 Ingredients for Gingerbread Cookies for Dogs

  • 3 cups gluten free flour (or flour of your choice)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup coconut cooking oil
  • 1/2 cup molasses

Directions for Gingerbread Cookies for Dogs

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, ginger and cinnamon.  Create a well in the center and add remaining ingredients.  Mix together until you form a firm dough.  If it's too crumble, add a bit of water.  Place dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour.


Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.  Roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thick and cut into shapes.  Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.  If you want your cookies to be extra crunchy, turn off the oven and leave them inside for a few hours.

Once the cookies are cooled, you can decorate them as you choose!  We used candy melts to do a bit of decorating on ours.
