Tasty Tuesday Fish Delish-Sardine Brownies
What with our graying muzzles and advancing years Mom likes to keep us all loaded up with healthy foodables. One of her favorite foods to give is us is Sardines. These stinky little fish are loaded with heart healthy Omega 3 Fatty Acids and Coenzyme Q 10, great stuff for aging hearts and brains, and they have DHA which is good for both older and developing puppy brains (so it should help Weasley work on his smarts).
In fact Sardines are one of the Whole Dog Journal's five steps to upgrading your dogs diet. So now that we have sold you on sardines what should you do with them? They are great just dumped atop a bowl of kibble which is how we usually eat them, and trust us even the pickiest dog will rarely turn them down, but why stop there? We wanted to explore the baking possibilities of sardines so Mom made super easy sardine brownies for our Saturday Northern New Jersey Pug Extravaganza Meet Up.
3 3.75 oz cans of sardines in water, dumped into a bowl and mashed (do not drain)
1 1/2 cups Brown Rice Flour
1 Tbsp garlic powder
Preheat the oven to 325. Stir all of the ingredients together until a smooth dough forms. Spray a 9 inch square baking pan with non-stick spray and pour the brownie batter in. Bake in the oven until cooked through, about 25 minutes.
Note: In the opinion of humans these brownies are STINKY our dad came home and said what is that smell! He thought mom had spilled are 64 ounce gallon of Salmon Oil Supplement on the kitchen floor again. So if your peeps bake these you may want to tell them to open some windows.
