Recipe: Liver Brownies (Dogs or Cats)


This recipe was developed by Kathy Gibson-Anklam of Rockwood Hospital for Pets in Merrill, Wisconsin and is published here with her permission.  The recipe provides 30 percent protein, 21 percent fat, and 45 percent carbohydrates.


  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 800 IU Vitamin E
  • 1 tablespoon fresh, chopped garlic
  • 2 pounds raw liver (beef or chicken)
  • 3 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup corn meal
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup lecithin granules
  • ¼ cup kelp powder
  • 8 teaspoons Animal Essentials calcium
  • 1 tablespoon brewer’s yeast
  • ½ cups water (enough to make a batter)


Beat eggs and oil.  Squeeze contents of vitamin E capsules into egg mixture and add garlic.

Process the liver to a paste in a blender or food processor.  Add to the egg mixture.

Add the dry ingredients to the liver mixture, plus enough water to be able to stir well.  You want to have a thick batter when you are done.

Spread the batter in a greased 17” X 11” jelly roll pan.  Bake at 350°F for 35 to 45 minutes, until nicely browned and firm to the touch.

Cool completely.  Cut into bite-size pieces.  Refrigerate or freeze.  Use refrigerated brownies within 4 to 5 days.

Note:  This treat will be very enticing to dogs and cats because of the high liver content.  It is, however, very high in vitamin A, which comes primarily from the liver.  So use this as an occasional treat, not for daily use.
