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 !
1 can of tuna ( I used white flaked tuna)
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
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)
Beat the egg in a separate bowl. Add them to the tuna and mix it well. Next add the rice flour.
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.
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.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this recipe and if you end up making it for your furbaby, please send me some photos so I can share them here:)
