Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two large cookie sheets with foil; set aside. Drain tuna, reserving 1/4 cup of the liquid (if necessary, add broth or milk to measure 1/4 cup). In a small bowl combine tuna, the 1/4 cup reserved liquid, oil, and catnip. In a medium bowl stir together all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour. Stir in tuna mixture and cheese. If necessary, stir in up to 2 tablespoons water just until moistened. Form mixture into a ball.

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 10-inch square. Using a pizza cutter or a knife, cut into 1/2-inch squares (bite-size for cats). Place squares in a single layer on the prepared cookie sheets.

  • Bake on separate oven racks for 20 to 25 minutes or until light brown, rearranging cookie sheets halfway through baking. Cool on cookie sheets on wire racks.

*Tip:

Depending on how much your cat likes catnip, you can add more or less to the cookies (some cats don't respond to catnip). Look for dried catnip at a pet supply store.

To Store:

Place cat treats in an airtight container; cover. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 6 months.
