Who wants their dog to have fresh minty breath and a full belly on Christmas morning? Say hello to our DIY peppermint dog treat recipe!

One of the most nostalgic things I love about the Christmas season is savoring a peppermint treat. I wish Coco could revel in the moment of candy cane bliss on Christmas – but they aren’t exactly dog friendly. That’s why I have created these little Puppermint Dog Treats (get it?!) for her to enjoy. They are grain free, packed with organic nutritious ingredients, and will also give her fresh minty breath.

Ever since she was just a pup she would always sniff out where anything mint was hidden, whether it be in a purse or backpack or wherever. It seems like just yesterday when she tore a hole through a backpack to get to the mint lip balm. The kid just loves mint, so I am excited she finally has minty dog treats of her own to enjoy. I hope your dogs love them too!

After all, a Christmas dog treat recipe that combines festive fun with fresh minty dog breath is a win-win we’d say!

Also, if you like this recipe, we think you’ll also love our Christmas bark for dogs! It’s just one of the many fab, healthy and easy recipes you’ll find in our dog treats recipe section.

Happy baking!

  • Preheat oven to 350˚F.
  • Combine ingredients together in a bowl and mix together until you form a ball. If mixture is too wet, add more coconut flour. If too dry add a little more water.
  • Rollout your dough and cut the treats using bite sized cookie cutters. Sprinkle with a little coconut flour to prevent from sticking.
  • Place your treats on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the oven for 15, flip and bake for another 15. Turn off and let set in the oven until crisp.
  • Makes approx. 20 treats (dependent on size of cutter). Let cool before giving to your pooch – Enjoy!

    I’m definitely planning on making these here in a few days. The pups need something to enjoy on Christmas too!

  2. This recipe looks fantastic!

    And your story is all too familiar – my St. Bernard, Cliff, is obsessed with my favourite mint chapstick. I get covered in slobbery puppy kisses every time I apply it.

    Do you think dried pure peppermint leaves, bought as organic pure mint tea, could be used as a substitute for fresh mint leaves? I live in remote northern Canada, 3 hours from a grocery store, so I don’t have access to fresh leaves.

    Please let me know your thoughts!

  3. These are the cutest and super simple to make! Thanks for sharing, these will definitely be in our future 🙂

    Hello i was pinterest and saw some of your dog/pup recipes and I just want to say it looks awesome and definitely trying it! I dont have my puppy yet but I will be getting her at the end of Jan. How old does a puppy have to be to actually eat these recipes?

    Hey there! I know this is a post from last year but I am hoping for a response. I tried making these today, but think I went wrong somewhere. It’s 2 cups of almond flour? Is there different types of almond flour? I only found one type at my grocery store and I found that it just crumbled no matter what I did. Not sure if this is normal. I tried adding more water which didn’t help then I tried adding more coconut flour which didn’t help. I’m very upset I was so looking forward to this. And I just wasted $30 in ingredients. What should almond flour be like? The one I got looked like almonds very finely gained down.

    Thank you
