Homemade Mint Buckwheat Dog Biscuit Recipe |

Things I like about these Mint-Parsley-Buckwheat dog treats:

  • The entire batch fits on one cookie sheet. (As you learned with my Peanut Butter Banana dog treats, I’m not a fan of rolling out dough for an hour.)
  • They help with stinky dog breath…’nuff said.
  • I have extra fresh parsley & mint to use for human recipes.

I was at a Pet Expo a few weekends ago with our friend Amaya and her SDiT Tater. We couldn’t help but stop by the homemade dog treat booth and one treat that caught my eye was a dog biscuit made with buckwheat flour.

I’ve honestly never baked with buckwheat flour (partially because I tried buckwheat pancakes one time and umm, yeah….), but I immediately knew I wanted to try and create my own version but of course didn’t have a recipe for one.

I played with the ingredients a little bit and initially tried to make it without the egg but it was too dry – so after a little trial and error I think I’ve perfected it! I hope your pups enjoy these as much as Lola & Rio.

I call these the dog's after dinner mints! The parsley and mint in these treats is great for helping with bad doggy breath!
Serves: 20-24
  • 1½ cups buckwheat flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)
  • 4 Tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh mint, finely chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon pure honey
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • water (approx. 1-3 tsp)
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, stir buckwheat flour, parsley and mint leaves together until combined
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil and honey.
  4. Pour olive oil-honey mixture into the flour and stir. Add egg and stir until well combined.
  5. Knead dough with hands to thoroughly mix the ingredients together. Add a teaspoon of water at a time to help the dough come together. This should take about 3-5 minutes.
  6. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out to approx. ¼" thick.
  7. Cut into desired shapes with cookie dough cutter.
  8. Place biscuits onto a nonstick baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
Store biscuits in an airtight container in the fridge to keep fresh.

This recipe yielded exactly 21 treats for me, using a 2″ cookie cutter.

They are a thin, crispy biscuit and are very easy to break into pieces.

I’ve been putting one on top of Lola & Rio’s dinner and they love it!
