This recipe for dog treats combines the breath freshening and digestive attributes of mint with the antioxidants in blueberries. The molasses provides energy and calcium, while our fresh eggs provide essential fatty acids that improve a dog's coat and skin, as well as building strong eyes, bones and internal organs. The peanut butter adds lots of protein and dogs love the taste.
1 Cup Peanut Butter (preferably natural unsalted)
1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 Cup Old-Fashioned Oats
1/4 Cup Wheat Germ
4 Fresh Eggs
2 Tablespoons Blackstrap Molasses
1/4 Cup Chopped Dried Blueberries
1/4 Cup Chopped Fresh Mint
Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl with a wooden spoon or spatula until well combined. Roll out on a floured surface and cut into shapes of your choice. (I used a bone-shaped and a heart-shaped cookie cutter to make the treats, but you can use any shape you wish, even the rim of a small glass will work, or just cut the dough into squares.)
