30g milled flaxseed 200g oat flour
1 cup chopped fresh parsley 1 egg
125ml chicken or turkey stock

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius


  • Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl, including the parsley

  • Add the chicken or turkey stock and egg

  • Knead into a dough and roll it out to about 3-5mm thick (if the dough is a bit sticky add a little more flour)

  • Cut individual bites with a festive cookie cutter

  • Place on baking paper and pop in the oven for 30 minutes or until they are golden brown

  • Turn the oven off and allow the treats to cool completely whilst inside the oven before removing

These treats will stay fresh for three days in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator. They can also be stored in the freezer for up to three months. As treats, these should only make up a small part of a dog’s diet.

Hint – parsley is often used as a breath freshener or to sooth a dog’s stomach.
