BETTER THAN ANY DOG BISCUIT YOU’VE EVER BOUGHT… EVER!
The original sardine oatcake recipe.
This is personally my favourite recipe on my blog. If you are in need of super high-value treats – you just found them! Your dog will love these oatcakes, they are tasty, healthy, smell great, and just so easy to make! And from preparation to cooking time they take less than one hour! When I was thinking about what I could cook to make a dog food recipe to make at home I thought about making doggy flapjacks then found that oatcakes were even easier to make and the perfect treat recipe to use fish! I’ve taken these out with me several times when I’ve been dog walking and they are great for getting the attention of a dog who’s mind wanders when out for a walk! Very simple to make, all you need is 6 ingredients you probably already have and a biscuit cutter.
The dough is more like paper mache than biscuit dough. So alternatively you can use a silicone mould instead of a biscuit cutter.
For a more traditional looking oatcake replace 1 quarter of your rolled oats with pinhead oatmeal – but not necessary.
- 2 tins of sardines in oil (2x120g)
- 1 crushed garlic clove (or 1 small teaspoon of crushed garlic. No powder)
- 60g (1/3 cup) of wholemeal flour
- 300g (1 1/3 cups) of oats
- 150ml Chicken broth (homemade is best)
- 1 egg
Make around 150ml (1/4 pint) of stock. Chicken will do. If using cubes get the low salt ones.
Add the two tins of sardines to a bowl (including the oil)!
Mash the sardines thoroughly with a fork!
Add 1 crushed garlic clove or 1 teaspoon of chopped garlic
Add an egg
Add the 300g (10oz) of oats and 60g (2oz) of wholemeal flour
Add a little of broth to bowl. To start with try adding 1/3 of your broth.
Mix ingredients with your hands and make a dough ball! Too dry? Add more broth. Too wet? Add some flour or oatmeal.
Roll out and cut out biscuits!
Place dog biscuits on baking tray and place into a preheated oven at 190°C (370°F) for around 20-25 mins.
Yum, that’s them cooked and they smell great!
