Welcome back to Zoe’s Best! Usually Zoe is sitting in her favourite recliner watching me bake, but these cinnamon apple homemade dog treats had Zoe waiting in the kitchen to try some.
This is another super easy recipe that smells sweet and tantalizing. Throw it in the bowl and mix it, cut the cookies out, brush them and bake them. The most time-consuming thing is cutting out the tiny cookies and putting them on the baking sheet, but to see my dog enjoy a healthier cookie that I’ve made myself, its worth it.
For those of you who need to find cookie cutters in Canada, Bulk Barn is the place to go. They have 3 sizes including the super small ones for those with little breed dogs. The small ones are .79 cents each and had over 25 different shapes to choose from.
Again these cinnamon apple homemade dog treats have seemed to settle well with her sensitive stomach and she can have at least four in a day. Today she did get four cookies while posing and being so patient while I took pictures.
These cookies have a lovely scent of cinnamon and apple pie that will have your house smelling wonderful, and your dogs begging for more.
I hope your dogs love these as much as Zoe has.
These are an irresistible cinnamon apple treat when you want to spoil your dog.
- 3/4 cup Unsweetened Applesauce
- 1 egg yolk only (save the white for later)
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 egg white
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
1) Mix the applesauce,egg yolk, honey, cinnamon and vanilla extract.
2) Add in the flour and mix until well combined.
3) The dough will be a bit sticky so roll it out onto a well floured surface and cut out what ever shapes you want for the cookies, making the dough about 1/8 inch thick.
4) Place all cut shapes onto parchment paper or non stick pan.
4) Re-roll the dough until all the dough is used up.
5) Mix the egg white and the 1/4 tsp of cinnamon very well in a separate small bowl.
6) Brush the tops of each cookie with the egg white mixture before baking.
7) Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. They are done when the tops start to lightly brown. Let cool and dry for 1 to 2 hours for crunchy cookies.
Note: My cookies were very small (about 1.5 inch long biscuits) so they were totally cooked in the 20 minutes. If you make larger cookies or thicker they will take longer to bake.
