Recipe: Chicken Liver & Green Bean Dog Biscuits

Pin It

We’re making plans for Sunday’s Easter egg hunt with Irie and Tiki which will include a few boiled eggs and some special dog treats for the occasion (substituting as their breakfast on Sunday morning.)

Both Irie and Tiki absolutely love chicken livers (and I love the price!) so I created this easy recipe. It makes a LOT of treats; if you just have one dog or have small dogs, you might want to halve the recipe. I have used one pound of chicken livers since it is sold in a one-pound tub at my supermarket (and it has a very short life in your refrigerator) but you could use half a pound for this recipe and half for another chicken liver recipe.

Recipe: Chicken Liver & Green Bean Biscuits

Recipe: Chicken Liver & Green Bean Biscuits

Ingredients

  • 5 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups brown rice flour
  • 1 pound chicken livers
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) green beans, no salt added, drained
  • 1 egg

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and either grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor or blender, mix chicken livers until liquid then add green beans. Pulse until liquid with only small chunks remaining.
  3. Mix flours and egg then pour in chicken liver and green bean mixture. Mix dough (by hand or with a dough hook). The dough will be heavy. (If the dough is sticky, add a little more flour; if too dry, add a little water.)
  4. Roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness then cut with your favorite cookie cutters. (Alternatively, pinch off a small piece of dough, roll it into a ball, place on cookie sheet and slightly flatten with a fork.)
  5. Bake treats for about 30 minutes; watch for treats to brown on the bottom.
  6. (Optional) To create a little glaze on the cookies, whip an egg then dip the top of the biscuits in the egg mixture, returning to oven for another two minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and allow to completely cool before refrigerating. Can be refrigerated for about two weeks.
