SuperG Beef trachea stuffed with ground beef heart/green tripe/bonemeal/liver...freeze them and give to them frozen....lasts about 10-15 minutes but they are in treat paradise.

All ingredients raw of course.

Wild Wolf I love love love using coconut flour! The only downside is the amount of eggs you have to use, but the stuff is really tasty and healthy - easy to digest and easy on the digestive system. I wrote one recipe for my blog that had three ingredients, it is the one I repeat the most.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup of coconut flour
  • 1 cup of all natural peanut butter
  • 4 eggs
DIRECTIONS
  1. Combine coconut flour, peanut butter and eggs in a mixing bowl.
  2. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Shape into 1-inch balls or roll out and cut shapes with a cookie cutter.
  4. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for 17-20 minutes
I make it with whole wheat flour when I don't have coconut flour on hand, and change it to 2 cups of whole wheat flour instead of 1 coconut f. Hunter loves both, but I swear he drools a little more for the coconut flour version.

Stosh I make Beef Crunchies for Stosh- I found the recipe here somewhere. It's really easy- you simply cut beef stew meat into smaller bits, place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. It's ok if they're touching. Bake them in a 350 degree oven, turning over once. When they start to look roasted, turn the oven down to 225 and continue baking until the liquid has baked out (I pour that off about half way through and save it to pour over kibble). Leave them out overnight to dry further and store in zip lock bags in fridge. If you want a softer treat don't bake as long. I also make chicken jerky this way.

What KaiserandStella said. If you can't find any of the above, you CAN use whole wheat flour as long as your dog isn't allergic and you're willing to use a grain-inclusive flour (I've done it before - no harm done!).

I don't have a list offhand of things you shouldn't add, but I do have a list good things to add (both safe AND good for them!) - also from Angel's site:

Healthy Fruit
Healthy Vegetables

Brown Rice Flour, white rice flour, almond flour, pea flour (commonly used in commercial dog treats), potato flour, and chickpea flour.

Whole Almonds are listed as only in moderation. I think it would be okay to use almond flour in treats though. They are not toxic like Walnuts and macadamia nuts.

Grapes/Raisins, apple seeds, cherry pits, peach pits, plum pits, mango seeds, avocado seeds, and onions are very toxic. There are long lists out there with toxic and mildly irritating food to dogs. Some are up for debate and others not clear because of conflicting info.

Treats

I too, bought a dehydrator from Amazon, and make my own chicken planks, it is very economical, and the dogs are CRAZY about them. I also use some scissors to cut them up when dry to feed the Dachshunds, with the GSD's getting a whole plank. I buy the chicken frozen at the local grocery store and just pop them in the dehydrator, works awesome! Bob

I like to make my dogs frozen treats like that too. Some sweeter ones I make with peanut butter (or applesauce), yogurt, raw honey, coconut oil, and banana (or blueberries/mango) Savory ones with different types of meat and/or organs (mostly liver), yogurt, home-made chicken broth, sweet potato, carrots, and spinach.
