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.

Sardine Brownies

 3 3.75 oz cans of sardines in water, dumped into a bowl and mashed (do not drain)
2 eggs
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.   


  1. Mmmm. Sardines is one of my favorite food. They're actually cheap in our country and we usually get them in cans. And I agree, it's super stinky. When Peanuts is picky, I would end up putting some sardines in her dog food.

    Good choice for a dog treats.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  2. They sure look simple to make but I bet they are extra stinky!

  3. I bet Payton would have loved them in both forms. She was a seafood girl.

  4. Haylie would love these she is a HUGE seafood lover. I just cant stand the smell or I else I would make them :)

  5. What a good idea!! No wonder every buddy is looking good

  6. The pups love sardines and I feel great about feeding them. They're a regular menu item around here!

  7. Woof! Woof! Interesting Sardine ... Delish n TASTY! Happy Tasty Tuesday. Lots of Golden ALOHA n Woofs, Sugar

  8. Oh boy - I would probably love these but mom won't have anything to do with fish. They would be good for my older sister too - I will have to take this recipe and make my sweet faces at her and see if she will cave! Thanks for sharing!

  9. Gee now I know Sardine brownies are a real thing! I always thought it was a joke!

  10. Those sound good... for pups

    Stop on by for a visit

  11. Yum yum yum, Susie-Belle loves the sound of these, we're going to be trying them out methinks. Glad to have found you chaps, we're going to enjoy visiting you we know it :)

  12. Hi Urb Hounds - Sorry, I'm onlt now getting caught up with my blogs. We just moved and are still living amongst piles of boxes. Those sardine brownies sound awesome - the stinkier the better I always say. I've been on a new diet with salmon as the protein in my dog food so I'm sure sardines would complement that well. Thank you for the tip!
