DIY Doggie Breath Mints Recipe
- 2 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup parsley, dried
- ¼ cup mint, dried
- 1 large egg (see tip below for dogs with allergies to chicken products)
- 1/2 cup of water, plus 1 tablespoon (more water as needed to form the dough)
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
Preheat the oven to 325° F
Add oats to a blender and pulse to a flour like consistency. In a large bowl whisk together parsley and mint, egg, water, and oil. Add oat flour and stir to combine. Knead dough a few times then turn out onto a lightly floured surface.
Using your hands or a rolling pin, flatten dough to about 1/8″ thick. Using a cookie cutter or knife cut out approximately 40 (1-inch mints) mints. (We made a few shaped like teapots just for fun.) Place mints about 1/4-inch apart on a parchment lined or non-stick cookie sheet. Bake 35-40 minutes, or until golden and crispy.
Allow biscuits to cool completely before serving. Store in an airtight container.
Tip: For dogs with allergies to chicken products, substitute one large egg with 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce.
