Carrot Dog Biscuits

If your dog loves carrots as much as mine, he will go crazy for these crispy Carrot Dog Biscuits! They are the perfect treat for your furry friend. And the best part: you’ll only need 5 ingredients to make them!

Carrot Dog Biscuits

When I got Miso, I’ve let him try different veggies and fruits (after googling if they are safe for dogs, of course!) to find out what he likes. He went crazy over carrots. That was a pleasant surprise because carrots are one of the staple veggies for me. I like them, he likes them, we all like carrots. Perfect!

So after the peanut butter dog treats, I wanted to make cookies that are a bit crispier. That’s when these Carrot Dog Biscuits happened. They have the perfect size to put them into his kong bone toy.

You’ll only need 5 ingredients for these vegan Carrot Dog Biscuits: 

  • whole wheat flour
  • oat flour
  • all-purpose flour
  • cinnamon powder
  • carrot purée (homemade by blending carrots with water)

You can replace one flour with another if you don’t have all of these at home.

Meet Miso

In February 2018, I finally adopted a dog (after years of wanting to have one)! I named him Miso and he was five months old when I got him. He’s the cutest dog ever.

He LOVES food and sleeps and he rather stays in than to go outside – I couldn’t have found a better friend! :D His favorite activities right now are playing Hide and Seek and catching tennis balls. If you want to see more of Miso – follow his Instagram account.

How to make Carrot Dog Biscuits

Roll the dough out to about 1/2 inch – 1-2 cm. Otherwise, it will take longer to bake.

The recipe makes a huge batch! I’ve used a small flower cookie cutter (that came in a set of small cookie cutters), they are the ideal sizes for Miso. I was able to get about 130 cookies! (Can you imagine how much these dog cookies would cost in a store?!)

If you have a larger dog, you can use a larger cookie cutter. If you don’t want to cut out cookies, you can also use a pizza cutter to make doggie crackers (it’s a much faster alternative if you don’t have a lot of time at your hands).

Carrot Dog Biscuits

I love that you can get that many cookies out of a batch! The cookies store really well (if you bake them all the way through and let them cool off completely before placing them in an airtight container).

You can spend A LOT OF $$$ for vegan dog treats in stores. Making them at home is inexpensive, fun, you have full control over the ingredients and of course, you can add the most important ingredient: love!

  • 1/2 cup carrot purée *see step 2
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup oat flour
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch cinnamon powder


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C. 
  • Blend 2 carrots with 1/3 cup water. It doesn’t have to be super smooth.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flours and cinnamon powder. Add the carrot purée and stir to combine with a large spoon, then use your hands to make a smooth dough. If it’s too sticky – add more all-purpose flour; if it’s too crumbly – add more water or carrot purée. 
  • Roll out the dough on a floured parchment paper until it’s approx. 1/2 inch (1-2 cm) thick. Cut out the cookies. Transfer the cookies onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Knead together the leftover dough, roll it out again, cut out cookies until you’ve used all the dough. 
  • Bake the doggie biscuits for about 15 minutes until crispy! Let them cool off completely before giving them to your dog or filling them into an airtight container for storage.

I didn't think wheat was great for dogs. I use brown spelt flour when making treats for my dog.

When I’ll do purée, should I do it with cooked carrot?

Hi I make pet treat from home for friends and family and I wanted to ask about this recipe, how long can they be stored for? Do I need to keep them in the fridge after they cool or in a plastic container with a lid on the counter? Can you substitute other foods in place of the carrots? I like to have treats that come in a variety of flavors so people can pick different ones. Thank you and hope you have a great day!

My pups love these!!! I made them 6 days ago I cut them in one inch squares and stored them in an air tight jar after cooling completely. Today they are covered in mold. Yuck! I’m so bummed because I made all that effort for nothing. My dogs are small and maybe get two treats each day. How can I keep them fresh?

@Amanda, I freeze them .. it works quite well

Since you won't use the whole batch within a week, I suggest grouping them into small bags each containing a 1 week supply ( 2 per dog ). Keep 1 in the fridge and store the others in the freezer. Also, I save the little bags of silica that sometimes come with things like beef jerky. They help keep moisture at bay and it's moisture that gives way to mold. I store my biscuits in a baggie with one of the silica packets to help keep them dry.

I love your PUPPY - Miso is sooooooooooooo cute OM Goodness how cute. No wonder you are inspired to create healthy treats for him and THANK YOU for sharing.

I make treats and take them in my car - to give out to friend's puppies ( we had a Westie ) who unfortunately passed away in 2009. I cannot bring myself to have another dog - hate the LOSS of life part - just can't deal with it. so I adopt and puppy sit other dogs.

You are so good to create this healthy recipe. Good for you. I will let you know how my adopted puppies like them.

Oh my god, you're such an incredible being!! This is such a nice thing to do for other pups! I'm so sorry to hear about your westie! I try not to think about it - the 'loss of life part'. Miso is only 1 year old now, but it already makes me super sad thinking about him leaving me once. I can't even.. think about it. Nevertheless, I hope all the pups enjoy the biscuits! :)
