Apple Cinnamon Crispy Dog Treats

The key to a healthy diet is a daily serving of fruit…

…and there’s no fruit more tasty to a dog than apples. Combine them with cinnamon and you’ve got yourself a healthy, tasty treat your pup will drool over.

Apple Cinnamon Crispy Dog Treats


  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 cup applesauce unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 cup Whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine flour, rolled oats and applesauce into a large bowl.
  3. Beat egg in separate bowl, then slowly add to mixture.
  4. Stir the mixture until it forms into a dough. Use more flour if needed.
  5. Place small dollops of mixture onto baking sheet lined with cooking spray. The cookies can be placed close together, as the mixture doesn't expand much when cooked. Add optional beaten egg to the tops for color.
  6. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until they're crispy.
  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

Recipe Notes

While these crips might not look appetizing to the human eye, your pup is sure to love them. Be sure to keep him away from the oven during baking time as the smell of cinnamon might draw him a little too close to the oven.
