If you saw my video Dog eats ENTIRE gingerbread house! (Home-Cooked Vs. $1000 inspired we also try cutting soap) or my last video Taking him back to the dog shelter then you know how much I love baking for dogs. So getting the opportunity to bake in this video Homeless Senior Dog Tries a Cookie for the First Time - Amazing Reaction to Holiday Dog Cookie really makes me smile. Senior rescue dogs need all of the help the can get and this special Chow Chow dog needs our help. Stewart or Grandpa Stewart as we are calling him has been neglected and forgot but we aim to change that! Enjoy this amazing story where love is shown for a special senior dog. Because it shouldn't matter if it is a puppy or a senior dog, every dog deserves their Dog's Day Out.

My Gingerbread Dog Treat Recipe for DIY a Dog Cookie :

Oat Flour - 1 ¾ cup

Rice Flour - 1 cup packed tightly

Potato Starch - ½ cup packed tightly

Egg - 1

Cinnamon - 1/4 cup packed

Ginger - 4 tbsp

Applesauce - 3 tbsp

Water (room temp) - ¾ cup

Honey - ¼ cup

Molasses - 2.5 tbsp

Oil - ¼ cup

At least one very good pupper to taste test


1. Set your oven at 325 degrees.

2. Combine all dry ingredients and set aside (Oat Flour, Rice Flour, Potato Starch, Ginger, and Cinnamon).

3. Whisk together the wet ingredients until well incorporated (Applesauce, Water, Honey, Egg and Oil).

4. Fold the wet into the dry with a spatula until the ingredients begin the come together. Then we encourage you to finish finish folding with your hands until the desired consistency is achieved! It should be soft to the touch but not sticky or wet.


1. Using a rolling pin (or if you don’t have one, think something similar in shape like a wine bottle), roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thick. If the dough is sticking to the rolling pin, placing a sheet of seran wrap over the dough to roll it out will help.

2. Now cut using the desired cookie cutter shape. We use a gingerbread person in two sizes, one for larger pups and one for smaller dogs.

3. Using a bench scraper, lift the gingerbread off the table and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. No need to spray the sheet. You don't need to leave much space in between the cookies, because they won't expand very much. So feel free to fill your pan with gingerbread closely placed together.

4. Bake at 325 for 20 minutes, flip over halfway through to make sure they are baked evenly.

5. Let the gingerbread cookies cool.


Now here’s where you can make these dog gingerbread cookies your own. You can decorate them however you and your pup would like!

Some options: peanut butter spread, carob icing, melted yogurt chips or even just plain.

Of course at The Dog Bakery, we love to decorate all our cookies, so we usually combine carob and vanilla or a yogurt based drizzle for that finishing touch.

Taste Test

And then comes the part your dog has been waiting for, the taste test! We hope your pup will enjoy the cookies as much as our bakery pups. And from our family to yours, happy holidays!
