What do you give the two greatest dogs and cats on the planet for Valentines Day?? Why cookies of course. Only the kind meant for canines and felines that is. I wanted to make them something really healthy and have been digging (no pun intended) around the internet to find some really good recipes.
Got this recipe from the poop dot com….(yes. www.thepoop.com) I kid you not, do you think I could make this stuff up? They have a long list of home made items for your pets and most of the ingredients you have right in your cupboard. Whadda Heeee Whaadda Heeee! Go for it. They will not stop kissing you! And that’s a very good thing!
We used Salmon instead of Tuna, but no one is complaining!!
Wheat Free Tuna Biscuits
1 cup yellow corn meal or 1 1/4 cup corn flour
1 cup oatmeal
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 small can tuna in oil, undrained
1/3 cup water
In a food processor, grind oatmeal until fine. Set aside in a small bowl. Grind the can of tuna in the food process along with the water, then add the rest of the ingredients. Pulse until mixture forma a ball, generally 2 -3 minutes. Place on floured surface until it forms a soft ball of dough. Roll out to a 1/8′- 1/4″ thickness. Cut out into shapes. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake at 350˚for 20-25 minutes. Cool completely before giving them to Fido!!
Sweet, comic Valentine, you make me smile with my heart!! ;-)
You’re looks, they are laughable………so un-photographable…..
But you’re my favorite work of art!!
Being that I used Wild Alaskan Salmon (super healthy for your cats and dogs……it was Sasha’s caviar!) and it was not packed in tuna, I topped off the can with olive oil before mixing in the processor to get an idea of how much oil should have been packed in there. My guess is that is was about two tablespoons of oil. And into the cuisinart it went. The mixture was very dry, and I wrapped it in plastic and placed in the fridge overnight. You do not need to do this step, and it wasn’t effective. So, moving right along, it was still very crumbly when rolling out as you can tell, but I kept just playing with it to work. I will make this recipe again with the intended can of tuna and see if it is just as dry.
Now the funny part of this recipe was that the dogs are never….never….NEVER underneath my feet the whole time I am cooking and these smelled so much like something they wanted, they stood there in pounce mode waiting for anyTHING to drop!!
They snarfed them up. What can I say, A home isn’t a home with out furry children. May your Valentines day be filled with love, kisses and wagging tails.
