Ria I have another treat recipe although its not really baking!

Hoggy meatballs!
Can also be used as hoggy cake.

Makes about 145g of mix
Makes 16 small dog meat balls - weighing about 5g and 16 hog meatballs - weighing about 2-3g

80g Mince meat - Lamb, beef or Turkey
1/2 an egg
35g Plain oats normal or gluten&wheat free depending on diet needs.

Put in a bowl mix together until well combined
Shape into a cake shape for hoggy meat cake. Shape into small balls for hoggy meat balls (make some bigger for dogs and cats too)
Dry fry untill cooked all the way through or put in the oven at 200°C (fan) and cook for about 10-15 mins (as its only small) or until you think its fully cooked.

If you did a cake you can add some mashed (no butter or milk) hog safe veg - sweet potato, carrot or parsips work really well as icing and fave insects on top as decorations

Once cooked these can be:
Frozen put in a airtight bag/container kept for 3 months.
Kept in the fridge in an airtight bag/container for a week

Here are some pictures of them in the making and cooked

Both Holly and my dog love them!

Ria The cake I used a small silicon mould - boring round but use whatever shape! I couldn't find my heart shaped ones!

I filled it as far up in the photo. They don't rise. The photo is also what they look like cooked.
And you test that they are cooked the same way you test any other cake!

Ria Another recipe! Its more like a cake so good as a birthday cake treat!

2 tablespoons refined coconut oil (melted)
1 egg
1 tablespoon water
53g coconut flour
1/4-1/2 small empire Apple (depending how much apple you want) - Grated
If you want frosting you can use pureed apple or mashed sweet potatp

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C
Use some (extra) melted coconut oil to grease the small mould you are using - a small ramekin or the tiny cilicon cupcake moulds work well!

In a medium bowl, mix together the melted coconut oil and eggs. Stir in the flour and apple until totally absorbed.

Put the batter into the ramekin (or whatever you are using) bake until lightly browned and firm when pressed in the center, 15 minutes.

Cool in the ramekin (or whatever you are using), then remove.
Ice if you want, add some insects for the hog if you wish. Serve!

Storing them I'm not sure just yet! But air tight container always! Prob last a week in the fridge and couple months in the freezer

Ria Hm, I would try with the chicken with the egg. See if he eats it then.
Sometimes they just like a bit other flavour mixed with the meat.
Like I put the flaxseed oil on the turkey to give it a bit more flavour
And I add veg with the chicken so its jot just chicken she has the flavours from the veg with it.

The only one I never have have to worry about her taking is the duck she LOVES duck! And salmon too - very small amounts and only ever gets fresh salmon nothing like smoked salmon.

ChloëMali I've tried giving Prickles chicken, but he doesn't seem to like the taste. I'll try the scrambled egg in coconut oil and see what he thinks.
Thank you!
