Chewy Cat Treats for Cats

CAT 2.jpg

Ever think to make a homemade cat treat for your beautiful feline companion?

Your cat should just love these treats!

Ingredients:
·         1 large egg
·         1 4-oz jar chicken and brown rice baby food (or something meaty which may include canned wet cat food)
·         1/4 cup parsley, coarsely chopped
·         2 teaspoons olive oil
·         2 tablespoons water
·         1 cup brown rice flour
·         1/2 cup cooked white (or brown) rice
·         other things you might add other treats like : 1 tablespoon of catnip or a hearty tablespoon of extra wet cat food

Place a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together egg, baby food (or wet cat food), parsley, olive oil, and water.  Add brown rice flour and cooked rice.  Stir to incorporate.  The mixture will be thick but spreadable.

Spread mixture onto prepared baking sheet creating a rectangle that is about 1/3 of an inch thick.   Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.

Remove from the oven.  Let rest until cool enough to handle, then slice soft dough into bite-sized pieces.  Return pieces to the oven to bake for another 8 minutes.  Remove from the oven.  Allow to cool completely and store in an airtight container in the fridge.  (I store my treats in the fridge just to be safe.)

(makes about 50 small treats)
