Fresh Breath Dog Cookies [RECIPE]

If your dog has bad breath, this is the recipe for you! These allergy-friendly cookies are made with superfood ingredients that help freshen breath and prevent microbial buildup. (Yes, please!) 

While these treats aren't a replacement for brushing your pup's teeth, they're a great way to incorporate healthy whole foods at snacktime and make those doggie kisses minty-fresh. Let's get cookin'!

  • 2 ¾ cup gluten-free oat flour
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 apple, peeled and finely chopped
  • 4 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ cup + 1 Tbsp water


  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Chop the parsley, mint, and apple.
  3. Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth.
  4. Use a spoon to drop the dough onto the baking sheet in 1-inch rounds. Press each cookie down to flatten it.
  5. Bake 12-15 minutes, or until slightly brown.
  6. Let cool, then treat your patiently-waiting pup!

Be sure to introduce any new food slowly into your dog's diet. Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container for 2-3 days.
