Kitty Cat Tuna Catnip treats

Kitty treats

Kitty treats (from the freezer)

Since more cats are starting to enjoy the homemade cat treats, here is the recipe I used:

1 – 5 oz can tuna packed in water, drained (be sure to give the “tuna water” to your cat!)

1 cup flour (I used garbanzo bean flour because I had some in my cupboard.  Oat flour or probably any flour could also be used.)

1 egg

1 Tablespoon olive oil

1 heaping Tablespoon dried catnip

Preheat oven to 350F.  Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet.

Place all the ingredients in a food processor and process until a dough forms.  Roll the dough into 1/2 teaspoon-size balls and place on cookie sheet.  Use a skewer to make an X-shape in each cookie ball and flatten it a bit (sort of like making peanut butter cookies!).  Bake 10-12 minutes until treats are dry on top and slightly browned.

Cool before offering to your cat!  You can refrigerate them for up to a week or freeze them.

This recipe makes a nice Ziploc sandwich bag full.
