“Our dog, River, WILL NOT eat store bought treats. When we go to my parents house, the dogs always get treats after going "potty". Well, that left her out. I came up with these and she LOVES them. She knows they are "people" food. (Of course, we wouldn't eat them but she doesn't need to know that!) She tends to gets a "sick tummy" alot and the vet doesn't know why but these treats don't bother her at all. I would think they are pretty healthy. This makes about 58 "cookies". We cut each "cookie" in half for her (she's medium sized) and into 4 pieces for my parents dogs because they are pretty small. I freeze in one batch (16 cookies) portions and then take them out as needed. KEEP IN FRIDGE! That's another reason she is sure it is "people" food...comes from the fridge. I haven't done it (yet) but I would think you could substitute chicken or hamburger instead of the roast beef.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray cookie sheets, I do 2 at a time.
  3. I put the roast beef, barbecue sauce and 1/2 cup water in my mini chopper and"chop" until it looks chopped up and then I put it in a mixing bowl.
  4. I then put the veggies and the other 1/2 cup water in the mini chopper and"chop" until veggies are very small, then I put into the mixing bowl with the beef.
  5. I add the cooked rice to the mixing bowl, then stir very well, until it is mixed pretty evenly.
  6. (The dough is kinda"sticky") I add the wheat flour and stir very well with a fork, you have to kinda"mash" it, sometimes I use my hand (grease your hand first) to"knead" it to make sure it is mixed well.
  7. I use a measuring tablespoon and a butter knife, I put some of the dough on the knife and fill the tablespoon and"level" it off, it doesn't have to be perfect.
  8. I use either the knife or my finger and"scoop" the dough out of the tablespoon and put on the cookie sheet as a little"mound" or"ball", it doesn't have to be perfect.
  9. 16 per cookie sheet.
  10. Put in the oven, set timer for 5 minutes.
  11. When timer goes off remove from oven.
  12. Take a glass dipped in water (dip for each) and flatten the"cookie".
  13. Put back in oven, set timer for 5 minutes.
  14. When timer goes off remove from oven.
  15. Turn each"cookie" and put back in oven for 10 more minutes.
  16. (I use kitchen shears to cut mine before freezing).
