Gingerbread Dog Biscuit Treat Recipe

'Tis the season for baking up homemade dog treats for your pup & your fur friends. Although you can't share human gingerbread cookies with your dog due to their high fat & sugar content, you can bake up a batch of dog friendly gingerbread cookies for the holidays. 

When creating our Gingerbread Dog Biscuit recipe, I choose three spices to give it that wonderful gingerbread taste. Besides it's yummy flavoring, there are many benefits that come in the spices that are included in our recipe. Let's take a look at the spices:

Ginger: This spice is filled with antioxidants and contains anti-inflammatory properties that can promote healthy blood circulation, ease bloating, and increase heart health. This powerful spice is a great addition in your pup's treats.

Turmeric: It's woody, earthy & spicy notes adds a nice layer of flavor to homemade dog biscuits. At the same time, this spice includes an active ingredient called curcumin. Curcumin has anti-inflammatory properties that support your dog’s immune health. Turmeric also has antioxidant benefits as well. 

Cinnamon: This delicious spice adds a sweet flavor to your pup's cookies. But its benefits are even sweeter. Cinnamon contains antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal properties. Also, it promotes heart health and can regulate blood sugar levels.  

As we choose these spices, I do want to note to avoid using Gingerbread Spice Mix as a substitute in our recipe, as Gingerbread Spice Mix often contains allspice & nutmeg which should be avoided in your pet's treats & diet.

For this recipe, I stamped the dough with an assortment of our Loki Doki Dog Holiday themed dog biscuit cutters. This new Gingerbread Dog Biscuit recipe was a perfect pick for this collection of cutters.
