There are few things nicer than preparing a home-cooked meal for your loved ones and friends—except for maybe whipping up a few healthy treats for your furry friends! Treats are a great way to train and reward your dog but many of the pre-made options you can find on the market today are full of fillers and sugars. Luckily, making healthy dog treats is simple and easy enough that even novice cooks can do it. Check out a few of our favorite healthy dog treat recipes below.

For this simple recipe, you’ll only need 4 ingredients that you most likely already have in your apartment. Mix together flour, eggs and peanut butter to make a tasty and natural treat.
2. Tasty Chicken Treats
Chicken is a staple protein in many dog food recipes. Not only do dogs love the way it tastes but it’s super healthy too. If you’ve been having trouble finding a good protein that your dog will stick with, chicken may be the answer. For this treat recipe, you’ll need chicken, cooked rice, flour, 1 egg and parsley.
