DIY – Baking for the dog – Yogurt cheese biscuits

It’s time for a new recipe for baking for the dog on the blog! This time I baked training cookies with yogurt and cheese, and my girls loved them!

Feel like baking for the dog?


  • 400g Buckwheat flour
  • 1 bag of grated cheese, as fine as possible (I used the one from Lidl)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 250 grams Greek yogurt
  • Tablespoon beetroot powder (for color, optional)
  • Water
  • A silicone baking mat for dog biscuits (available from Collory and Amazon, among others)


DIY - Baking for the dog - Yogurt cheese biscuits
  1. Oven Preheat: Preheat the oven to 150Β°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, mix the buckwheat flour, cheese and beetroot powder.
  3. Wet Mixture: In another bowl, beat the egg, add the yogurt and melted coconut oil. Mix well.
  4. Combine: Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture, add a dash of water and stir to form a batter. The consistency we are looking for is that of pancake mix, keep adding water until you get that consistency.
  5. Spread over baking mat: Divide the mix over the baking mat (I was able to fill three)
  6. Baking: Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  7. Drying: After baking, you can put the cookies in a food dehydrator (or in the oven) for a few hours to dry completely (optional).

The beetroot powder from the recipe is completely optional, I like to use natural colorings in my baking. I was able to fill three baking mats with the quantities from this recipe, one with hearts and two with balls.

If you don’t have a food dehydrator, you can also dehydrate the cookies in the oven for a few hours, at about 50C. Regularly check how the cookies feel. You can use them while they are still soft, but they keep for a shorter time. They never last very long here, haha! So in principle that is of course no problem at all.

Do you ever do this, baking for the dog? Do you like it as much as I do, and does your dog enjoy the cookies as much?
