AMAZING!!! I’ve never thought about making my own dog treats. We just adopted a puppy a few weeks ago, and I also just received a jar of Coconut Oil that will be perfect to try in these. (also giving a jar away on my blog right now if you’re interested from Tropical Traditions). Thank you for sharing. Pinning as well.

Just wondering how much beef broth? It says “1/” as though it should be a fraction of a cup?

Sorry about the Jocelyn. It’s 1/2 cup beef broth. I’ll add it in. Thanks for letting me know! :)

Has anybody made these with something like garbanzo or buckwheat flour? Any alterations need to be made to the recipe? I’ve got dogs with food allergies, but would love to try these.

Hi Amy! You could certainly give it a try with different flours. The texture might be a little different but I’m sure most dogs wouldn’t care. Give it a try and let me know how it turns out so I can add an Allergy-Friendly version for others too. Thanks for stopping by! :)

My dog really loved them! I did leave out the beef broth since I couldn’t find any that didn’t contain onions but my pup still wolfed them down! I’m actually making a video on how to make these, I can send you a link when it’s up! Naturally I’ll credit you as the recipe creator and link your post.
