Dog Treat Recipe: Cinnamon Christmas Cookies for Canines

christmas dog treat recipe blogThere’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 covering a baking sheet with 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!

Note: Always speak with a veterinarian if you have any questions or concerns about homemade pet treat ingredients.

    It’s my understanding that nuts are toxic in varying degrees to dogs. Pecans contain juglone, which can cause gastric upset or even obstructions. Why would you put nuts in a dog biscuit?

      Hello. Thank you for your input. We’ve done some research, and it doesn’t appear that pecans have made the ASPCA’s list of dangerous foods. However, just to be sure, we’ve edited the recipe to exclude this ingredient. Thank you and happy holidays.
