I made a treat this week that drove the dogs absolutely wild.
Liver Whoopie Pies.

I’m not going to lie to you: They’re breathtaking. (I mean that literally, the smell of liver cooking in my house is one of my least favourite scents, possibly ever, but the dogs love the flavour so much that for special occasions, I will suck it up and take one for the team.) It’s Valentines Day and since these dogs are my favourite furry Valentines, I can’t help but want to spoil them, just a little, so I came up with these whoopie pies for dogs.

Don’t have a fancy whoopie pan pan? That’s OK! This whoopie pie dog treat recipe is really easy to make using muffin tins. Just grease the pan with olive or coconut oil and put 1/4″ of batter in the bottom of each muffin cup or, if you’re like me and can’t resist shopping for the kitchen, you can pick one up on Amazon.

Grain-Free Liver Whoopie Pie Dog Treat Recipe


    Liver Cakes:
  • 1 1/2 cups diced, cooked liver
  • 1 cup mashed potato (dry mashed, with no added liquids)
  • 1 heaping tsp. dried rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons potato flour (or flour, if your dog is wheat tolerant)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup water or stock
  • olive or coconut oil, to grease the pan
  • Liver Whoopie Pie Filling
  • 1 1/2 cups diced, cooked liver
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup water or stock
  • optional: 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • (Kol's Note: After discussion with our vet, for MY dogs, we feel safe using small amounts of garlic in some recipes, however, we know that not everyone is comfortable with this. We encourage you to do your research and discuss what the best for your dogs and their health needs.)


Makin' the Cakes

Preheat oven to 375F

In a blender, food processor or The Magic Bullet (my fav), combine liver chunks, mashed potato, rosemary, flour, egg and water. Blend until smooth.

Grease the whoopie pie pan and spoon the mixture into the cups. Place in the hot oven and bake for 30 - 40 minutes or until the cakes are firm. Remove from over and allow to cool completely.

Mixing up the whoopie filling

Combine the liver chunks and the garlic in the blender food processor or Magic Bullet (my fav), add in water or stock as needed. Try to keep the paste as stiff as possible; do not over add liquids. You want the paste to be the consistency of a thick icing.

Once the cakes are completely cool, spread a generous layer of liver over half the cakes. Place another cake on top, admire your fabulous culinary skills, then serve.

Store in fridge for 2 - 3 days or freeze and defrost as needed.

These are adorable! How long do you think these would stay good at room temperature? B/c the liver is already cooked, could they keep for a week or two w/o refrigeration?

I would strongly recommend storing these in the fridge and treating them like you would any cooked meat product (like human leftovers). Even cooked meat required refrigeration to inhibit bacterial growth. Generally, any of these that won't be consumed in 3 or 4 days, I freeze and defrost as desired.
