ABOUT THE INGREDIENTS

Although there are just 3 ingredients, you can swap out the protein for a different protein, and likewise for the flour.

GROUND MEAT OPTIONS

You can make these treats with chicken, turkey or rabbit.

I often use ground or minced rabbit in my treats. I am lucky enough to have a local butcher who sells rabbits that are hunted from a nearby country estate, so they are free range rabbits too!

I cook the whole rabbit in a slow cooker until the meat is tender. Then I carefully remove the bones: rabbit has lots of little tiny bones, so if you plan to do this yourself, be very thorough! You don’t want bits of bone sneaking into your Easter dog treats.

Then I put the meat in the food processor and blitz it until I have finely ground rabbit mince. I keep the bones and make bone broth with them – great for lots of other treats and for whenever my dog has a sensitive stomach!

Rabbit is a fantastic protein for dogs:

  • High in vitamins B3 and B12
  • High in phosphorus, potassium and selenium
  • Rich in Omega fatty acids
  • Low in fat

However, not everyone has the option of buying rabbit. If that’s you, some lean turkey mince or ground chicken will do just fine.

FLOUR OPTIONS

I do not use all purpose flour at all in my dog treats – see here for more information about what flour is best for dog treats.

Instead, for these Easter dog biscuits, I use oatmeal (ground oats) or almond flour (ground almonds), or a blend of the two.

If you don’t have oatmeal, but you do have oats, you can easily grind up oats for your dog treat recipes in a food processor, or even better, a coffee / nut grinder. I don’t use my coffee grinder for coffee at all!

A coffee grinder is useful for so much more than grinding coffee.

In fact, I never use mine for coffee. It’s dedicated to grinding oats, nuts, seeds and even dried fruit for my dog treats.

INGREDIENTS

  • 100gr / 3.5oz ground meat: rabbit / turkey / chicken
  • 100gr / 3.5oz almond flour or oatmeal, or a combination of the two
  • 90gr / 3.5oz pumpkin puree, unsweetened

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Step 1. Preheat the oven to 170 deg C / 340 deg F
  • Step 2. Put the ingredients in a food processor and mix until they are blended together well in a dough
  • Step 3. Pat the dough into a ball. Put it between 2 pieces of greaseproof or parchment paper and roll it out to a thickness of around 1/4″ or 5-6mm
  • Step 4. Cut out biscuits using the cookie cutters
  • Step 5. Place the biscuits on greaseproof or parchment paper on a baking tray
