    Wheat-Free Salmon Treats

    Ingredients

    • 1 8 oz. can salmon with juice
    • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
    • 3 eggs, shells included
    • 1/2 cup sesame seeds ground up in coffee grinder
    • 1/2 cup flax seeds ground up in coffee grinder
    • 2-3 cups potato flour

    Directions

    Put these ingredients into a food processor, mix VERY WELL. Pour potato flour through the opening while the motor is running. I can't tell you exactly how much, but I would guess about 2-3 cups. When the dough forms, like a pie crust, and rolls into a ball it is ready to take out.

    Dump this mess onto Potato floured counter or board. Knead more flour into this and when it is a rolled out cookie consistency, it is ready to roll out into about 14 inch thick. I use a pizza cutter to roll our long strips and then cut crosswise to make small squares . If you want FANCY you may use a cookie cutter.

    Bake on cookie sheets, sprayed Pam or line the sheet with parchment paper. I put in as many as will fit. Usually two whole cookie sheets suffices. I bake this in a 375º oven for 20 min.

    Turn and rotate the cookie sheets and bake about 10 more minutes. You can make them as soft or as hard as you want
