There are many dog treats available in the aisles of pet stores but just as with normal pet foods, we usually don't really know if what's in them is good for our dogs or what all these weird ingredients are to begin with. You can of course buy holistic, organic, whole-food dog treats but they not cheap and everyone can or wants to afford that. So, here is a simple, low-cost, easy alternative for a yummy, healthy dog cookie your furry friend will love—and it even makes their breath minty. Let's bake some dog biscuits (use organic ingredients if you can).
- 2 cups brown rice flour
- 1 large egg, slightly beaten
- 3 tablespoons canola oil
- ½ cup chopped parsley
- ½ chopped, fresh mint
- ⅔ cup milk
- ½ tablespoon vanilla extract
- Preheat the oven to 400 degree
- In a medium bowl, combine vanilla, egg, oil, parsley and mint; mix well
- Slowly stir in flour, then add enough milk to make a dough with the consistency of drop biscuits
- Drop heaping tablespoons of dough about 1 inch (important) apart onto greased baking sheets
- Bake 15 minutes or until firm
- Store cooled biscuits in tightly covered container in refrigerator
