Look, if your pup could make you biscotti for Mother’s Day, I’m sure he would! Maybe all he needs is a helpful hand from Mom and the kids to genuinely show his slobbering affection.  Here is a great treat that your pup will love and the whole family will enjoy making.


Did you get your mom, something nice today? Breakfast in bed? What did you do?

Did you get your mom, something nice today? Breakfast in bed? What did you do?

2 tsp omega 3 oil

  4. Kneed all the ingredients until they are fully mixed together.
  5. Now split the dough into two.
  6. Place onto a lightly floured surface. Mold each piece into a log shape.
  7. Then flatten to each log to be about 4 inches wide. then take a fork and poke holes all over (this allows them to bake throughly).
  8. Place on baking sheets and put them in the oven for about 35-40 mins or until firm.
  9. Let it cool on a rack for about 30 mins. (these treats take a little longer than other treats we’ve made, after all- they’re biscotti, not ur average biscuit)
  10. Lower the oven to 300 degrees.
  11. Cut each log crosswise into 1/4 inch think slices using a sharp knife.
  12. Lay cut side down on baking sheets.
  13. Bake for another 30 mins or until completely hard.
  14. Place on cooling rack until completely cool.
  15. Make your pup give you a Mother’s day smooch in exchange for a yummy biscotti


These Mother’s Day Dog Biscotti are healthy in more ways then one. The pumpkin puree is rich in fiber and helps the digestion process. Honey is a natural sweetener. Omega 3 oil helps with skin and joints. And the crunchiness of the biscotti helps with tartar control. So although you are making a treat for your pup, you’re doing your motherly duties of providing a healthy treat. They will appreciate you more than you know.
