Honey Cinnamon Dog Treats

By Alexandra Smith

It’s the time of year when many people begin to bake more often. The air outside is chilly, and a warm treat helps combat the cold. While baking your favorite holiday treats, try whipping up these honey cinnamon dog treats for your furry friend.

They’re made with ingredients almost anyone has in their kitchen, and they’re a lot healthier than most dog treats sold in stores. This recipe makes about two dozen biscuits your pup will love, and they can be stored in an airtight container for up to six months.

Honey Cinnamon Dog Treats

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 large egg
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl stir together milk, oil and egg. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and stir until just combined.
3. On a lightly floured surface, roll or pat the dough into a rectangle that measures roughly 8×14-inches. Cut the dough into small shapes with a cookie cutter, biscuit cutter, or with the rim of a glass.
4. Place treats about 1/4 inch apart on baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes. Remember to let the treats cool completely before serving your dog.
