Cinnamon Roll-Overs Dog Treats
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk (or water if your pup is lactose intolerant)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees (F). Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. 

  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.

  3. Get a small bowl and stir together the milk (or water), egg, and oil. Add this to the dry ingredients and mix gently, just until it forms a soft dough.

  4. On a lightly floured surface, pat the dough into a rectangle measuring about 9- by 12-inches. 

  5. Drizzle the dough with honey and sprinkle on the cinnamon and nuts, then roll up the dough, starting at the long edge, and pinch the edge to seal it.

  6. Using a sharp knife, cut the log into half-inch-thick slices and place them, cut side down, on the cookie sheet. If the knife gets sticky, dip it in water. 

  7. Bake the Roll-Overs for fifteen minutes. (I check at twelve to make sure they're not burning.)


You can make an easy cream cheese "frosting" for these by mixing about four ounces of cream cheese and milk or water. Add just enough liquid to thin out the cheese. You can also make a bunch of these at one time and freeze them. Socrates thinks they taste just as good thawed!
