Baking: Carnivore Brownies
submitted by Janice Dougherty
1 3/4 lbs. liver (beef, pork, chicken, whatever's available)
3 large/extra large eggs
1 tablespoon garlic powder (or crushed fresh if you're doing this
3 cups rice or corn flour
4 oz. bee pollen (not necessary, but great if you have it. Packaged
for horses, it's cheaper than for humans) You could also substitute brewer's
yeast if it's handy, or a vitamin supplement that is cooking resistant.
1 tablespoon salt. This is a high protein concoction that will
spoil easily without salt. Kosher is good.
2 cups of your usual dog food. Small pellet varieties can be added
whole, larger nugget varieties should be blenderized to insure uniform
1.) Puree liver in blender or food processor. More fibrous,
large lobes of liver should be cut up and pureed a little at a time so
as not to burn out the motor or clog up the blade.
2.) Stir ingredients together in large bowl. This makes a thick,
sticky batter/dough - like brownies.
3.) Grease an 8 X 8 X 2 brownie pan with lard. The mixture does
not raise very much, so you need not allow for spillage in choosing a pan.
4.) Bake in a slow oven (325 - 350 degrees F) for about 45 min.
to 1 hour. It's done when the top cracks and the sides are pulled away
from the pan.
5.) Turn out to cool on a rack or wooden board.
6.) Cut into your preferred size with a long, sharp knife.
As there are no preservatives store in freezer, just to be
Label clearly! Humans may think this looks like their food.
The recipe is adaptable to anything the owner thinks/knows is suitable.
As long as the wet:dry ratio is maintained as a sticky thick, brownie-type
consistency, it will bake up to a very firm chew that makes a nice, easy
to feed without a dish, apres-le-workout snack. In fact, the flour/cereal
part can be totally substituted by more ground up dry dog food.
