Sweets for My Sweet: Crunchy Honey Cinnamon Dog Biscuits

Warning:  This is on the cusp of being wayyy too much sharing, so if you’re feeling uncomfortable at any time, please skip to the dog biscuit recipe.  :)   The past few days, I’ve been out of sorts.  Mopey, stressed, just plain hard to be around.  That’s fine.  We all go through brief periods when the world isn’t all rainbows and unicorns, right?  Unfortunately, my boy’s been picking up on all my negative energy and is now in a funk of his own.  Soooo….to cheer him up, I whipped up a batch of these crispy, crunchy dog biscuits.  Made with honey, vanilla and cinnamon, they’re sorta sweet, but not too over-the-top.

Crunchy Honey Cinnamon Dog Biscuits


1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup honey

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg

2 tablespoons milk

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


1.  Preheat your oven to 375 and lightly grease a couple of baking sheets.

2.  In a large mixing bowl, add the oil, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, milk and egg.  Once you’ve got that mixed, stir in the flour and baking powder.  Mix until a dough forms.

3.  On a lightly floured surface, dump out the contents of the bowl and then knead it until all of the ingredients are incorporated and it can be spread using a rolling pin.  Roll the dough out to about a 1/4″ thickness and then either cut using cookie cutters or a pizza cutter.

4.  Place the uncooked biscuits on your baking sheets and bake for 13-15 minutes.

  • Store at room temperature in an airtight container

    Ooohhh…Can’t wait to see what she comes up with! I’ll be on the lookout for that one!

    Just stumbled across this site and can’t wait to try this recipe! I love cooking for my dog and these treats are going to be a steal compared to the Four Dogs Bakery treats I usually buy for her, considering I have all of the ingredients on hand!

    Okay, so I just made these biscuits and I’m waiting for the third batch to come out of the oven. What I learned from the first batch was to move the baking pan to the top rack of the oven, bake on parchment lined baking sheets, and definitely cook only about 10-12 minutes for two inch biscuits. Over-baking causes the flavor to be practically non-existent (yes I tasted them!) and cooking on a greased pan lower inthe oven causes the bottoms to burn. Happy baking!

      Don’t feel bad, as long as I like everything going in the treat, I taste test them also. That way I know if I need to add more flavoring for him. My pup is kind of picky and wont eat it if the flavoring is not kind of strong. If he wont eat them though I just give them to friends that have dogs. Now they all ask me to make them some sometimes. lol

    Wish i’d read Shantae’s comment before I made my first batch. 13-15 minutes is way too long. Burnt my first batch black at 13 minutes. My second batch came out fine baked for only 9 minutes.

  8. Matt Nudi says:

    Great recipe! Super easy to make and my dog loved them. Only took a few minutes for prep time, thanks!

  9. DebbyAnn says:

    I just made these and my dogs were drooling before they came out of the oven. My Bensenji is very picky and he was the first to ask for seconds. I am babysitting my Mom’s little dogs and they even got excited about the treats. Had to mix up several batches because with 6 beautiful eyes begging for more I just couldn’t resist. These are easy to make and all of the dogs just loved them. The cats even got in on the act and ate some too! I sure am glad I stumbled across this site and my animal family is too. Thanks for the excellent treats. Oh by the way, I always taste the treats before I give them to my babies, don’t want to give them something I wouldn’t eat.
