Mint has plenty of health benefits for humans. Several scientific studies support using peppermint to calm the human digestive system.
But the fresh-tasting herb is commonly used as a supplement for dogs to help alleviate different ailments—such as flatulence, irritable bowl syndrome, and nausea.
Be aware that herbs have medicinal properties that can interact with medications and other herbs. For this reason, care should be taken when including any herb into the diet of dogs with underlying medical conditions.
- 1 ¼ cup of organic oat flour*
- ¼ cup finely chopped fresh mint leaves
- 4 rounded tsp coconut oil
- 2 eggs
* You can buy oat flour but I prefer to make my own. It’s really easy and much cheaper than store bought. To make your own oat powder simply place whole oats into the bowl of you food processor and grind until the oats make a finely ground powder.
Set the temperature of your oven to 350°F and let it heat.
Place all the ingredients in a bowl. Get your hands in there and squeeze and knead it together, making sure there are no large coconut oil lumps. The dough should be slightly wet when thoroughly mixed.
Roll the mixture into individual balls (roughly the size of a small walnut), and place on a cookie sheet.
Flatten the balls with a fork and place them in the oven
Bake until the surface of the cookies is golden brown, around 20 minutes.
Remove to a cooling rack.
