This easy, quick, and healthy dog snack recipe comes from my aunt who lives on a farm and makes her own dog food. I make it often for my favorite rescue dogs and other furry friends--a jar of this makes a great gift for a friend adopting a new dog. The kitties agree with my dog that these snacks are delicious. Make a batch to store in the fridge, and another for the freezer!

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix together turkey, flour, oatmeal, carrots, eggs, and olive oil in a bowl. Let sit until liquid has been absorbed, about 10 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease two 12-cup muffin tins.

  • Spoon turkey mixture into the prepared muffin cups.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes. Let cool on a rack.

Cook's Notes:

You can use regular oatmeal instead of instant oatmeal, if you'd like.

You can also make these on lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheets. Form dough like little cookies and bake for about 10 minutes.

Store in a sealed jar in the refrigerator, or wrap well and store in freezer.

These really are quick and easy and my doggos love em! I do think 2 cups of whole wheat flour is too much though. I was unable to get the mixture to come together because it was too dry and crumbly--added a bit of water and that fixed the problem but I would probably only use 1 cup next time. I made the first batch into dog bone shapes and while it looked cute the mixture was a touch too sticky to cut easily--so I made the rest of them into small round cookies. I ended up getting 49 decent sized cookies for my dogs (who are rather large) so keep that in mind depending on how big your dogs are caz you might want to make them even smaller. They also needed to bake for about 18-22 minutes. Overall the "judges" were very happy with these so looks like we'll be making them again! Read More

I've made these a couple of times. Dogs love them! Several friends have asked for the recipe. I make them in mini cupcake pans. Break them up into treat size pieces as I use them. I vac-pac most of them. Read More
