RECIPE: Dehydrated Vegetarian Dog Treats


Today we have a special guest recipe from Excalibur Food Dehydrators – America’s top dehydrator manufactured since 1973. I know that many of you know that we’ve often written about our dehydrator (and you’ll find our dehydrator recipes in our The Healthy Hound Cookbook and My Dog Says I’m a Great Cook!)

You can substitute just about any fruit or vegetable in this vegetarian dog treat recipe to add variety. This recipe uses an egg as a binding agent but if you want to make these treats vegan– just mix the dough longer and omit the egg.


Dehydrated Vegetarian Dog Treats


  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup dry milk powder
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tbs. brown sugar
  • 2 vegetable bouillon cubes; dissolved in 3/4 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup carrots green beans, apples, or blueberries
  • 1 egg optional


  1. In a large bowl mix all ingredients and form into a ball. On a flour dusted cutting board, roll out the dough to about 1/4" thick.
  2. Cut with bone-shaped cookie cutter or any cutter shape your pet will like.
  3. Dehydrate at the highest setting 145 - 155 until done.
  4. Approximately 6 - 8 hours. Add time if needed as treats should be VERY dry.
