Ingredients
  • 1½ cups coconut flour
  • 1 cup canned wild caught salmon, drained* (I used WholeFoods 365 canned Sockeye Salmon)
  • ½ cup coconut oil, melted, but not hot
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree (you can also use pureed sweet potato or squash)
  • 4 pasture raised eggs
Optional add-ins:
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley or 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, roughly chopped
Instructions
  1. Add all of the ingredients to your food processor. Process until well blended and it easily forms a ball, when you take a little in your hand. If it feels a bit too wet, add just a little more coconut flour, but know that the coconut flour in the dough will absorb as the dough sits.
  2. Gently flatten the ball into a disc and place into an airtight container or wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 350ºF and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  4. Place the dough disc between two pieces of parchment paper. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out until it is about ⅛ to ¼-inch thick.
  5. Using desired cookie cutter shape(s), start cutting and transfer to the prepared baking sheets. Don’t waste any of the dough, use the leftover scraps, roll what’s left into a rope, cut into little nuggets and bake. They make great little tiny bite-sized training treats.
  6. Bake 18-20 minutes, until golden brown and hard. It is important that biscuits are completely dried out or they will go bad.
  7. If you take them out and as they cool, if they feel moist at all, I recommend placing the biscuits in a single layer on an oven-safe cooling rack, and place into a 200ºF oven for 10-20 minutes, until they are dry, hard, crisp and have no moisture at all.
  8. Let cook completely and store in an airtight container for a few weeks.
Notes
