The recipe for pumpkin and flaxseed biscuits for your dog


  • 450g pumpkin purée

  • 45g oats

  • 2 tbsp flax seeds or flax seed powder

  • 1 tablespoon of raw honey

  • ½ tbsp flaxseed oil/fish oil/coconut oil

  • 360g whole wheat flour/gluten-free rice flour or any flour alternative


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. Line a baking sheet.

  2. Add rolled oats, flax seeds and flour to a bowl and mix.

  3. Add the puree, honey and oil of your choice to the dry ingredients and mix well. If it doesn’t stick, you can add a little water, a tablespoon at a time, until you get a thick paste that holds without being too sticky.

  4. Use your hands to knead the dough several times to make sure all the ingredients are incorporated.

  5. Place the dough on a lightly floured work surface and roll out to 1/2 cm thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut out cookies or create your own shapes. Place them on the baking sheet lined with baking paper.

  6. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the cookies are golden and hard.

  7. Let cool completely and store in an airtight container
