How to make Wheat-Free Salmon Treats

Picture of How to make Wheat-Free Salmon Treats

Mika is my first dog, and being a owner with a picky eater can be exhausting and pricy. I don't give my pup any wheat treats, so this was perfect for her. She isn't much of a peanut butter fan ( shocker I know), but she absolutely loves salmon. 

Here's a simple, and quick treat that you can make for your dog!

Step 1: What you need

There aren't specific brands to use, so use whatever you'd like. 

1. One can of flaked salmon

2. Oatmeal

3. Yellow cornmeal

4. Baking Powder

5. Garlic Powder

6. Water

Step 2: Mixing it all together

To start : 

One can of flaked salmon ( undrained)

One cup of oatmeal

One cup of yellow cornmeal

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/3 cup of water

Mix all these ingredients in a blender, food processor, or you can just mix it yourself. Because I used a blender, every so often I would take a spoon and mix the ingredients so everything gets blended. 

Step 3: Baking process

Preheat your oven to 350 F

After you have mixed everything THOROUGHLY. Knead the dough until it is soft. Place it on a lightly floured surface, and cut it into any pieces. I just rolled them in tiny balls.


Place the cut out pieces on a cookie sheet that's non-stick or greased and bake for 20 to 30 minutes.

** Watch for burning**

Step 4: Finished!

Mika loves these treats, and hopefully your dog will too.

How are you storing these and how long will they keep?

I have them in a container so it stays moist, and won't dry out. I would say a couple of weeks, especially if you put them in the fridge.

Garlic is toxic to dogs.

I talked to my vet about that, and she said a small dosage of a powder was fine. I did some research about it, and did come across that garlic is in many dog treats, but that doesn't mean my dog will be eating garlic (cloves) or powder all the time. It's just up to your preference.
