Tasty Tuesday: Bake a Bone - a review

Aunt C gave the Lady "Bake a Bone" for her birthday. Aunt C and the Lady couldn't wait to try it out on Saturday. Here is how it went:

Here is the recipe they picked:

Aunt C adding the flour:

Mashed Banana . . . . mmmmmm

Ready to roll the peanuts:

The mix:

Hailey supervising:

Getting ready to cook it.

They are all done:

Cooling . . . . . .


The Pros:
  • Recipes are easy to follow and most use ingredients you likely have in the house. 
  • There are 30 recipes.
  • It heats up quickly.
  • There are mixes you could purchase for people who don't want to do the effort (the store didn't have any when Aunt C bought it - so we can't say if they are any good).
  • Lady likes that she knows exactly what is going into our treats.
  • They are soft and chewy (at first Phod didn't see them as food, but once he realized they were, he loved them).
  • It is easy to clean.
  • The dogs really loved them.
  • The humans found them bland (likely because there is no sugar) so they won't be eating them!

The Cons:
  • You only cook 4 cookies at a time (and our batch made 28 cookies).
  • It takes about 8 minutes to cook four, so cooking time is long.
  • It can be hard to get the exact amount of batter into the spots so not all the cookies turned out as perfect bones (I did get better at this as I went).
  • You have to be sure there are no air bubbles in the batter or it will collapse!

Overall, we give this product 3/4 paws. The only real draw back is the cooking time (the dogs don't care if the cookies aren't perfect looking!)

Thanks Aunt C for such a great gift for Lady!


  1. As soon as I saw the picture, I tried to warn Aunt C that doggy stuff looks good but doesn't taste good, but she couldn't hear me. I have never seen Bake a Bone. Very cool. Cute faces on your header!

  2. Love Bake A Bone. What fun and looks like you will have lots of treats to try out. Nice one Aunt C. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. OMD OMD Your PEEPS tried EATING YOUR SNACKS??????????? THAT is soooooo WRONG. SOOOOOOOO VERY WRONG. BUTT at least they didn't LIKE them so that means it won't happen again.
    THAT is a COOL treat bakering thingy. We think that it was very thoughtful of your Aunty to have gotten it fur you.
    We want to see MORE thingys from that Super Pressie.

  4. OMD! You got one of those bones machines, how exciting!! We saw it advertised on TV the other night and it gave us a good laugh. Now we know that someone has one we were really excited to read your review.

    The bones look great! It does take a long time to cook them, but isn't that half the fun?

  5. WELL...we were just wondering if Aunt C is on loan and would drive over to our house and make us up a batch of those cookies cos you know my mom and why we want Aunt C to do it.........sigh......

    THE INGREDIENTS SOUND DELICIOUS TOO. BUT OMDs making 4 at a time one could starve waiting and one could also get into mischief while one waits and we all know Hailey and Phod do not need to get into any more mischief.
    hugs and thanks for sharing
    madi your bfff

  7. What a WAY WAY cool machine to make your OWN homemade treats with ingredients that are actually GOOD for you and no filler junk! WOO WOO.....

  8. Ohhhhh yes, we gots one, a different brand. It just has a flat grill and several cookie cutter shape, so we can make like a dozen at a t time, man them peanut butter ones make My eyes roll back!

  9. This is the BEST review of this product that i have seen! You did an amazing job! I saw one review where the person was so fed up with how (soft) the bones came out that she threw out the whole thing!
    I saw another where they didn't like it either.
    You did a super good job and your bones came out really nice looking!!

  10. Fresh treats...hot off the press! Great. SHE says it's one more thing to find a place for, but we'd love to have one. SHE hasn't make us any bone treats for a LONG time.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  11. WOW! That is the coolest thing EVER!!! It is so nice that your Auntie bought that for you! Too bad they only cook four at a time--I bet it doesn't take very long for you kids to eat four, does it?!?!

  12. Hope that cook is on her way over here
