Crunchy Tuna Cat Treats

1 (5 ounce) can tuna, no salt added and packed in water, drained

1 cup oat flour*

1 large egg

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 heaping tablespoon dried catnip

Oat Flour: Simply grind old-fashioned oats in a spice grinder (or a super clean coffee grinder) until it is transformed into a light powder.

1. Place a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
2. In the bowl of a food processor fitted with a blade attachment, combine drained tuna, oat flour, egg, olive oil and catnip. Blend until mixture is smooth. It will be thick but pliable and not terribly sticky.
3. Roll dough into 1/2 teaspoon balls and place on prepared cookie sheet. Use a skewer to press an X-shape into each cookie ball.
4. Bake cookies for 10 to 12 minutes until they are dried on top and slightly browned. Allow to cool completely before offering to your kitty.
5. Place treats in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to seven days.

Halloweenie Doggie Treats

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

 2 large eggs

 2/3 cup pumpkin puree, canned or fresh

3 tbsp peanut butter

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. 
  2. Place all ingredients in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix on medium for about a minute or until the dough looks like a bunch of little dough balls. If you pinch a piece and it crumbles, add a little water. If it’s really sticky, it’s too wet and you’ll need to add a little flour.
  3.  Gather the dough together and form into a ball. Place on a lightly floured work surface and roll it out to about 1/4-inch thickness.
  4.  You can either use a cookie cutter to cut out cute shapes or use a knife to cut squares or strips. 
  5.  Place the cookies on a baking sheet. They can be crowded pretty close together since they don’t expand much. 
  6. Bake 15-20 minutes for softer treats or 30 minutes for hard treats  Let cool completely. Makes 100+ 1-inch heart-shaped dog treats.
  7.  Soft treats will last no more than a few days on the counter, perhaps a week in the refrigerator. You can try freezing them for longer storage.

  1. hi Jessica, I am impressed by two of your post, that is until I have seen the others, I am impressed by (1)kids and babies and(2)pets. Cats are my favorites as they are amusing and gives a sense of calm. Babies you at times wish they would stay babies, but of course they cant. Keep up the good work.
