Homemade organic cat treats


  1. 1/2 pound organic boneless, skinless chicken thighs
    1 cup fresh organic spinach leaves
    1 cup quick-cooking organic oats
    1 organic brown egg
    1 tablespoon organic catnip
    1/4 cup flour


  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Steam the boneless and skinless chicken thighs until fully cooked. You can substitute boneless, skinless organic chicken breast, salmon or tuna for cat-loving results, too. Let the chicken cool for 20 minutes before the next step.
  2. Place the chicken, oats, spinach leaves, eggs and catnip into a blender or food processor and blend over low heat until blended. It should still be a bit chunky but also soft, similar to the texture of wet sand.
  3. Put the mixture in a bowl and add the flour. You can also add a little salt or sugar to mix the flavour. Use your hands to knead the dough until it is no longer sticky, then place it on a work surface dusted with flour.
  4. Use a rolling pin to make a rectangle of dough 1/2 inch thick. With the help of a pizza cutter or a mini cookie cutter, make small shapes for your finished desserts.
  5. Place the cat candy on a tray lined with parchment, and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, cool to room temperature, then toss to your cat.
