After posting the Dog Waffle recipe, I received a request for a cat treat recipe. Not having cats myself, I scoured the internet for ideas and researched a bit to find out what our feline friends like to eat. So here’s my first-ever…kitty treat! I’ll be delivering some to our neighbor’s 2 cats to get their “paws-up” or “paws-down” lol! I hear kitties can be a little more finicky with their foods, so I am curious to see how these go over. Oh and I should mention that since these contain salmon, they don’t exactly smell like a batch of double chocolate brownies coming out of the oven…but all worth it if it makes your kitty happy!
- 1 egg lightly beaten
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 6-8 ounces canned salmon drained and liquid reserved
- 1 1/2 cups oat flour
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 2 tablespoons brewer's yeast
- 1 tablespoon dried catnip
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Whisk together egg and oil in medium bowl.
- Add salmon and use hand mixer with dough hooks or use a spoon to break up and combine salmon with egg mixture.
- Add in oat flour, oats, brewer’s yeast, and catnip.
- Continue mixing to combine. Drizzle in reserved salmon liquid ¼ - 1/3 cup until mixture forms stiff dough.
- Scoop ½ teaspoon portions, push together dough to form small balls.
- Press down on each with tines of fork.
- Bake for 10-13 minutes. Will be dry on top, but still slightly soft on the bottom. Allow to cool completely on baking sheet.
- Store in air-tight container in refrigerator for a week or freeze for 6 months.
