At Christmas I love getting my bake on in the kitchen. For the humans, I’ve already made a delicious batch of mince pies and gooey brownies. But as we’re spoiling ourselves with Christmas treats, I just can’t resist baking Loki a few of her own.
These fruit and nut Christmas dog biscuits are super easy to make and look utterly delicious. There were certainly no complaints from my Loki! And it’s such a lovely way to include your pooch in the festivities and give them something made from the heart.
This recipe will make a batch of around 20 dog biscuits depending on the size of your cookie cutter.

- 160g of wholemeal flour
- 50g of Porridge oats
- 30g of grated apple
- 125g of smooth, natural peanut butter (xylitol free – this is an artificial sweetener found in some peanut butter that is highly toxic to dogs.)
- 20g of grated carrot
- 1/2 tsp of baking powder
- One small egg
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees. Add the wholemeal flour, porridge oats and baking powder to a bowl and mix. In another bowl, mix together the grated apple, carrot, peanut butter and egg.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and combine to form a dough. If the dough feels a little dry, add a splash of water.
Grab your rolling pin and roll out your dough to around a 1cm thickness.
Next, grab your cookie cutter and cut as many shapes as possible. Use Christmas themed cutters for a festive feel, or your favourite doggy cutter. Feel free to re-roll the dough and cut until there’s nothing left.
Line a baking tray with baking paper and space out your biscuit shapes.
Pop the tray in your oven for around 10 minutes or until golden brown. Leave to cool and serve to your lucky pup!
