It’s the holiday season and you’ve likely spent some time in the kitchen making baked goods, but what about your furry family members? Below are the instructions on how to make 4 ingredient cat treats! It’s super simple, so give it a shot!

Catnip treat ingredients

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon of organic dried catnip (optional)

Oven temperature set to 350 degrees

Step 1:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Ingredients in blender

Step 2:

Blend all ingredients in a food processor until a smooth dough forms

Ingredients blended and placed in mold

Step 3:

Place small balls of dough (1/4 tsp) onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and slightly flatten (if you have a small mold like us, fill it up)

Kitchen timer set for 15 minutes

Step 4:

Bake in preheated oven for approximately 15 minutes.
