Recipe: Gingerbread Dog Biscuits

Nothing says “Happy Holidays” like a gingerbread biscuit and there is no reason for your furry family members not to partake in the festivities or stack up a few biscuits, tie with a red ribbon for the perfect gift.


3 cups whole wheat flour
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground cloves
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
1 and ¼ cups water
¼ cup olive oil
½ cup molasses
2 tablespoons honey


  • Preheat oven to 350°F  (180 °C)
  • Use two bowls. Combine the wheat flour, cinnamon, cloves and ginger in one bowl
  • Combine the water, olive oil, molasses and honey in the second bowl
  • Add the liquid mixture slowly to the dry ingredients and mix together until well combined
  • Divide the dough into two, wrap and refrigerate for approx. 4-5 hours
  • Roll the dough out to approx. ½ cm (¼ inch) thickness
  • Cut out the biscuits with a gingerbread cookie cutter and place on a baking tray
  • Use the off-cuts to make little buttons for the gingerbread men
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes
  • Cool down and decorate with sugar-free icing

Sugar-free Icing:

¼ cup cornstarch
¼ cup water
2 teaspoons honey
Pet-friendly food colouring


  • Place the cornstarch in a bowl, add only half of the ¼ cup of the water in small quantities with a teaspoon
  • Stir in the honey and then add the other half of the ¼ cup of water until you reach the desired consistency
  • At first the icing will seem a little thin before it hardens
  • Divide the icing into as many bowls as you would like to add colour to. Add a drop of colour and mix until you get the desired colour for your icing
  • Substitute cornstarch with rice flour or potato flour for a sensitive pooch. You may need to add a bit extra for hardening
