The Best Gingerbread Dog Treat Recipe

Stop the press! Sweetie found the best gingerbread dog treat recipe of all time. It's easy and super Yummy! 


You'll need

1 and 1/4 Cups Water

 1/4 Cup Olive Oil

 1/2 Cup Molasses

 2 Tablespoons Honey

 3 Cups Organic Whole Wheat Flour

 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon

 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cloves

 1 Tablespoon finely chopped Fresh Ginger


 2 Large Bowls

 Mixing and measuring utensils

 Rolling Pin

 Gingerbread Cookie Cutter


To make

  1. Get two large bowls. In one bowl combine the water, olive oil, molasses and honey. In the second bowl combine the flour, cinnamon, cloves and finely chopped ginger.
  2. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet. Mix until all are combined.
  3. Divide the dough into two, wrap and refrigerate for a minimum 3.5 hours.
  4. Once chilled, remove dough from the fridge and roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness (less than a centimetre).
  5. Pre-heat oven to 180 C (350 F).
  6. Use your Gingerbread Cookie Cutter to cut out the biscuits. Place on a baking tray. Bake for 10-15 minutes.

Pawsome hints!

* Makes around 20 Large Treats.

* Leaving 1/2 Cup of the Water aside made it easier to mix the wet and dry ingredients. Then as they combined to form a dough, add the remaining water to ensure the mixture doesn't become too damp and sticky.

 * The dough needs to be chilled for a minimum 3.5 hours but can be chilled up to 5 hours.

 * Once the biscuits are cooled you can decorate with drizzled carob or yoghurt drops if desired. 

Sweetie Tip: The above recipe is for treats only and should not replace your dog's regular meal plans. Always check with your vet about any significant changes to your dog's diet.
