    • 1 cup rolled oats (like Quaker)
    • 1 cup cornmeal
    • 1 teaspoon flax seed, ground
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 can tuna or salmon, drained
    • 1/3 cup water (or as needed)


Preheat oven to 350°F
Spray Cookie Sheet with cooking spray oil

Grind flax seeds, set aside.
Grind oats to a coarse flour, set aside.
Put the tuna in your food processor beaker add pulse until smooth.  Add all other ingredients and pulse on and off until mixture comes together to form a ball. *If mixture is too dry add more water a teaspoon at a time.

Turn out dough onto a lightly floured work surface and kneed until the dough is soft, about 1 minute.  Roll out to a thickness of about 1/4".  Cut into shapes using a cookie cutter dipped in flour.  Place on greased cookie sheets. Bake treats for about 20-25 minutes or until firm and nicely browned. Cool treats on a wire rack.

Storing Dog Treats
In general you should store dog treats the same way you would homemade people cookies.  That being said, there are two main variables that determine storage time - the amount and type of fat in the recipe and your local weather conditions.  If your recipe uses fats such as butter, or meat bits or juices then it will be more prone to rancidity than a recipe that uses some vegetable oil or shortening.  Your treats may mold or spoil much faster in humid or very hot climates. 

Refrigeration and Freezing -  Refrigeration will prolong the life of more fragile dog treats. Make sure to store in a tightly sealed container or zip lock bag.  You can also freeze most treats in zip lock freezer bags.  Allow to thaw completely before use.
