Doggie Breath Mints

Has your pup ever had such bad breath that you couldn't even go near them? Spencer has. When his breath gets to the point where no one can stand it, I give him a homemade doggie breath mint. These smell AMAZING!
In just a short amount of time, your dog's breath will be smelling minty and fresh!
 
Ingredients:
• 2 1/2 cups of old-fashioned oats
• 1/2 cup of fresh parsley, finely chopped
• 1/2 cup of fresh mint, finely chopped
• 1 large egg
• 1/4 cup of water, plus 1 tablespoon (more water as needed to form the dough)
• 3 tablespoon melted coconut oil
 
Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 325° F
2. Add oats to a blender and pulse to a flour-like consistency. In a large bowl, whisk together the 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.
3. Using your hands or a rolling pin, flatten dough to about 1/8" thick. Using a cookie cutter or knife to cut out approximately 40 (1-inch mints) mints. Place mints about 1/4-inch a part on a parchment lined or non-stick cookie sheet. Bake 35-40 minutes, or until golden and crispy.
4. Allow mints to cool completely before serving. Store in an airtight container.
 
Tip: For dogs allergic to chicken products, substitute one large egg with 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce.
