Ginger dog biscuits

Ginger Dog biscuits

Of the many food enhancers I use in my

cooking, ginger is one of my top 3 herbs.

Because of its many benefits, I even use

ginger when preparing my dogs’ meals.

Ginger is commonly used in many Chinese

dishes; it’s a must-have for mothers during

her confinement period. It’s said that ginger

helps get rid of excess wind/gas in the

stomach. For Indians, they too use it on milk

tea as a way to ease digestion after

consuming spicy food.

Since dogs don’t usually chew their food,

they gobble; they’re likely to get bloating

stomach. Very common on larger breeds

when they’re given one large portion of food

at one go. One of the ways to combat this is

to have ginger in their diet. This recipe is so

delicious; I occasionally steal my dogs’

cookies when they aren’t looking. :X

Serving: 2 to 3 dozens Ginger Bread Bones


2 cups of all purpose flour
1 cup of whole wheat flour
½ cup of molasses
½ cup of water
A quarter cup of canola oil
2 tablespoons of ground ginger
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon of ground cloves

Preheat oven to 350°.
Mix all the ingredients thoroughly in a large

Roll out dough on floured baking board to

about 5mm thick.
Using a dog bone shape cookie cutter to cut

as many shapes until the dough is all used

Place cut dough on ungreased foiled baking

Bake the cookies for 30 minutes.
Allow it to cool for at least 2 hours before

Special Notes:

For added benefit, punch holes on both ends

of the cookie bone with thick (bubble tea)

straw before baking. Once they’re baked, put

a thin slice of raw carrot through each hole.

They way, your dog will have some fiber in

his diet.
