Lavender Chamomile Bedtime Dog Biscuits {Grain-Free}

Each night, when Ray and I are ready to go into bed, our boys know that they have to go “Night-Night Pee-Pee.” As we are getting up from the living room and shutting off the lights, we’ll say to them “Come’on let’s go night-night pee-pee” and they immediately know to go to the back to to be let outside and they aren’t allow back in until they pee.


When they come back in the house they also know to sit right by the door, waiting for their treat. (we train our boys using positive reinforcement) Instead of giving them their normal reward of a Homemade Dog Treat, they get a Chamomile Lavender Bedtime Dog Biscuit to help them relax for bed.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Place silicone bone pan(s) on a cookie sheet – lightly grease with avocado oil spray.
  • Combine all ingredients, mix well. Dough will be slightly crumbly but will hold together when pressed into a ball in your hand.
  • Take a small piece of dough and form a ball. Press into the silicone bone pan. Repeat until the pan(s) are full.
  • Bake at 275 for 45 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Flip each silicone pan upside down onto a cooling rack. Allow Bedtime Biscuits to cool completely.

Notes

One recipe will make approximately 4 pans of small bones. If you do not have 4 of them work in batches.

    1. they aren’t a direct replacement 1:1 – coconut flour is very “spongy” and will absorb liquid where as almond flour will not.

  1. 5 stars
    I am getting a puppy in 2 weeks. I have been concerned about ripping her from her brothers and sisters and mom and dad. This is what I have been looking for. I would like to make the transition as easy as possible. This should help. Thanks so much!

  2. Hello! And thank you for your wonderful recipe! I was wondering if the dried chamomile and lavender are in powder form, or if you are referring to the dried flower, also, could I substitute the coconut flour for gluten free oats flour?
    Kind regards,
    Loriann

  3. Are these safe for dogs I would really like to make these for my dogs out I’ve googled is it safe for dogs to have dried lavender an dried chamomile and they say different things x

    1. Hey Jenny – great question. I’m going to say this to you like as if we were hanging out in my kitchen, having a causal discussion. I understand your worry but if we dissect a bag of dog food and look at the ingredients MANY of those ‘approved’ ingredients are also questionable from a health perspective. The same with all veterinarian approved drugs, vaccines, treatments, right?

      I did a search (probably similar to what you did) and both chamomile and lavender pose NO significant risk to your beloved dog. And by significant risk what I am saying is to think of every single individual component in your or your pets diet and understand that in excess most are toxic to some degree, We all need water but too much water can kill us. We all need protein but eating only lean protein causes nutritional deficiencies. You might take a couple OCT pain relievers for a headache, but taking the whole bottle would kill you….. The same applies to herbal remedies for both humans and our beloved pets.

      Does this make sense?

      This is the same argument we hear about things like onions and garlic for dogs being dangerous. Is there the potential that your dog COULD get sick from eating dried chamomile or lavender in extremely large quantities, yes but that is also true of most other ingredients that we give to them daily.

      Our dogs LOVE to pick their own apples that fall from our apple trees. They eat the entire apple. When I mention that on social media there is a panicked segment that says that apple seeds will kill our dogs… and they are correct… if our dog ate 20+ large apples and sufficiently ground/chewed every apple seed there MIGHT be some concern… but even Hercules our black lab with an insatiable appetite only enjoys a few apples a day.

      In most cases it comes down to dose.

      What upsets me the most is when we meticulously dissect a homemade natural recipe and worry it’s toxic, but would easily give a dog a pharmaceutical drug instead that, if the same research was done, one would realize that it’s statistically more likely to harm your pet.

      1. That was a tremendous reply, Hayley! People freak over a dog eating a few pieces of garlic, but then we feed them that questionable stuff out of a bag. Maybe we could ALL use a few of these bones to relax a bit! 🙂
        I’m looking forward to making your recipe.

  4. Hi Hayley, my dog has an allergy to chamomile, so not sure whether to double the lavender or if this wouldn’t taste as a nice?

  5. Tasty and aromatic treats but they didn’t hold up well as they were super crumbly. I will continue to play with recipe to see how we can bind them better as maybe half stayed intact once cooled and removed from molds. Dogs still like them so we will use crumbles with their food

  6. Made this for my pup and he LOVES it keeps asking me for more and more lol! The recipe is perfect I did not have apple sauce I just sub the apple sauce with half banana pure and half peanut butter equals amounts to apple sauce. and added some cinnamon since the recipe called for cinnamon apple sauce.
    Turned out beautiful

  7. Hey Hayley,

    When you say they keep in the freezer for a few months, when they defrost do they go wet?

    Would you suggest placing in the oven for 5 minutes after defrosting?

  8. Is there anything missing from this recipe? Like have any of the measurements changed? Just wondering because I attempted this recipe today and it turned out nothing like described … Not crumbly whatsoever, just very wet. Is the coconut oil going in melted or solid?

    1. the recipe works as written, the fat is melted. Are you certain that you used the ingredients as listed? Coconut Flour soaks up liquids and the amount in the recipe is sufficient for the liquids.

    1. like all baked goods, a few days at room temp. about a week in the fridge and a few months in the freezer.

    1. I would recommend testing 1-2 and see how your pet reacts. With herbal options there isn’t a true ideal amount.

    1. there are links to purchase the exact dried lavender and chamomile that I use and recommend in the post and the recipe.

  9. If I were to make this with Whole Wheat Flour versus the Coconut Flour would I still use the same amount of flour? I have never used coconut flour.

    Thanks!

    1. I can’t suggest using wheat flour for dog treats from a health perspective. You can find coconut flour at most grocery stores.

      1. “Avocado contains a toxin called persin, but despite the rumors, avocado is not poisonous to dogs, nor likely to cats.” http://www.petpoisonhelpline.com/poison/avocado/

  10. Can’t wait to try this recipe!! When you say air tight container, do you mean they’ll keep okay on the counter? I just worry because they have eggs… Thanks!

  11. Based on the size of the dog, would you adjust the amounts of the chamomile & lavender in the recipe or doesn’t it matter? Was just curious-thanks!

  12. Hi thanks for the recipes. Can you tell me the shelf life or does ave to be refrigerated. And if so how ling will they keep for.
    Thanks!

    1. nope. just stir them in. The lavender flowers are small and the chamomile is fragile so they break apart.

      1. I ended up with chamomile powder instead of flower. I lowered it to a fourth of a cup. Does that sound about right? I’m mixing it up now. Will wait to comment till I can tell the consistency.
        Looks and feels okay to me.
