Christmas Treat Recipe: Christmas Biscuits
Recipe & article by: Proud Dog Mom
As you start crafting your Christmas day menu, don’t forget to include a little something special for your canine kids. Since nothing says Christmas quite like a batch of freshly baked cookies, I’m dishing up some simple yet festive dog-approved biscuits!
A Few Notable Dog Biscuit Ingredients
Flours – These treats are made with both oat flour and coconut flour.
Strawberries – This popular fruit is rich in antioxidants that help fight free-radicals in the body, warding off various illnesses.
Mint Leaves – In moderation, mint is great for your pup’s breath and digestive health. According to the Continental Kennel Club, wild mint, spearmint, and peppermint are all non-toxic to dogs. The only species that you must watch out for is English pennyroyal (Mentha pulegium).
1 1/2 cups oat flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup water
1 larger egg
2 tbsp coconut oil
Chopped mint leaves
Preheat oven to 350° F and lin two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl whisk flours.
Add remaining ingredients and mix together with a spoon until you're left with crumbly bits.
With your hands, knead dough until you have a dough ball.
Sandwich dough ball between two sheets of parchment paper and roll flat (about 1/4" thick) with a rolling pin.
Bake for 25-30 minutes.
Let cool on wire rack.
