Dog friendly Anzac biscuits

Apr 25, 2021

ANZAC biscuits were originally made by the wives and mothers of soldiers fighting in World War I and sent to them in packages.

Most of the ingredients that make these treats are safe for dogs to eat but we've tweaked it a bit to replace the sugar and the butter.

While dogs can technically eat butter, it's not a good option for your dog as it's mostly just saturated fat with no health benefits, so is sugar. Fat can lead to problems such a pancreatitis.

Let's stay on the safe side with this delicious dog friendly Anzac biscuits recipe!


  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup natural applesauce
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut.
  • 2 tbs golden syrup or molasses
  • 1 tbs water
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda


  1. Preheat oven to 175°C and line a tray with baking paper.
  2. Sift the flour into a bowl. Add the oats, and coconut.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the applesauce, & golden syrup.
  4. Stir the bicarbonate of soda into the liquid mixture.
  5. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  6. Using a spoon, roll out bite-size balls and place on baking tray.
  7. Bake for 12-15min or until golden. Make sure they have cooled down before serving to your dog!

Oats are a great source of dietary fibers, promoting healthy digestion. They are also high in protein compared to other grains. These very nutritious guys can increase energy levels in dogs.
