Dog Liver Treat Recipe



» 1 pound organic beef liver

» 2 eggs

» 2 Tbsp blackstrap molasses 

» 1 cup coconut oil or olive oil

» 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour

» ¼ cup powdered kelp (optional)




1. In a food processor, add liver, eggs, and molasses. Pulse (on-off) until smooth. Slowly add the oil and blend for a few more seconds. Add the dry ingredients and blend until the mixture is completely smooth.

2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the mixture at a time over the baking sheets (the drops don’t have to be perfectly shaped, your dog doesn’t care) and bake for about 10 minutes or until you can smell them. At this point your dog is likely sitting by the oven, drooling. 

3. Cool and divide into a few Ziploc bags. I always leave a few cookies in the fridge for immediate consumption and freeze the rest.


Super Food Ingredients In This Dog Liver Treat Recipe

Liver is a wonderful dog treat and a good source of vitamin A and iron, but it should only be a treat. An overdose of Vitamin A can cause hypervitaminosis, a condition where chronic toxicity builds up in the body over a long period of time. Feed your pooch up to 1 oz. of liver per day for a medium to large dog, and up to 0.5 oz. per day for small dogs.



Blackstrap molasses has a wide range of uses, including as a dietary supplement because it contains vitamin B6, calcium, magnesium, iron, manganese, and potassium. Be sure to use blackstrap and not just molasses, which is made from sugar beets and is mostly sugar.



Kelp is an excellent source of iodine and other minerals that help promote thyroid function, and it can help maintain your dog’s shiny coat and healthy skin. Dogs with dry skin, skin allergies, and alopecia (hair loss) can benefit from eating kelp. Powdered kelp can be found in many drugstores, health food stores, and grocery stores where organic food is sold.
