How about something a little different for your dog than regular crunchy cookies? Introducing mini-muffins that you can make yourself! These bite-sized treats are easy to put together and are packed with good ingredients like spinach, chicken, and wild rice.
1 cup wild or other rice (I use brown and wild)
1 cup chicken, finely diced
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
3-4 tablespoons chopped fresh spinach leaves
1 large egg, beaten
Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly spray a mini muffin tin* with cooking oil.
Add all ingredients to a medium mixing bowl and stir until well combined.
Fill each well to the top with mixture. Press down firmly with the back of a spoon.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until lightly golden brown.
Let cool completely. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator for 3-4 days.
Yield: Approximately 1 dozen mini muffins.
-To save time, you can buy a cooked rotisserie chicken at the supermarket, as well as ready-to-serve microwaveable rice.*
