Liver & Cranberry Brownies
Brownies and healthy homemade dog treats are not words that always go together. But they do now! We’ve combined liver, a dog favourite, with fresh whole cranberries to create a tempting and healthy dog treat.
Did you know that cranberries are a good source of vitamin C, potassium and fiber for dogs.
1/2 lb beef liver (organic is best)
1/2 cup fresh cranberries (frozen will work too if fresh isn’t available)
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 tbsp dried parsley
Preheat oven to 400° F
In a food processor add liver first and pulse until it resembles a pasted. Pulse the ingredients except the cranberries.
Scrape the sides of the food processor and continue pureeing until a dough forms.
Remove the food processor blade, then scoop the mixture into a medium bowl.
Fold in the fresh or thawed frozen cranberries.
Line parchment paper in a 8×8 baking pan with the ends of the parchment paper just extending past the sides of the pan (prevents sticking and makes it easier to lift out after it’s cooked).
Spread the mixture into the baking pan.
Bake for 25 minutes.
Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
Lift the parchment paper to release the entire brownie block from the pan, onto the cooling rack to completely cool.
Storing – These healthy homemade dog treats need to be kept in the refrigerator. They will keep for 2 weeks in the fridge, and up to 6 months in the freezer.
Yield – How many dog treats you get depends on how small or large you cut the brownies. We were able to cut the 8×8 block into 24 pieces that were 1 inch by 2 inches in size.
