Catnip treat ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon of organic dried catnip (optional)

Oven temperature set to 350 degrees

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.
