Tuna Treats Kitty Dessert Chef Cat Treat Recipe
This cat treat recipe was part of my April Fools joke but it has been kitty tested and approved!

Ingredients
10 ounces Tuna in water (1 cup)*
2 tablespoons Catnip
1 Egg, slightly beaten
2 cups Whole Wheat Flour

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
2. In a bowl mix all ingredients one at a time, stirring well after each addition.
3. Knead dough into ball and roll onto a floured surface 1/4 inch thick. Take a straight edge and score the dough horizontally and then vertically to make a grid (I used a pizza cutter). Be careful not to completely cut through.
4. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 13 minutes. Cool and break into pieces, then refrigerate.

* I made this recipe with canned chicken and a friend tested it with canned tuna, it worked perfectly both ways.

    Hi! I am doing a Kids in the Kitchen program at my library this Summer and with our SRP theme I decided the kids will make cat or dog treats to bring home. I had 2 questions; 1. About how many does this recipe make? and 2. If eliminating the cat nip… is it a suitable treat for a dog too?
    Thank you so much for this recipe!

    That sounds like so much fun Lauren! It made quite a bit of treats, it all depends on how big you slice them. At this size it made over 5 to 6 dozen treats (I just took a rough count).
    You do need to remove the catnip but you can substitute it with dried parsley for the pups. I hope this helps. Woof!

    I’m in the midst of making them now. I am an extremely inexperienced baker and may have mixed in too much flour :) What would you recommend adding to keep them moist and avoid the dough from cracking while molding them (decided to shape into small balls before baking)…canola oil? Water? Not sure what’s best for cats.
