You might recall that I made just a couple New Years Resolutions for the Mama.

One of them was to lose the spare tire because she’s hogging the bed and frankly, a puggle needs his beauty sleep. So, ever the obedient human, she’s been trying to eat better. In her search for yummy things to do with bring low-calorie whitefish, she came across a recipe from d’Market Movers and knew she had to try it. White fish? Sweet Potato? Coconut? What’s not to love? She made it and proceeded to hog both servings all to herself. Yeah, Mama. Good call. Eating two dinners will definitely take that extra weight off.

I know better than to beg.

Begging at Casa de Kolchak gets you nowhere (unless it happens to be 7 am and there is even a chance the Mama might get to go back to bed if she feeds you. The she hand out snacks like one of those gumball machines.) Usually, while the Mama eats, I go and lay down, but the scent of this fish was just driving me wild. I was super interested in getting a taste of this whitefish concoction and why not? Almost all the ingredients were dog friendly. The Mama almost succumbed to the heavy guilt-trip I was sending her on when she remembered: leeks. The fish had leeks in it. Leeks are not dog friendly and just like that my hopes of a tasty dinner were dashed.

Get in the kitchen, Mama. It’s time to make this right.

I just knew that meal smelled like dog food. Why the Mama was eating dog food was beyond me, but as long as she got into that kitchen and make us snacks, I didn’t really care. These grain-free dog treats totally rocked my world. As an added bonus, they are not only grain free, but also egg-free, dairy-free and made with tasty low-cal fish.

Grain Free Whitefish, Sweet Potato & Coconut Dog Treats

1 1/2 cups whitefish paste (see below)
1 cup mashed sweet potato
1 1/2 cups finely shredded coconut
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2. tsp garlic powder (optional)
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tbsp. white or apple cider vinegar

Preheat oven to 350F.

Makin’ the fish paste: OK, I get it. Not everyone is crazy like us and just has whitefish paste in the house. well…you should! White fish paste is a great little trick to add to your arsenal. Use it like peanut butter inside a Kong, mix a little into kibble to entice a picky eater, freeze it in ice cube trays for easy pupsicles. The sky is the limit. To make whitefish paste, bake 2 – 3 whitefish filets at 350F until cooked (about 45 minutes). Place whitefish in a blender, food processor or (my fav) the Magic Bullet with 1/2 – 2/3 c. of water and puree until smooth.

In a medium bowl, mix together whitefish paste, mashed sweet potato, coconut, garlic, ginger and baking powder. Stir together until it forms a loose dough.

Add the baking soda and pour the vinegar over top, so that it fizzes like that third grade volcano experiment. Mix into the dough.
We got a *really cool* Wilton Nonstick Bone Cookie Pan from Grandma for Christmas and this was our first chance to use it.
If you don’t have a *really* cool bone pan, that’s OK too. Just press the dough into a standard cookie sheet and score them into squares with  knife.
Place in the oven and bake. Cookies made in the cookie molds should take about 25 – 30 minutes. The cookies made on the cookie sheet will take closer to 45 – 50 minutes. They should be golden brown on both sides and firm.
The  cookie treats can be kept in the fridge for up to two weeks. For a cookie with a longer shelf life, you can turn the oven down to 150F and leave the cookies in for several hours until crisp and completely dry. We like to use our Nesco dehydrator for this. Just pop them in and let them dry over night. No fuss, no mess, no worry about the oven!
