DIY: Honey Ham Dog Cookies

Here’s a fun dog treat recipe to try this weekend. I think people eat ham for Easter (according to the recent advertisements) so finding ham on sale is easy. Try using different shapes of cookie cutters – including making these into solid little training treats, by using a very small circular shape and stamping out tiny little ones. They’ll fit easily in your pocket and won’t stink up your jacket!

Not only is this recipe yummy, honey has some great added benefits for our dogs. Read more about the benefits for here.

1 1/2 cup Ham (cooked and shredded)
1/4 cup Honey
1/4 cup Butter
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
pinch Nutmeg
pinch Ginger
1/2 cup Wheat Germ
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour

– Preheat oven to 350
– In a bowl,  add all ingredients and mix until well combined.
– Knead dough into ball and roll onto a floured surface 1/4 inch thick. Cut with cookie cutter of your choice.
– Place on greased cookie sheet and bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until browned at the edges.
– Cool and refrigerate.

BAKING TIP: Brush the treats before baking with an egg wash for the shiny affect.
