Christmas DIY: ‘Puppermint’ Dog Treats
Who wants their dog to have fresh minty breath and a full belly on Christmas morning? Say hello to our DIY peppermint dog treat recipe!
One of the most nostalgic things I love about the Christmas season is savoring a peppermint treat. I wish Coco could revel in the moment of candy cane bliss on Christmas – but they aren’t exactly dog friendly. That’s why I have created these little Puppermint Dog Treats (get it?!) for her to enjoy. They are grain free, packed with organic nutritious ingredients, and will also give her fresh minty breath.
Ever since she was just a pup she would always sniff out where anything mint was hidden, whether it be in a purse or backpack or wherever. It seems like just yesterday when she tore a hole through a backpack to get to the mint lip balm. The kid just loves mint, so I am excited she finally has minty dog treats of her own to enjoy. I hope your dogs love them too!
2 Cups Almond Flour
4 TBSP Coconut Flour
1 TBSP Coconut Oil
3/4 Cup Water
4 TBSP Finely Chopped Fresh Mint
- Preheat oven to 350˚F.
- Combine ingredients together in a bowl and mix together until you form a ball. If mixture is too wet, add more coconut flour. If too dry add a little more water.
- Rollout your dough and cut the treats using bite sized cookie cutters. Sprinkle with a little coconut flour to prevent from sticking.
- Place your treats on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the oven for 15, flip and bake for another 15. Turn off and let set in the oven until crisp.
- Makes approx. 20 treats (dependent on size of cutter). Let cool before giving to your pooch – Enjoy!
