DIY Tuna Dog Treats

If you do positive reinforcement training with your dog, you know how annoying it is to use store-bought treats that are way too big and leave crumbs EVERYWHERE. And have you ever looked at the ingredient list on the back? Most of them are full of chemicals I can’t even pronounce!

So I decided to start making my own treats (btw I don’t even bake for my bf but I will bake for my dog LOL).

This recipe only requires 3 ingredients and 5 minutes to prep. Best of all, I can make tiny, mess-free treats that are perfect for our training sessions.


Note: I use these silicone baking mats for this recipe, and all I have to do is pop them out at the end - super easy!

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
 

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375°F

2. Blend the tuna with the eggs until smooth, 10-20 seconds in a blender.

3. Add rice or tapioca flour and whisk until the mixture reaches a thick pancake batter consistency. (Rice flour is ideal for getting a soft texture without being crumbly once baked. Avoid coconut flour - it really dries out the treats!)

4. Spread the batter evenly over the silicone baking mat. I use a dough scraper, but you can also use a butter knife.

5. Bake at 375°F for 20 minutes, or until the treats are a light golden color. (Don’t worry if you overbake them a little bit - they’ll just be slightly on the crispier side.)

Store the treats in the fridge for up to two weeks, or keep them in the freezer. Happy training!
