I made these last year as gifts for friends and family with 4-legged best friends.  Cinnamon Molasses Dog Biscuits are a perfect way to spoil your fur baby while making the whole house smell like the holidays.  Fair warning… a few friends actually ate these treats themselves!


Cinnamon Molasses Dog Biscuits

Makes 100+ biscuits depending how small you cut them


  • 1 C wheat flour
  • 1 C all purpose flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 t ginger
  • 1/2 C chicken stock (low sodium)
  • 1/3 C blackstrap molasses
  • 3 T vegetable oil


Heat oven to 325.  Line rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.

Combine wheat flour, all purpose flour, baking powder, cinnamon and ginger in a large bowl.  In a separate bowl, mix together chicken stock, molasses and vegetable oil.

Add wet mixture to dry, mixing until it forms a ball.  Roll dough on a lightly floured surface until about 1/4 inch thick.  Use a cookie cutter (if desired) or simply use a pizza cutter to make squares.  Although dog biscuit shapes are adorable, your dog doesn’t care what the biscuits look like.

Place on parchment paper and bake for 25 minutes until crispy and dry.  Set aside to cool.
