Tasty treats for your cat (or your dog)!
We have promised you that we will share cat treat recipes, so that even though we do not yet have an Advent Calendar for cats, your feline friend is not left behind this Holiday season. Here are two cookie recipes that your cat will LOVE.
These treats can also be given to dogs, if you have a big furry family!
Salmon and cheddar cookies
– 2 big cans of salmon
– ½ cup of cheddar (mild or strong)
– 3 eggs
– 2 cups of brown rice flour
– 1 tablespoon of baking powder
– approximately ½ cup of water
Whisk the eggs in a big bowl, and add all other ingredients except the water.
Mix until well blended.
Add water gradually until the mix turns into soft and humid dough.
Pour the mix between sheets of waxed paper, and roll out the dough so that it has the thickness you want for your cookies.
Cut dough with a small cookie cutter, and place the cookies on a greased cookie pan. Keep all the extra dough, and repeat the last two steps until all the dough has been used.
Bake at 350F for about 20 to 30 minutes depending on the cookie size and your oven. The cookies should be slightly brown and crispy. Let them cool down before feeding them to your pet.
– using canned tuna instead of canned salmon
– using any other kind of firm cheese instead of cheddar
– using whole wheat flour if your cat or your dog can digest gluten easily.
One satisfied tested who could not wait for the smaller treats!!
Grounded meat and sweet potato cookies
– 500g of grounded meat (beef, chicken, turkey, veal, etc.)
– 1 big sweet potato
– 1 big egg
– 5 tablespoons of rolled oats or instant oatmeal
Peal, cut and boil the sweet potato before mashing it in a big bowl.
Add the grounded meat.
Add the whisked egg, and then the rolled oats into the bowl.
Pour the mix between sheets of waxed paper, and press so that the cookies are dense enough.
Cut the dough with a cookie cutter, and place the cookies on a greased cookie pan. Repeat until you have used all your mix.
Bake at 350F for about 30 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown. These cookies will remain soft and chewy.
– picking any other grounded meat options. Turkey and chicken are lower in fats, which make them better options for pets that need to watch their weight.
These cookies can be refrigerated for approximately two weeks, or they can be frozen.
