Last year, I wrote an article on the “best treats for huskies” and everyone liked it so much, the request for more homemade recipes has been non-stop! So, that’s exactly what this post contains!

Here are another 10 tasty homemade treats for Huskies that are actually healthy. Ingredients are carefully thought of, as we all know just how sensitive our husky’s stomach can be! They’re all super tasty and much healthier than store-bought Husky treats.

If you didn’t see the previous article I’m referring to, you can check it out here: https://www.myhappyhusky.com/best-treats-for-huskies/

Below are 10 simple homemade dog treats for huskies, they’re all healthy and avoid common allergens that could upset your furry friend’s stomach!

Before we get started, I’ll cover important information regarding toxic items and ingredients that you should avoid and some further advice on the use of certain ingredients used including peanut butter, flour, yogurt, and fruit.


Avoid using the following in your homemade treats:

The items below should be avoided and some are even toxic for our furry friend. Some are more dangerous than others and pose different health risks, but just to be safe, avoid all of them.

Stay clear of the following ingredients:

  • Grapes, raisins. figs, and dates
  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • Chocolate (dark, milk or white)
  • Dairy products
  • Raw eggs
  • Highly salted items
  • Garlic, onions, and chives
  • Avocado
  • Cooked bones
  • Fatty meat cuttings
  • Fruits pits & seeds
  • Highly sugared items
  • Candy
  • Toothpaste
  • Chewing gum
  • Yeast
  • Macadamia nuts, black walnuts, pecan, pistachio or almond nuts.

This list is helpful to know regardless of making yummy treats, these items are in so many low-quality commercial dog-treats these days, it helps to know what to look for.


Important things to remember

With all the recipes you should try to be careful with the ingredients you use and make sure they are high quality and healthy.

1) Peanut butter

Peanut butter is used in a lot of homemade dog treat recipes, so make sure you get a salt free AND Xylitol free option. Salt and Xylitol are both very bad for all dogs, not just Huskies. In high amounts, these two ingredients can even be toxic.

2) Flour

Most of the recipes below will use flour, you can use any flour but the best would be coconut flour. Although coconut flour is more expensive than regular flour or wheat flour, it’s less likely to irritate or negatively affect your Husky’s digestive system.

You should definitely avoid whole wheat flour if your dog has a wheat intolerance.

3) Yogurt

For the recipes using yogurt, make sure to get a dairy-free option like greek yogurt. Huskies and nearly all dogs are lactose intolerant and struggle to digest dairy products. Your Husky likely has a sensitive stomach anyway so it’s important to avoid dairy whenever you can.

4) Fruits

When it comes to fruits, not all are safe for Huskies, or dogs in general. Make sure you know which ones are safe and healthy. I have a helpful article covering all the safe and unsafe fruits you can see here.

The fruits used in the recipes above are all safe, but you MUST remove any seeds, pips or cores if that fruit has them.


10 Tasty Healthy Homemade Treats For Huskies

Let’s get into it! The following recipes are all super easy and won’t take much preparation time. These recipes are flexible and certain ingredients can be substituted for other things if you feel like it.

Although these treats are healthy, you should always consider your Husky’s diet and feeding times, try not to disrupt their meal times by giving treats too close to these times. and be careful about their caloric intake!

1) Beef Brocolli Biscuit Chunks

Beef Brocolli Biscuit Chunks husky treats

Let’s start off with some meaty flavors to get your Husky drooling. A lot of dog owners are not sure which vegetable dogs can eat, broccoli is one of them, and is very nutritious. These biscuits are easy to make and you can even make them with your leftover from Sunday lunch (if you want to).

Broccoli contains a high amount of Vitamin C and K, potassium, folic acid, and fiber which is particularly helpful for Huskies who have digestive issues. Antioxidants are abundant and will support the health of their immune system.

What you need:
1 cup of coconut flour
1 egg
1 cup of beef broth. Use the stock that you have leftover whenever you cook fresh beef for your family (avoid high salty stock cubes)
1/2 cup of diced broccoli

Directions:
1) Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
2) If using already cooked broccoli, dice down into small pieces. If using raw broccoli, dice down into extra small pieces, to ensure cooking
3) Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl
4) After mixing well, separate dough into small chunks and place evenly on a baking tray
5) Cook for 25-30 minutes, keep checking the bottoms to avoid burning

Tips:
You can include real chunks of beef if you like, but ensure make sure it’s only a small amount, 30 grams or less. Too much protein or calories in treats can easily disrupt their mealtimes.

Using real beef stock will keep the biscuits significantly healthier. If this isn’t available use a salt-free or low-sodium beef stock cube


2) Apple Cinnamon Oat Cookies

Apple Cinnamon Oat Cookies husky treat

You may instantly think cinnamon is safe for dogs? Yes, it is and provides a lot of powerful anti-inflammatory, vitamins, and antioxidants. It also helps to fight diabetes. Source (Petmd)

Oats are a great source of carbohydrates that will provide slow-releasing energy for your dog throughout the day. Oats contain a lot of fiber to help with your Husky’s digestion. Go sparingly on these treats as they will be quite filling.

