Make Your Own Cat Treats: Catnip Crackers

Cats will go bonkers for these catnip crackers, so save them for rainy days and special occasions. You can pay a lot more for commercial cat treats, but they wont measure up to these fresh, homemade ones.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons dried catnip (available at pet shops and in pet aisle at most supermarkets)
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil


    How to make it  Under 20 minutes

  • 1

    Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, mix flours and catnip together. Stir in yogurt, egg, honey, and vegetable oil.

  • 2

    Press out dough on a floured surface and cut into tiny treats using a cookie cutter or pizza wheel. Place on greased cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

  • 3

    Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for a week or in the freezer for up to three months.

  1. Cool, my cat will go nuts for plain ice! I sometimes add some tuna oil over the ice.
    I loved everything about these treats. Do you have any other ideas for treats that need no baking? That’ll help!
    Thanks!
