Leader Resource 2: Vegan Dog Treats Recipe

This recipe comes from the Gourmet Sleuth.

After mixing all the ingredients and kneading, divide the dough into small batches. Have children work in groups of three to roll dough, cut shapes, and place biscuits on flat cookie sheets. Help children tear off sheets of wax paper to separate layers of uncooked biscuits.


  • Large mixing bowl and wooden spoon
  • Flat surface(s) that can be floured
  • Rolling pin(s)
  • Flat cookie sheet(s)
  • Unbleached wax paper


  • 9 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon yeast extract


Mix dry ingredients. Add approximately the water. Knead into a pliable dough. Roll out to 1/8" thickness. Cut into desired shapes. Bake for 10-15 minutes at 350F. (Important: After turning off oven, leave biscuits in the oven overnight or for an 8-hour period so they become hard and crunchy.)