Dogs can eat apples, just make sure you REMOVE the core and pips!

What you need:
2 cup of quick-cook oatmeal
1 egg (large)
1 apple (small)
1 cup of water
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions:
1) Set your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
2) Chop the apple into very small chunks
3) Remove apple CORE & PIPS (do not use in the recipe)
4) Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl
5) Separate dough evenly on a baking tray
6) Cook for 20-25 minutes. Ensure cookies do not burn

Tips:
You can use regular oats, but quick-cook oats work very well. Both of these oats will act as a mixer and it’s a great alternative if your Husky has a wheat allergy.


3) Salmon & Sweet Potato Bites

Salmon & Sweet Potato Bites

Yep, this one can be a little smelly, but your Husky will approve! Salmon is a fantastic source of healthy fats including omega 3 and 6. It’s a great source of protein that is more easily digestible compared to chicken.

Sweet potato is a clean and safe source of carbohydrates that contain many additional health benefits like vitamins like B6, C, and A. Sweet potato has a good amount of fiber which will aid in digestion for your Husky’s sensitive stomach

What you need:
2 eggs (medium)
1 can of salmon
1 sweet potato (medium or small)
1/2 cup coconut flour

Directions:
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
2) Boil sweet potato until soft, then mash thoroughly
3) In a large mixing bowl, mix coconut flour, eggs, salmon and potato
5) Separate dough in small squares onto a pregreased baking tray
6) Cook for 35 minutes, ensure no burning

Tips:
If you don’t have the time to boil the sweet potato, you can slice and dice it raw and include it in the mixture, it has to be small in order to cook in the same amount of time.

These treats will not have a long shelf life, keep them refrigerated or frozen and only take them out when you intend on using them.


4) Cranberry Coconut Biscuits

Cranberry Coconut Biscuits

Cranberries are one of the safe fruits for Huskies and contain powerful antioxidants, vitamin C, fiber, and magnesium. Cranberries can also help fight urinary tract infections in dogs.

Coconut is safe for dogs, but it should be given in small amounts. It can cause some bloating with certain breeds. Huskies in particular typically digest coconut without any issues, but every husky is different. Despite this, coconut provides essential healthy fats, keeps skin healthy and can help with allergies. It can also help reduce yeast infections due to anti-inflammatory properties.

What you need:
1 egg (large)
2 cup Coconut Flour
1/2 cup dried cranberries (avoid added sugar options)
1/2 cup of water
1/4 cup coconut shavings

Directions:
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
2) Dice coconut shavings to make them very small
3) Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl
4) Separate dough into small equal circles on a pregreased baking tray
5) Cook for 25-30 minutes (ensure no burning)

Tips:
Dried cranberries can contain high sugar content so opt for a natural one without added sugar. Even then sugar can still be a little high, so keep the amount you use low. Cranberries have a lot of flavor, so you don’t need a lot.


5) Frozen Peanut Butter Yogurt Biscuits

Frozen Peanut Butter Yogurt Biscuits dog treat

But yogurt is dairy? fortunately, there are many great dairy-free yogurt options available in most supermarkets (greek yogurt is dairy-free). You can make frozen yogurt but just freezing regular yogurt. This is an exciting treat that you Husky will LOVE, especially on a hot day after a long walk.

Peanut butter is an all-time favorite for dogs and the Husky I live with the Philippines absolutely loves peanut butter. Peanuts are safe for dogs (they’re not actually a nut, they’re a legume!)

What you need:
1 tub of dairy-free yogurt, Greek yogurt is a good option
1/2 cup of peanut butter (salt-free peanut butter!)
Cupcake papers

Directions:
1) Melt the peanut butter so it’s easier to work with
2) Mix the melted peanut butter in with the yogurt thoroughly
3) Put even amounts of the mixture in cupcake papers
4) Place in the freezer

Tips:
Admittedly, dairy-free yogurt or greek yogurt can be expensive so this homemade treat may only be a once-in-a-while thing, but still, your Husky will love it!


6) Turkey & Bacon Biscuit Bites

Turkey & Bacon Biscuit Bites treat

We know it already! ALL dogs love meat, not just Huskies! These turkey & bacon biscuit bites will leave your floors with drool, so grab a mop! 😉

These are super easy to make but we have to address the bacon issue. We aren’t suggesting using bacon fat, you should use bacon meat and we’re only going to be using a very small amount, as it typically has a high salt level.

