Peppermint Holidog Christmas Dog Treat Recipe

It’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas! I’ve got a new recipe, hot out of the oven and just in time for the holidogs! Spread the joy of the season with this Peppermint Holidog Christmas Dog Treat Recipe. Perfect for parties and gifts (for dogs only, of course), this treat features a hint of peppermint. I’ve used the extract for my cookies, but feel free to use the fresh stuff. Peppermint is safe for your dog to eat and is believed to be beneficial in treating stomach problems.

Makes about 25 medium-sized cookies


3 cups whole wheat flour

1 cup water

1 tsp molasses

2 Tbs peanut butter

2 Tbs olive oil

1 tsp peppermint extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix flour, molasses, peanut butter, water, olive oil and peppermint extract until smooth.
  3. Kneed flour on a floured surface and roll out to ¼ inch thickness. Cut with festive cookie cutters and place on non-stick cookie sheets.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Store treats in a sealed container and refrigerate or freeze.
