This is How We Look When We Get Granda Treats!

This is How We Look When We Get Grandma Treats! – Woo-hoo!

has been making these treats for my siblings and me for almost 20 years. And we love them! They’re great treats for Samoyeds like me!

I know most of you are familiar with my diary entries, but I love these doggie treats so much that I asked my grandma Carole if I could share her famous homemade “Grandma Treat” recipe instead of doing a diary entry. And she said yes! Dog biscuit recipes make me happy. 🙂 The best thing about this particular recipe is that this one includes bacon grease. And you know how I feel about that. BACON!!! Woo-hoo!!

Here are the steps for this quick, easy, and barkilicious recipe!

Recipe for Homemade “Grandma Treats”

Grandma Treats Make Sacha Happy!

Homemade Grandma Treats Make Sacha Happy!


  • 2-1/2 cups whole wheat flour (Grandma says to use regular, NOT white whole wheat)
  • 1/2 cup dry milk
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon wheat germ
  • 1 teaspoon beef bouillon granular  (Grandma prefers to use a beef cube, crushed)
  • 6 Tablespoons bacon grease
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup ice water


First, combine all of the dry ingredients.  Next, add bacon grease, egg and ice water.  Mix well.  My grandma uses her KitchenAid – 4.5 Quart Stand Mixer and it goes in seconds.

Roll to desired thickness and cut into desired shape. Grandma uses a cookie cutter to shape them into dog bones, my personal favorite! But you could  use any shape you want like a heart or something else. If you’ve got knife skills, you could also simply cut them into squares and/or rectangles by hand.

Baking and Storage

Then, bake them in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, turning over half way through the baking time. Grandma says to allow them to cool overnight in the oven (probably best to turn the oven off first 😉 ). Store in a dry container and Voila (I believe that’s French for “Awesome Doggie Treats!”)! Does NOT need refrigeration.

There you have it! Best doggie treats ever! And pretty simple to make too right? I mean if I didn’t have big, hairy, white paws and could grow an opposable thumb, I’ll bet even I could do it!

If you have any questions about the recipe, please leave them for me below. But more importantly, if you make these homemade dog biscuits, please come back and tell me what you think!

Until next time!

    Absolutely adorable companions you got there. And nothing to make them smile like a secret, homemade recipe! Yummy! Do you suggest avoiding white whole wheat then? I may attempt this for my boxer, the ingredients seem pretty easy to get so this is wonderful, I always like to try new things to make everyone happy…dog included!
    Thank you!!

      Hey thanks Mike! That’s my daddy’s name too! To answer your question, if my grandma says no white whole wheat flour, that means no white whole wheat flour. I never argue with grandma! I’m a believer in that idea of never biting the hand that feeds you. Come back and lemme know if your boxer likes them.

    I thought only grandmas would bake for grandchildren hahaha. Cool post anyways. I have a good friend of who is a dog lover. I’m going to tell her that she needs to bake this for her dog, because her dog will love her for that. I got actually tricked once to eat dog candy, it wasn’t very tasty I can tell you. Cool post anyways man keep it up!

    1. Sacha Post author

      Nope, my grandma always bakes for her grandpups too. She’s a good grandma. I don’t know what dog candy is. My parents don’t let me have any candy, especially chocolate. They REALLY don’t want me to get into any chocolate. Oh well…I’ve always got the biscuits!

    OOOOooo I have got to make these. How simple it looks to. I really think my pup will dig these (no pun). And getting her to like much of anything is a challenge. I know garlic is the new no no for Pets But It’s In Many Holistic And Old School Home Remedies For Cats And dogs that have great health benefits. So for anyone concerned about the latest no no it’s like any things else moderation is key and these treats look faaantastic. Can’t wait to try them. I’ll be sure to let you know. Thanks.

      Thanks Bri! My grandma makes these really good. I love ’em! I think I’d probably like them just as much without the garlic too, so that could be elminated if you want. Come back and let me know if your pooch like them!

    Excellent post those dogs are beautiful in your pictures by the way do you own them?
    I recently purchased a dog and I was looking up treats to make her. I typed the question into google and your site appeared. I’m so glad I came across your page. Are these treats for all dogs regardless of age and size? Thanks

      Thanks for commenting! I don’t consider myself to be owned, but this blog is by my pet parents yes. These are more treats for adult dogs but should be good for plenty of other breeds, not just Samoyeds like me. 🙂

    This is cool! I would never have thought about making my own dog biscuits. Good for grandma! If I get another dog, I’ll have to come back to this post and try it out. They sound easy enough to make. Wow, you make me want to go out and buy a dog right now. Thanks for this great article!

    Hi,,very interesting ingredients. Especially the bacon grease and garlic powder. I guess my question might be, is this for all size and type of dogs?, and also, can you buy these somewhere in stead of making them yourself? Nice way for these dogs to have a treat any time of the day I suppose

  7. Alec Terry

    I had never really known that you could make your own home made dog treats. That’s a really cool idea! And I bet they taste better and are better for you than what you could get at the grocery store.

    In fact, as I was reading this article I couldn’t help but laughing at the fact that I would probably eat some of these based off of the ingredients, especially the one that used bacon grease as an ingredient.

    Great post! Can’t wait to read more from you soon!

    Hey, your site has some great information and resources. I love your diary entries on your dog. I also have a dog that I love very much named Pedro, he is a 10 month old bulldog. This is an interesting recipe here, I was looking for some treats recipes because they are so expensive at the pet store. My question is, are these ok for dogs with skin issues?

    1. Sacha Post author

      Thanks Cole. What I would always suggest in a situation like that is to call your veterinarian. Give him the list of ingredients and the recipe and ask him/her if it’s okay given your dog’s skin issues.

      Hmmmm…sounds like you might have inside information. Is that you mommy? If so, tell grandma to get on it!

    I really like the title and the treats. I make my own dog food too due to my besenji has an intestinal disorder, Sometimes she has a hard time processing things that are rough on the stomach. These ingredients look great though, I just might have to try it myself. Thank you for all the information.

    Hi! Thank you for sharing your grandma’s recipe! It seems easy and yummy. I have a Samoyed too and I sometimes made the dog food on my own. It’s much healthier since you know every ingredient inside and it’s also a good money saver! I will definitely try that biscuit out for my dog. 🙂

    Grandma will definitely work on Grandma Treats – as soon as she gets home from ” child sitting” cousin Lauren. Yes, we have been trying to eat more bacon as you suggested, but, gold mine find in Auntie Lynne’s freezer. — lots more bacon grease!
    PS: did you know Grandma had a friend who smelled them baking at the Ranch and would not believe me when I said I was making “Grandma Treats” and came into the kitchen and ATE 3!
