Fruit Dog Biscuits

Make homemade fruit dog biscuits and your kitchen will smell fresh and inviting!

This recipe is for those dogs that enjoy citrus flavors. These fruit dog treats were baked by Cristina's Dog Treats, a dog bakery based in Tillamook, Oregon.

  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup oatmeal 
  • 2 cups flour or rice
  • 1 orange zested and juiced
  • 1 lemon zested and juiced


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Zest the orange and the lemon
  • Microwave for 10 seconds to help release the juice
  • Mix all the ingredients together to form a dough
  • Knead the dough and roll out
  • Cut shapes as desired
  • Bake in oven for 15 minutes

The recipe asks you to "zest". Just what does that mean?

As Cristina explains, "You take the fruit peels and scrape the very top. Do not use any of the white part of the peel." The white part, or "pith", tastes bitter which is why you do not want to include any in the dough!

There is a baking tool called a zester made just for this very instruction and makes it easy. Move the zester all across the peel in a horizontal direction.
