These breath busting mint biscuits make awesome Christmas Dog Treats but I’m betting you’ll want to make them all year round. Your dogs will love them and they also make great gifts for all the canines on your shopping list.
Use a Christmas Tree cookie cutter or other fun shape to cut them out. Not only is the mint great holiday flavor, it helps to keep your dog’s breath fresh, and aids in digestion!
Mutt Mint Christmas Trees
- 2 Tablespoons Chopped Mint Leaves (Can also use parsley)
- 3/4 Cup Skim milk
- 1 Egg
- 1 Tablespoon Honey
- 3 Tablespoons Canola Oil
- 2 Tablespoons Wheat germ
- 1 Tablespoon Brewers Yeast
- 1 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
Add milk, egg, honey, oil, and mint to large mixing bowl and whisk together. Add wheat germ and brewers yeast and stir together until well blended. Mix in wheat flour 1/4 cup at a time until stiff dough forms.
Place on floured surface and roll to desired thickness. Cut out using Christmas Tree cookie cutter. Bake at 300 degrees. If rolled to 3/8″ baking time is 30 to 35 minutes..or until a golden brown.
Tip: After shutting off the oven I leave the dog biscuits in the oven for a couple hours to make sure they are completely dry and crunchy. Then they can be stored for a long time with out worrying about spoilage.
Variation: Use a carob coating to create a classic chocolate(carob)/mint combination. Chocolate is dangerous for dogs but carob is a safe alternative. You can drizzle the carob in a zig zag design on the trees or dip one side of the trees in the carob. Allow coating to dry completely before storing.