What you need:
2 cups coconut flour
1 egg (large)
1 cup of water
1/4 cup of diced bacon
2 or 3 slices of pre-cooked turkey breast

Directions:
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
2) Dice turkey breast and bacon into small chunks
3) Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl
4) Separate dough into small equal chunks on a pregreased baking tray
5) Cook for 35 minutes. Ensure no burning throughout

Tips:
For extra flavor, try using any leftover turkey and turkey broth from your family dinner. This will be tastier than using sliced turkey bought from the shop. Always check salt contents of sliced turkey and especially bacon.


7) Frozen Raspberry Chicken Bones

Frozen Raspberry Chicken Bones husky treats

We may not typically put these two together for our family, but for our Huskies, YES! These are very easy to make, and there’s no cooking required.

Raspberries are a superfruit for dogs and contain powerful antioxidants, vitamins C, K, and, B complex, potassium, copper, magnesium, and manganese. This blast of berries will help keep our furry friends strong and healthy

What you need:
1 cup of fresh raspberries
1 cup of chicken broth or chicken stock
1 cup of water
1 cup of dairy-free yogurt (optional extra)

Directions:
1) Wash the raspberries and mash them up to create a raspberry paste
2) Mix the raspberry paste, chicken stock and water in a mixing bowl
3) Pour the liquid mixture equally into the bone molds
4) Freeze for 4-5 hours

Extra steps: (optional)
If you want to use some dairy-free yogurt to make the treats even yummier, you can take the semi-frozen bones out after 2 hours, and dip the bones in the yogurt, place on a baking tray back in the freezer for another 2 hours.


8) Parsley Passion Biscuit Bakes

Parsley Passion Biscuit Bakes dog treats

This isn’t just a tasty treat, it will act as a bad breath neutralizer. Something very useful if your fluffy friend has a spell of bad breath. Parsley will also aid in digestion and it contains a high amount of vitamins A and C and antioxidants.

Be careful not to pick up “Spring Parsley” this isn’t actually parsley (part of the carrot family) and is toxic to dogs. If you’re unsure of what your store is selling, skip this treat for now.

What you need:
2 cups of coconut flour
1.5 tablespoons of dried or fresh parsley
1 cup of quick-cook oatmeal
1 egg (large)
1 cup of water
1 tablespoon of peanut butter (optional)

Directions:
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
2) In a large mixing bowl, mix together all ingredients
3) Add peanut butter for extra flavor, but this is just optional
4) Separate into small even squares on a pregreased baking tray
5) Cook for 30 minutes, ensure no burning.

Tips:
If you opt for fresh parsley you could add 2 tablespoons instead of 1.5, fresh parsley can vary in strength. The health benefits of fresh parsley are significantly higher compared to dried parsley, so opt for fresh if you can.


9) Blueberry Banana Cookies

Blueberry Banana Cookies husky treats

Give your Husky a fun, fruity health kick with these biscuits. Blueberries are considered superfoods even for dogs. They contain powerful antioxidants and contain a high amount of vitamin A, B, C, E, and K. Blueberries are actually used in a lot of dog foods and treats for this very reason.

The banana will blend well with the mixture and add great flavor to the biscuits. Bananas are rich in potassium and vitamins C and B6.

What you need:
1 cup coconut flour
1 cup rolled oats or quick-cook oatmeal
1 egg (large)
1 mashed banana
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup of water
1 tablespoon peanut butter (optional but EXTRA tasty)

Directions:
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
2) Mash 1 whole banana into a paste
3) Mix remaining ingredients in mixing bowl
4) Separate mixture in small circles onto a pregreased baking tray
5) Cook for 30 minutes. Ensure no burning

Tips:
It’s tastier and more appealing with peanut butter, just be sure to use salt-free peanut butter.


10) Beefy Apple and Carrot Biscuits

Beefy Apple and Carrot Biscuits

Another meaty option for your Husky. These three flavors go surprisingly well and seem to be a favorite amongst other dog owners. You may just find your Husky to be extra attentive during training if you have these biscuits in your hand!

Apple and carrot will both act as a health kick and combined have a wide range of antioxidants vitamins and minerals. Some of the benefits include vitamin C and K1, fiber, potassium, flavonoids, phytonutrients, beta-carotene.

What you need:
2 cups of whole wheat flour or coconut flour
1 egg (medium)
1 cup of fresh beef broth, if using a stock cube, opt for low sodium
1 grated carrot (no skin)
1/2 cup chopped apple (remove seeds and core!)

Directions:
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
2) Remove the carrot peel and grate
3) Chop apple into small pieces. You must remove seeds and core
4) Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl
5) Separate mixture onto a pregreased baking tray
6) Cook for 35 minutes, ensure no burning.

Tips:
Instead of beef broth, you can add tiny chunks of real beef for some high-quality protein. Add a little water if you remove the broth. Apples and carrots will have a lot of moisture so only add a little water.
