Ingredients

  • 2 C oatmeal (pulverized)
  • 2 C whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon of Swanson Premium Activated Charcoal
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/3 C peanut butter
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup packed fresh mint
  • 1/2 cup packed fresh Italian parsley
  • 1 cup chicken broth or water
  • Swanson GreenFoods Liquid Chlorophyll

Step by Step

  1. Line baking sheet with parchment (I used a baking mat).
  2. Combine charcoal with flour and set aside.
    You’ll find brown rice flour in a lot of pet treat and pet food recipes.
    Many dogs are sensitive to wheat/wheat gluten and brown rice flour is easier for them to digest. Activated charcoal is carbon that has been treated with oxygen and is able to absorb a wide range of impurities.  This can be ordered in bulk on Amazon.
  3. Put parsley, mint, oil and 1/4 cup of broth or water into food processor.
  4. Process until very chopped, like pesto, then add chlorophyll.
    Chlorophyll helps freshen breath both by eliminating odors in the mouth and by promoting a healthy digestive tract—poor digestion being a primary reason for bad breath. The recipe I followed said 3-4 droppers-full, but since my bottle didn’t have a dropper, I guessed and used a generous teaspoon.
    Pulse a few times to mix.
  5. Add this to the flour/charcoal and mix well.
  6. Beat egg lightly and mix in.
  7. Knead, adding remainder of water or broth until you have a very sticky (yet grainy) dough ball.
  8. Dust the work surface with more rice flour—makes your life easier and gives the treats extra crunch.
  9. The recipe said to knead dough until an even green color.
  10. My dough was decidedly NOT green so I just kneaded until everything seemed evenly combined.
  11. Roll out to about 1/4 inch thick, or whatever thickness you prefer, adding flour as needed.
  12. Cut out with your favorite shapes.
  13. Bake for 45 minutes at 300º
  14. Flip and bake for 30 more minutes, then turn oven off.  Leave door closed
  15. Let rest another hour, then remove from oven
  16. Cool and store in an air-tight container in the fridge.
