And they call it puppy love

This Valentine’s Day, show your dog or cat some love with this homemade, heart-shaped treat recipe from Lucy Postins, founder of The Honest Kitchen.

Valentines Liver Nibbles


2 cups fresh raw chicken liver, preferably organic
2 free range eggs
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 cups instant quinoa flakes
3 tbsp. unsweetened applesauce
¼ cup dried cranberries or blueberries
1 clove fresh garlic, crushed
1 tsp. dried basil
Filtered water sufficient to make a batter


  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F.
  2. Process the liver in a blender or food processor until completely pureed.
  3. Beat the eggs in a bowl and pour in the oil.
  4. Add the pureed liver.
  5. Mix in the dry ingredients slowly, stirring continuously so they are thoroughly combined.

Add water gradually until you have a “batter” consistency.

  1. Pour this batter into a flat 1½ to 2” cake tin.
  2. Bake at 350˚for 50 minutes.
  3. Cool in the tin until able to be handled, then gently turn the “cake” out onto a rack and refrigerate to cool completely.
  4. Use heart-shaped or other cookie cutters to gently press out individual shapes.

What are some of your pet’s favorite treats?
