Default SUPER easy liver treats, dogs go NUTS for these

Preheat oven to 350

Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray or coat well with non stick cooking spray or oil.

1 tub chicken livers, 1.25 lbs
3 large eggs
1 clove garlic chopped (USE FRESH!)
3 cups quick oats
1 cup, more or less, unbleached or whole wheat flour

In a large bowl, measure out 3 cups quick oats and 1 tsp salt.

Whirl the liver, eggs, and garlic in a food processor until liquefied. Pour into the bowl with the oats. Mix well. Add enough flour to make the mixture thick enough so that you can spread it on a cookie sheet. More flour makes a breadier cookie. Less makes a chewier one.

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Remove pan, and using the foil, turn the sheet of liver cookie over. Bake for 10 more minutes.

Cool on a rack and cut into pieces. Refrigerate until use. I have not tried to freeze them, so don't know if that is feasible. They don't last long enough around here to get to the freezer.

My dogs go NUTS for these things. They are a good consistency, and hold shape even if cut into very small pieces.

I make similar ones.. but tend to use spelt flakes vs oatmeal.

VERY popular treats!

A sprinkle of parmigiana cheese on top is good too.

What are quick oats? Oatmeal?

I also suggest getting REALLY drunk while making them. I have a pretty tough stomach, but when I'm liquefying those livers in the food processor I feel just a tad more than a little nauseous.

But dogs (and cats!) go insane for these treats. I make very similar ones.

Bet they could be made with beef hearts. I'm not big on feeding livers unless I can get them from a source where I know the animal hasn't been injected with hormones and antibiotics.

Chicken livers go 'creamy' when boiled.. it doesn't work as well with any other liver.. don't think it would work well with hearts.

Around here the beef is more likely to be injected than the chicken

Renee, do you feed kibble to your dogs? If so, what kind?

EVO RM. I've got a real problem with adding liver that's not clean to their diets, liver being the clean out where all those chemical toxins gather Probably overly sensitive to it on my part, but I figure any little bit helps.

I wish I had a good source for raw meats, but I haven't found one here yet. I'm hoping I can talk one or two of the custom processors around here to supply me, but I'll need to have a reliable source of income before I ask them. Wouldn't be good form to ask, then, when they save me the stuff, tell them I can't pick it up because I can't pay for it - or even the gas to get there
