Easy Recipes for Your Pets

If your pet is a treat addict, like ours, then we're sure you know how many treats one furry friend can go through in a short amount of time! Those four legged friends are even more sneaky when they figure out they get treats for good behavior and then repeat the good behavior over and over and over. One way you can treat your pup to something special, is by making homemade treats! Here are a few recipes that are sure to make your pup go bananas!

DIY Doggy Breath Mints

Recipe from: Skinny Ms.

2 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats,
1/2 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh mint, finely chopped
1 large egg (see tip below for dogs with allergies to chicken products)
1/4 cup of water, plus 1 teaspoon
3 tablespoons coconut oil (unrefined extra-virgin is best)

Instructions:Preheat the oven to 325° F
Add oats to a blender and pulse to a flour like consistency. In a large bowl whisk together diced 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. 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 mints 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.
