Need a reason to spoil your pooch? If you do, then you may be interested to learn that tomorrow (23 February) is International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day. Dog biscuits are a simple treat that you can give your dog, and in the most part they are quite healthy for them to have. What is even better is that dog biscuits, much like people-biscuits are something that you can make yourself. Not sure where to start? Well, why not check out these amazing recipes?
Lola the Pitty Wild Rice and Chicken Bites
If you want to make sure that your dog has a filling, delicious and wholesome treat, then these are a great idea. They are simple to make and each treat is almost like a small dinner for your doggy. All you need to make these is 1 cup of mashed wild rice, 1 cup of shredded chicken, 3 tbs of rice flour, 1 egg and 1 tbs of fresh parsley. All the ingredients are mixed together in a bowl before you pop them in a muffin tin packing it neatly in. Bake them at 160 for 25 minutes and they will last around 3-5 days in the fridge.
Skinny M’s Doggie Breath Mints
Despite loving our doggies, sometimes even us owners can tire of their bad breath. This means that a doggy treat that is going to be tasty to them as well as help you by freshening their breath. These doggy breath mints that you can make yourself are a great cure for doggy breath problems.
To make them you need 2 and a half cups of old-fashioned oats, ½ cup of fresh parsley, ½ cup of fresh mint, 1 large egg, ¼ cup of water and 3 tbs of coconut oil.
You need a blender for this particular recipe. Blending the oats until they are like flour, you then need to whisk together the parsley, mint, egg, water and oil. Once the oat flour is ready you need to add this to the mix and knead it a few times before flattening it until it is about 1/8” thick. The mints should be cut out of this dough to about 1 inch across, it should make around 40 mints.
These need to be cooked at 150 for 35 minutes, which will mean they are golden and crispy ready to eat!
