Molasses Dog Treats

If you read my Doggie Birthday Cake post then you know about Z’s love of molasses. I started making these molasses dog treats after I realized how much he liked the flavor. I make them pretty small and carry a handful when we’re out walking or at the dog park.

Every time I reach for Z’s treat jar he gets excited, knowing that he’s going for a walk or to the park. This jar is never empty. I make him a new batch of molasses dog treats about every two-three weeks.

I’m not entirely sure when I started calling these treats Z’s Noms. It just happened over time and now Z knows what it means when I ask if he wants some Noms. Kind of like when I started calling him ‘Bean.’

There are only five ingredients in these treats and they come together very quickly. Start by mixing everything in a large mixing bowl or standing mixer until it becomes a dough. The dough will then need rolled out to a ¼” thickness before being cut into treats. You will need a good amount of flour on your rolling surface and on the rolling pin or the dough will stick like crazy.

I used to use tiny circle and square cookie cutters to cut out the molasses dog treats, but it became so time consuming and I was constantly pushing the cut dough out of the cutter. I gave up on cookie cutters and just use a knife to cut the dough into small square treats now. If you want to make large treats a cookie cutter would definitely work though.

Spread out the treats on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet. I always use parchment paper on my cookie sheets so I have less dishes to do. Having a small kitchen really makes doing the dishes a pain. These cookies bake for about 20 minutes at 350º.

Recipe Notes

  • You can use any kind of flour that you would like, it doesn't need to be Brown Rice. I tend to avoid using all purpose flour in Z's treats though.
  • These treats should stay fresh for about 3-4 weeks in an airtight container.
