Dog Days of Summer

The kids and I tried something different in the kitchen this week and made dog treats. Our dogs have some pretty foul breath so I decided a biscuit that included mint might help them out. The dogs liked them and it really did improve their breath.

Warning – if you leave these biscuits out on a cooling rack they resemble drop cookies and sometimes folks like Kitchen Dad and my niece pop things in their mouths without asking first. The result: very minty breath but not too impressed with the taste.


  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 2 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh mint

Cut up the mint.        

Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Drop spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet.

Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until solid in the middle.

Serve when cool to the touch and you will have very happy minty dogs!
