!! Thanks for sharing at the What’s for Dinner party! Hope you have a great week.
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
Thanks so much, Angie!
Visiting from Inspire Me Monday. I’m passing this on to my daughter. She has a dog and I think she’s like to try this for him. It’s nice meeting you. Have a good day! 😉
