½ cup fresh mint, very finely chopped
2 teaspoons baking soda
1¼ teaspoons cinnamon
¼ cup water
>>Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
>>Mix oats in food processor until finely chopped.
>>Add chopped oats, rice flour, mint, baking soda and cinnamon to large mixing bowl. Next add egg and water and mix thoroughly.
>>Knead with hands to form workable dough, adding rice flour or water as necessary.
>>Using rolling pin, roll out dough on wax paper about 1/4 in. to 1/2 in. thick. Cut into treats using cookie cutters. The smaller the treats, the shorter the baking time. (If you don’t have cookie cutters, try using a clean spice cap.)
>>Put treats on lightly greased cookie sheet and bake in oven for 8-12 minutes, or until lightly browned.
>>Store in refrigerator or airtight container. If kept in freezer, treats will stay good for 2-3 weeks.
