✦ Pamper your canine darlings with this homemade treat. A way to a dog's heart is through their stomachs!
Did you know that liver is a kind of superfood for dogs? It's a great source of protein and does not have as much fat as muscle meat. It's also rich in nutrients such as Vitamin A, D, B, folic acid, iron and other minerals like copper and zinc. All these help with their immune functions, anaemia and supports bone and joint health.
*Always check with your vet about the appropriate amount of any type of food to give to your dog. This may vary depending on the breed, size and health conditions etc.
For this recipe you can use beef or chicken liver. If you don't have a food processor, a blender or liquidizer would work as well. Otherwise you can finely chop the oats and liver before cooking.
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ pound chicken livers, rinsed and trimmed
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vegetable oil, or more as needed
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch square baking dish and line it with parchment paper.
Add oats to the bowl of a food processor; pulse until finely chopped, 10 to 15 seconds. Transfer oats to a large bowl and mix in flour.
Place livers in the food processor and process until smooth, 10 to 15 seconds. Add eggs and blend until well combined, about 10 seconds. Add oil and process until incorporated.
Add liver mixture to oat and flour mixture; stir until well blended. Spoon into the prepared baking dish.
Bake in the preheated oven until firm to the touch but not hard and crispy, 30 to 40 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let cool completely before cutting into 50 pieces.
And there you have it! Homemade (with love) dog liver bites that's going to go down a real treat! We are going to have to change the expression 'it's a dog's life' to mean the complete opposite nowadays, given the pampering our canine friends receive from their Forever Homes!
