Crispy Holiday Tuna Treats for Tail-Wagging Celebrations
- 1 can tuna in water, drained
- 1 cup oat flour
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup shredded carrots
- 1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
- Preheat Oven:
Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Prepare Tuna:
Drain the water from the tuna can and flake the tuna into small, manageable pieces. Ensure there are no bones in the tuna.
- Mix Ingredients:
In a mixing bowl, combine the flaked tuna, oat flour, shredded carrots, finely chopped parsley, and the beaten egg. Drizzle the melted coconut oil over the mixture.
- Knead into Dough:
Knead the ingredients together until a dough forms. The consistency should be firm enough to hold its shape but not too dry.
- Roll and Cut:
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to your desired thickness. Use holiday-themed cookie cutters to cut out festive shapes.
Place the shaped treats on the prepared baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for approximately 12-15 minutes or until the treats are golden brown and crispy.
- Cool Completely:
Allow the treats to cool completely on a wire rack. This step ensures that the treats achieve the desired crispiness.
- Serve with Joy:
Present these Crispy Holiday Tuna Treats to your dog in their festive bowl. Watch as they enjoy the delightful combination of tuna, carrots, and oats.
- Store for Future Delights:
If your pup doesn’t devour them all at once, store the treats in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for future celebrations.
- Adjust treat sizes based on your dog’s size and dietary needs.
- Ensure that ingredients used are safe for dogs; avoid seasoning with salt, onions, garlic, and other harmful additives.
- Consult with your vet if your dog has specific dietary requirements or allergies.
These Crispy Holiday Tuna Treats are bound to make your dog’s tail wag with joy during the holiday season or any time you want to treat them to something special. Enjoy creating these delightful treats for your furry friend! 🐟🍪🐾
