Homemade Cat Treats Part 2

Today  I put my baking skills to good use and made these awesome treats for Kitty.

I call it Tuna-tato Bites….It is super simple !

Ingredients :

1 can of tuna ( I used white flaked tuna)
1 egg
4 tbsp of rice flour (I used gluten free rice flour – it’s what I had!)
a few tsps of water
1/2 russet potato

Step 1

Peel and cut the potato into chunks and add it to boiling water. Let it boil for a good 8-10 mins.  Then, mash it up, making sure it is not too dry (add a few tsp of water to make it more pliable)

 

Step 2

Beat the egg in a separate bowl. Add them to the tuna and mix it well. Next add the rice flour.

 

Step 3

Spoon the mixture in a small muffin tin and bake in a preheated oven at 350C for 15 mins.

Note: if you are using muffin liners, the tuna will stick to it (as I later found out)… I would suggest leaving out the liners and bake directly in the pan.

 

Step 4

Spoon the mashed potatoes into a piping bag and add it on top of the baked treats once they have cooled. You can leave this part out if you prefer.

 

Finally, just to top it off, I added a piece of Kitty’s dry food to each of the treats:)

 

And now .. drumroll please…. The Taste Test…..

She LOVED it!!…. She wasn’t too crazy about the potato part so I may leave that out next time…

You will have to break the ‘muffin’ into smaller pieces for your cat …. It is a dry treat so make sure it is broken up to avoid any choking!!!… you can add some pumpkin puree to the tuna mixture if you want a more moist muffin.

No more than one muffin a day per cat…. And please store it in the fridge! It should last 3 to 5 days.
