Hi !

We tried your recipe but the balls were hard as stone (even the dog could not eat them). We used olive oil instead of the sunflower oil, is it because of that ?

Thanks xxx

Maybe they were over-mixed. Developing the gluten too much will lead to tough, not tender, baked goods. I don't think it was the substitution; I use olive oil all the time in bread doughs like this and it doesn't drastically change the texture.

@Madame_soleil : About how long do you mix the dough in this recipe, and what's the texture supposed to be like for the properly developed dough (smooth and satiny, or more shaggy/rough-looking like a drop biscuit)?

I have a fluffy Maine Coon mix who absolutely loves tuna, but she only gets it as a treat because of the fat content (perfectly fine for our bodies, but not so much for hers). I plan on making these for her as a Christmas present.

I just mix them with a spoon by hand, not for to long.

They have to be soft; almost like bread... I never use olive oil; maybe that is the reason.

I am going to have to try this on my cats. Are you using tuna in brine or oil?

I am curious as to why you added parsley, though?

You could probably use chick pea flour I think.
