The first recipe ever posted on this blog was “Recipe #1: Liver Brownies Recipe for Dogs“, and because Cotton’s treats jar was empty, we decided to remake those and try making our hand at some liver cookies too! We have updated the liver brownies recipe, so do head over if you would like to make some for pupzilla (without having to touch liver)!
Do note that for the liver cookies, it can be quite a mess especially if you do not fancy getting down and dirty with liver bits all over your hands! 😉 The preparation time depends on how quick a worker you are; because I had assistance from our part-time helper, it took roughly 20 minutes from prepping to rolling and cutting the cookies, to putting into the oven!
As with every recipe posted on our blog, these were a snatch with Cotton McHaughty – No matter how fussy, which dog can resist liver, right?
To start off, you will need the following ingredients:
- 350g of liver of any kind, pureed (We used chicken)
- 3-4cups of flour (Depending on the type of flour used, the amount will differ accordingly)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp of calcium powder (to balance out the phosphorus in liver)
- 1-2 tbsp of coconut oil (optional)
- Blend the liver in a food processor or blender, until liquefied.
- Add in 1 cup of flour at a time, until a dough ball forms. A handmixer or a standing mixer would be optimal if you do not wish to touch the pureed liver.
- Dust your work surface with flour. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out to about 0.3cm thickness (or whatever thickness your desire).
- Using your favourite cookie cutter(s), cut out desired shapes.
- Place the cookie cut outs on a parchment paper lined baking tray.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes at 170 Degree Celsius.
- Transfer to a cooling rack before giving to you pup!
It’s a really simple and forgiving recipe, if you accidentally added too much flour, just add a little broth or water to compensate. As compared to buying from a shop, these probably cost me $4 for a large batch, while if I had purchased from a vendor, it would probably cost me $10+.
You can also add cheese if you so wish, however because liver is already quite pungent on its own, I didn’t feel that it was quite necessary.

P.s Cotton had a seizure immediately after seeing the cookie jar filled with these cookies… So I think they are really that good that she got so excited at the prospect of eating them. (She’s fine)
