How to Make Diabetic Dog Treats

I've never had a diabetic dog, but one in 400 dogs develops the disease. In honor of the many pups with the medical problem, I pulled a recipe from one of my favorite sites,, for doggie treats for diabetic dogs. This recipe got a bangin' five stars. Here's the gold:

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Ready in: 20 minutes

Servings: 36 (Note: if you want to make less or more, click the title of the recipe above, which will take you to the original recipe. There, you can change the servings and it will recalculate the ingredient portions accordingly)


1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 eggs
1-1/2 pounds beef liver, cut into pieces


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place the liver into a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped. If you have room, add the flour and eggs, and process until smooth. Otherwise, transfer to a bowl, and stir in the flour and eggs using a wooden spoon. Spread evenly in the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the center is firm. Cool, and cut into squares using a pizza cutter. The treats will have a consistency similar to a sponge. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
