Tasty Tuna Treats
Preheat oven to 350F degrees and grease cookie sheets with cooking spray
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup nonfat, dry, powdered milk
1/2 can tuna in oil or 1/2 cup cooked chicken, chopped into small pieces
1 tablespoon vegetable oil or cod liver oil
1 egg beaten
1/4 cup water
In a large bowl, mash the tuna (or chicken) into smaller pieces. Then add flour and milk. Mix well.
After everything is mixed pour in water and oil. Mix well again.
Now, beat the egg in a separate dish until the egg gets a foamy texture. Add to mix. Mix well. The dough mix will be sticky.
Using your fingers shape dough into small bite size balls, about the size of a marble. Put balls on greased cookie sheets. Flatten.
Bake for 10 minutes. Remove treats from oven; wait five minutes and turn treats over so other side will cook. Bake 10 more minutes or until golden brown in color.
Place treats on a rack to cool. Cool for 15 minutes.
