Crunchy Tuna Cat Treats Recipe

Reward Your Favorite Feline With These Crunchy Tuna Treats

Spend less time running to the store and make these crunchy tuna treats at home for your cat instead! Enjoy these perr-worthy treats from our friends at Adventures in Making.

I will admit I'm a bit of a crazy cat lady. There's just something about those moody, independent fur-balls that I can't seem to get enough of. That's why I decided to whip up some homemade cat treats for my favorite felines, Simba (the fat orange tabby) and Dinah (the tiny brown tabby).

After the treats cooled from the oven, Simba graciously volunteered to pose for the camera while doing the all-important taste-test. Dinah is much more camera shy, so you'll just have to settle for Simba's two paws up review!

First things first, you'll want to make oat flour. You can do this by simply grinding old-fashioned oats in a clean coffee grinder until transformed into a light powder.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.

Combine all ingredients in a food processor with the blade attachment. Blend until mixture is smooth.

Roll into small 1/2 teaspoon balls and place onto the parchment. Press a finger into each ball to flatten slightly.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until they are slightly browned. Cool completely before surprising your kitty with a treat made just for them!
