There’s a lot of baking going on this time of year! To include your dog in the festivities, try this tasty recipe! The cinnamon in these canine cookies is sure to make your home smell like the holidays.
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- ½ cup non-fat milk
- ¼ cup canola oil
- 2 tablespoons honey (optional)
- 1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees and spraying a baking sheet with a thin layer of non-stick spray (alternatively, you can use oven-safe parchment paper). Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, stir the water, oil and egg together. Mix wet and dry ingredients together until dough forms. Use a rolling pin to roll dough out into a large rectangle. Drizzle the dough with honey and sprinkle cinnamon on top. Roll the dough up and use a knife to slice the dough into ½ inch thick pieces (like a jelly roll). Place the treats on a baking sheet and bake for 13-15 minutes.
Let the treats cool completely before you let your dog indulge! For more pet treat recipes, be sure to get your copy of VetDepot’s Favorite Dog & Cat Treat Recipes. Happy holidays to you and your canine companion!
