Recently we shared this recipe on our social media channels, and thought it would be a great first blog post.
This is a simple recipe from our cookbook which is available for purchase.
We will also show you a few ways you can modify this recipe, or any of the others in our cookbook in order to meet your pets unique dietary needs. The great thing about most, if not all, of the recipes in our cookbook, is that they are great bases to start with, but you can also experiment by mixing and matching ingredients to fit your pups individual needs!
Original Recipe from our Cookbook:
Woof Loaf Ingredients: 1LB Lean ground Turkey, Chicken, or Beef ½ Cup Chopped Carrots ½ Cup Peas ½ Cup Oats 2 Eggs 3 Hard-Boiled Eggs
Preheat oven to 350*F.
In a bowl mix together meat, carrots and peas. Add oats and eggs, mix until the loaf mixture comes together. Lightly grease a loaf pan with olive oil and add half of the mixture to the pan. Place three hard-boiled eggs along the center of the loaf and then cover with the remaining half of the meat mixture.
Bake in oven for 45 minutes.
Serve in ½ inch slices.
Safe for cats too.
Today we’re going to tell you how to make 2 even healthier versions of the “Woofloaf” recipe found in our cookbook!
Next you will preheat oven to 350° and lightly grease a loaf pan, set aside.
I like to use healthy fats so I don't have to worry about any chemicals found in pan sprays etc.
Coco Therapy Coconut Oil is an excellent choice for your pets.
Next you will start with your ingredients:
- 1 pound of your choice of ground lean protein, pictured here is ground chicken breast.
- Add ½ Cup chopped carrots (I pulsed them in the Ninja)
- ½ Cup peas (frozen are best)
- I deviated from the recipe in the cookbook and added ½ Cup chopped spinach (frozen)
- Also a deviation, I added ½ Cup of pureed cucumbers.
- Still deviating, I also added ½ Cup of pureed celery.
- Add two large eggs
- Next ¾ Cup of Oats (I prefer gluten free). The recipe calls for ½ Cup but I deviated here and added an extra ¼ Cup to account for the additional moisture I added with the other ingredients.
- Mix together throughly.
Pureeing of finely chopping vegetables is a very important step to any recipe for dogs as they are unable to properly digest vegetables otherwise.
- Transfer ½ of the mixture to your prepared pan.
- Place 3 boiled eggs (peeled) down the middle of the pan.
- Top with remaining mixture. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes!
I also made an oat free version of the Woof loaf (pictured with the toothpick inserted in it through this post).
The grain free version was created using mostly the same ingredients, the only difference was I used ¾ Cup of chopped spinach, no oats, and baked an additional 20 minutes.
