St Patty’s is coming soon, and we thought what better way to celebrate than with a holiday-themed recipe for pups? The green color from this recipe is not from artificial dyes but rather from good-for-you kale, mint and parsley. Do we smell fresher breath already? 

We love that this recipe from My Dog’s Breakfast has both a wheat and gluten-free recipe for dogs who have sensitive stomachs or dietary restrictions. Check out the full recipe below.

 Ingredients: Gluten free Puppermints

2 1/2 cups All Purpose Gluten Free Flour
1 cup parsley
1 cup kale
1/2 cup mint
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup canola oil
1 TBS honey
1TSP salt

 

Ingredients: Wheat Puppermints
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup wheat germ
1 cup parsley
1/2 cup kale
1/2 cup mint
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup canola oil
1 TBS honey
1 tsp salt

Directions

Whiz your parsley, mint, kale and water in your blender or whatever you have that will do the trick. Add to large mixing bowl. Add the canola oil, honey, salt and stir. Then slowly add the dry ingredients and mix together, then knead a little bit until dough ball forms. Some flour mixtures make this a bit more crumbly, just add small amounts of water until you’re happy with the texture. This should be a moist dough so you will need to sprinkle a good amount of gf flour to roll out. Roll out dough to about 1/4″ to 1/2″ thickness. I used a (proper measuring) teaspoon to make them round. After you make the cut out, you can just smoosh them into the teaspoon if you want make them rounder on the top (like you see in the picture).

Bake at 250 degrees for 30-40 minutes. I like to cook them at a low temp because I find that natural colours stay stronger this way.

Let us know if you make these lucky-green dog treats!
