Homemade Organic Spinach and Chicken Cat Treats

  • 1/2 pound steamed organic boneless and skinless chicken thighs

  • 1 cup fresh organic spinach leaves

  • 1 cup organic quick-cooking oats

  • 1 organic brown egg

  • 1 tablespoon organic catnip

  • 1/4 cup flour

Preheat your oven to 350º F. Steam the boneless and skinless chicken thighs until cooked through. You can swap for boneless and skinless organic chicken breasts, salmon, or tuna with cat-loving results too. Let the chicken cool for 20 minutes before the next step.
Place the chicken, oats, spinach leaves, egg, and catnip in a blender or food processor, and pulse on low until the mixture blends together. It should still be a bit chunky but also smooth, similar to the texture of wet sand.
Pop the mixture into a bowl and add the flour. You can also add a dash of salt or sugar to mix up the flavor. Use your hands to knead the dough until it's no longer sticky, then place on a flour-dusted work surface.
Use a rolling pin to create a rectangle of dough around 1/2 inch thick. With the help of a pizza cutter or small cookie cutter, create small shapes for the finished treats.
Place the kitty treats on a parchment-lined sheet tray, and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, cool until room temperature, and then toss to your cat.

Homemade Organic Chicken Treats

  • Greased cookie sheet

  • ½ c organic whole wheat flour

  • ½ c non-fat, powdered milk

  • ½ c cooked and chopped organic chicken

  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil

  • 1 organic egg, beaten

  • ¼ c water

  • 1 Tbsp chopped, fresh organic catnip (optional)


Gather the ingredients and preheat your oven to 350° F. Ensure you have plenty of counter space to work on.

Combine the flour, milk, and chicken in a large bowl and mash and mix them together. Add the water, oil, beaten egg, and catnip (if using). Stir well until a sticky dough forms.

Form the dough into small dime-sized balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Flatten the balls into discs with your hand or a spoon. You can adjust the size of the treats based on your cat’s size and needs.

Bake the organic treats for 10 minutes. Remove them from the oven and flip each one so they brown on both sides. Bake for an additional 10 minutes or until they turn a golden brown color.

Cool the treats to room temperature and store in an airtight container or bag.
