The Oaktown Pack Dog Treat Recipe

Last Christmas, the Oaktown Pack gave us these deeeeelicious healthy treats which are part of their homemade dog food repertoire.

These treats are so tasty, you won’t even know they’re healthy. The recipe can be tailored for Tripawds with cancer too.

Codie Rae’s Crunchy Health Treats


  • 2.5 cups flour: try brown rice, rye, quinoa or barley for dogs battling cancer, or whole wheat if you aren’t concerned about carbs.
  • 1/2 cup oat bran
  • 1/3 cup semolina flour
  • 3/4 cup grated chese
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons oil
  • 2 teaspoons peanut butter
  • 1 cup water

Place the flour in a food processor along with the cheese and peanut butter. Process until completely incorporated.

With the machine still running slowly add the beaten egg followed by the water. The mixture needs to be on the wet side. Let rest for five minutes and process again.

Divide the dough into two portions and roll it on a floured board and then cut into squares of the appropriate size with a pizza cutter. If you want you can make tiny training treats. You can also use a cookie cutter if you want special shapes.

Bake on a parchment lined sheet for 20-25 minutes at 300 degrees F, turn over and bake another 20-25 minutes.

If you want crispier treats cook them longer. We have found it can help to let them sit over night after the two bakes before cooking a third time to get extra crispy versions.

Don’t miss this healthy homemade dog food diet recipe from the Oaktown kitchen too!

  1. I’m disappointed that all the “cancer friendly” dog treats I’ve found on Tripawds are still grain based. Rice and quinoa are still carbohydrates that turn to sugar in the body and are bad for fighting cancer.
    But rather than whimp about it, I’m going to experiment and make a grain-free treat recipe and post it in the forums.

  2. For the record, Codie Rae does not have cancer so this should not be considered a recipe specifically for cancer dogs. Also since, writing this we’ve discovered Dr. Dressler’s Cancer Survival Guide and his recommendations to substitute oats.

    We’ve written in depth about premium grain free foods and even totally starch free dog food.

    We’ll look into more grain free treats soon. Did you see Laura’s treat recipe for Captain Jack and Dr. Dressler’s suggestions?

    Please feel free to contribute any recipes you find or develop for us to share with others here.

  3. Hi Indi, yeah, just wanted to add that not all Tripawds have cancer, so we do try our best to address both audiences. Dr. Dressler does say that for bulk when it comes to treats and home cooking, brown rice and oats is an OK option instead of starchier and more hi carb ingredients.

    We would loooooove to see your treat recipes! Thanks for the feedback.
