The size of the treats depends on what you use to cut them. I used a pastry tip as a cutter for mine. But if you want a treat that is even smaller, you could use something like a straw to cut them or you could just use a knife and cut it into really small pieces.

You can also get cute little mini cookie cutters that would work well for this dog treat recipe too.

How to Make Tuna Dog Treats

Before you start preheat the oven to 350.

Tuna egg and water in blender

In a food processor mix the egg, water, and tuna until fully mixed.

Then add 2/3 cup flour and mix until fully combined.

Rolling pin flatening dough

Flour the counter or surface and dump the dough onto it. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out until it is about as thick as a pie crust would be. Don’t worry, it puffs up when baked.

Cut out small shapes from dough

Use a mini cookie cutter, knife, or another small object to cut the dough into small pieces or shapes.

Line a cookie sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Then place the cut pieces on the sheet. You want them to be spaced so they are not touching.

Pop the sheet into the preheated oven and bake for about 15 minutes or until puffy and lightly golden. If you cut pieces super small, they will take less time to cook, so be sure to keep an eye on them.

Remove the dog treats from the oven and allow them to cool on the counter before putting them in an airtight container.
