I love Halloween! The costumes, the candy, the haunted houses, the candy, the Halloween parties, the candy. I don’t know about you, but I dress Oscar up for the holiday (this year, he’s going as Spock from Star Trek), and I want him to have his own Halloween treats. And that’s where the Boo! Baby Beef Dog Treat Recipe comes in. I used a beef baby food to add into the recipe to give it a beef boost. And since it’s already pureed, I didn’t have to pull out the food processor to beat the beef into a smooth, gooey mess. What a time saver!

Boo! Baby Beef Dog Treat Recipe

Makes about 30 treats


1 ½ cups whole wheat flour

1/3 cup wheat bran

1/4 cup nonfat dry milk powder

1 egg

1 tablespoon brewers’ yeast

1 (3.5 ounce) jar pureed beef baby food

1/4 cup beef broth


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, wheat bran, milk powder, egg, brewers’ yeast and baby food. Add beef broth to the dough and mix.
  3. Roll out dough on a floured surface to ½ inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutters and place on cookie sheets.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet to cool on wire racks. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator or freezer.

Now when pooches come to your door all dressed up for trick or treating, you’ll have a homemade treat to give them (because no one wants the dog to leave a smelly “treat” on your lawn!).
