Gingerbread Dog Treat Recipe

I’m no expert at baking but I do love it! So this festive season I told myself that I would create my very own recipe (for the dogs of course!). One of my favourite festive treats is gingerbread but this contains the spice nutmeg which is harmful for dogs. Therefore, I came up with a nutmeg-free recipe for the dogs so they could enjoy a Christmassy treat too!

Max and Oscar were pawfect little helpers, always ready to lick the spoon!


2 teaspoons of ground ginger

1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

50g of organic coconut flour

75g wholemeal flour

1 tablespoon of raw, organic honey

50g of dog-safe peanut butter

2 eggs

2 teaspoons of water (add more or less if needed)


1. Pour the coconut flour and sieved wholemeal flour into a bowl and mix in the spices.

2. Add the honey, peanut butter and eggs. Mix and add water if needed until combined

3. Form the dough into a ball it and place it on a clean surface

4. Wrap the dough in cling film and place in the fridge for 10 minutes

5. Take the dough out of the fridge and roll it out on a clean surface until it’s flat and about 3mm thick

6. Cut the dough with gingerbread man cutters and place them on a baking tray

7. Put them in the oven for 10 minutes at 180°C / 350°F / Gas Mark 4 until golden brown and hard (remember that your oven may be different)

8. Leave to cool and then let your pups enjoy a tasty Christmas treat!

I’m so happy with how this recipe turned out, I hope it works out for you too if you use it. Let me know as I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Thanks for reading,
