For Lola

I like to think that anyone who reads my blog regularly knows how much I adore my dog, Lola.

She’s my buddy. I take her for rides in my truck, walk her, cuddle her, and talk to her. She has me wrapped around her finger. Or paw? Or leash?

Whatever the case, I decided to take my love to a whole new level. I made Lola homemade dog treats!

Honey Cinnamon Dog Treats
Ingredients:
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 large egg
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl stir together milk, oil and egg. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and stir until just combined.
3. On a lightly floured surface, roll or pat the dough into a rectangle that measures roughly 8×14-inches. Cut the dough into small shapes with a cookie cutter, biscuit cutter, or with the rim of a glass.
4. Place cookies about 1/4 inch apart on baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes. This recipe makes about two dozen biscuits. I advise storing them in a sealed container in the freezer.

  1. Is it odd that I’m slightly jealous of your dog seriously. Your baking and cooking for her is so awesome! I can only imagine how much she liked them considering your people food always looks fabulous.

  2. Aww, too sweet! I always love your you + Lola posts, I can tell you love your doggy! Hope my adoption plans go through this week–then I’ll have a fuzzy buddy to try out these homemade treats on!
