Ingredients

  • 12 oz tuna in oil, you can use any fish in oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 cups coconut flour

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325°F
  • Pulse the tin of undrained, canned tuna, in a food processor to chop as finely as possible
  • In a stand mixer, combine al the ingredients together, including the fish paste, until you have a firm but rollable dough . If the dough is too dry, add coconut oil, a teaspoon at a time. If it's is too wet or sticky, add a bit more flour. The dough should be pliable.
  • Roll dough on a floured surface until about 1/4-inch thick. Use a mini cookie cutter in the shape of your choice to create your treats
  • Place treats on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 325°F for about 20 minutes. When they're slightly browned and crunchy, they're done
  • Once cool, keep in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks

Notes

You do not need to use a cookie-cutter, you can use a pizza wheel and create a criss-cross pattern, just be aware to keep the treats a similar size, or they will cook at different rates.
If your oven is not a convection model, then you will need to increase the heat to 350°F, but check the treats from 18 minutes onwards.
When you roll out the dough, use a non-wooden rolling pin, so the aroma of fish can not penetrate the rolling pin. If you have to use a wooden one, wash it quickly after rolling to preserve the integrity of the wood.
