Breath Buster Dog Treats

I harvested some of our home grown vegetables on the weekend, its such a good feeling growing your own food! Spinach, lettuce, beans, mint and parsley... I then baked some Breath Buster treats for our two furry kids using the mint and parsley I picked.

These bikkies are cost effective and healthier (no preservatives or additives) than store treats.
The added bonus is that they absolutely love them!

 Here's the recipe:

Breath Buster Treats (makes between 24 - 48)
  • 2 cups wholewheat flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 Tbl. vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • One medium sized bowl
  • Rolling pin
  • Measuring cups
  • Wax cookie baking sheet 
  • Cookie cutter (I find a small one is better)
Preheat oven to 180 celsius. In a medium bowl, combine egg, oil, parsley, mint and milk; mix well.
Slowly stir in flour mixture and then hand mix until it becomes a firm dough.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface to about 15mm high, and cut out shapes using a cookie cutter (I have a small dog boned shape that I found on Ebay, that's ideal).
Place cut outs on a wax cookie baking sheet on a baking tray.
Bake for 25 mins. until firm.
Store cooled biscuits in tightly covered container in a tin or the refrigerator.
They keep for about a max of 2 weeks outside of the fridge.
