Spoil your pup with these 31 dog treat recipes.  These recipes are simple to make, and your dog will love them more than store bought treats.

When Nacho went grain free a while ago, I was shocked at the price of food and treats.  He really loves his sweet potato and salmon dog food, but he doesn't care much for the grain free dog treats.

I've always made him different dog treat recipes off and on since he was a puppy.  He really prefers homemade to what I get at the store.

How to make homemade dog treats with 31 easy recipes. These are the best recipes with peanut butter, pumpkin, sweet potato, banana, oatmeal, applesauce, carrot, blueberry, and coconut oil as ingredients. These gourmet healthy treats are simple to make at home. Some are grain free. Includes no bake frozen treats with no flour and yogurt. Two DIY cupcake treat recipes for a birthday party. The best home made dog treats for both chewy and soft. Some dehydrated recipes with chicken meat and cheese. #dogtreat #dog #pets

He's not too crazy about store bought grain free treats, and my other dog won't even eat the ones I've bought.

So now I make my own dog treat recipes.  The boys love them.  They run to the kitchen in hopes of getting a good boy snack as we call them.

Not all of these dog treat recipes are grain free.  I've found that I can use coconut flour for most recipes to make them grain free.

Actually, it's worked in every recipe that I've tried and the dogs love them.  But I haven't tried every recipe, so be prepared to experiment a little bit.

In regular baking, coconut oil doesn't work as a 1:1 substitution.  You need to add an egg more more moisture and structure.

However, in dog treats, it tends to work pretty well.  You can also melt a tablespoon of coconut oil and add that to help the dough stick together.

Nacho also has skin problems due to allergies, so I usually add a tablespoon of chia seeds or flax seeds to my homemade dog treat recipes.
