Dog Treats – DIY

The galley isn’t just for people food . . . there are good boat dogs out there who like homemade  treats, too!  Actually, in some places it’s hard to buy dog treats and in others it’s difficult to know what’s really in them.  Reader Karla Vialle to the rescue (she also wrote me about some storage improvements they made)!

And yes, I’m pretty fond of boat dogs.  That’s Karla’s dog Sadie aboard their boat Aria.

And so here’s the recipe:

3 cups flour

1/2 cup honey or molasses

1/2 cup oil

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ginger

Mix all together. Press into a greased cookie sheet and bake at 400° F. for 20 minutes.

Karla has used soy and almond flour instead of wheat flour with good results, and she notes that Sadie likes more spice than in the original recipe.

The first time she made them, Karla rolled out the dough and used cute little heart and bone cookie cutters.  While cute, she says it was a pain and wasted dough so now she just presses it onto the pan and breaks the “big cookie” into smaller pieces.  And Sadie loves them!

And while I try to test out all recipes that I post here on TBG, I felt that there really was someone in the family much better suited to the role of taste-tester than either Dave or I.  Yes, they have the Paz seal of approval!
