Harvey loves to “help” me in the kitchen. Sometimes it’s nearly impossible to get anything done with a meowing fur ball dancing around my ankles. There’s been times when I’ve just wanted to explode! Then I look down and see his smiley, fuzzy face looking up at me, and I melt all over again… I wanted to make my carb junkie, kitchen companion a special treat of his own and came up with these cookies. Slightly modified from a recipe found in “How It All Vegan”, they are super easy to make and Harvey loves them… I use Seagreens Powder as an ingredient. If you don’t have any, switch it for kelp powder or dried catnip.
1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 tbsp Wheat Germ
2 tbsp Wheat Bran
2 tbsp Cornmeal
1 1/2 tsp Seagreens Powder (can substitute with kelp or catnip)
1/2 tsp Dried Sage
1 1/2 tsp Brewer’s Yeast
1 tbsp Textured Vegetable Protein
1 1/2 tsp Molasses
1 tbsp Canola Oil
2 tbsp + 2 tsp water
Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
Stir together flour, wheat germ, wheat bran, cornmeal, seagreens powder, sage, and textured vegetable protein. Set aside.
Blend molasses, oil, and water. Pour into dry ingredients and mix well (the dough is quite firm and you will need to finish mixing it by kneading).
Roll out the dough to about 1/8″ thick and cut into narrow strips (1/4″ – 1/2″ wide). Score the strips so they can easily be broken into bite size pieces after baking.
Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 20 – 30 minutes, depending on how soft your feline friend likes them (Harvey likes them on the crunchy side).
Allow to cool completely and store in an air tight container. I store mine in strips and snap into Kitty Cookies at time of serving.
Keeps in an air tight container for 1 month.
