What better way to ring in November than with a collection of Thanksgiving inspired dog treats - all with yummy turkey!
Check out some of our favorites below:
Pumpkin Cranberry Turkey Dog Treats
2 1/2 cups oat flour
2 cups unblanched almond flour
1/4 cup dried organic cranberries
1/4 cup turkey baby food (equivalent to one small 2.5 oz jar)
1/4 cup roasted pumpkin seeds
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup turkey bone broth
1 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
- Preheat oven to 350F. Line baking tray with silicone baking mat.
- Sieve flours into large bowl and mix well using wooden spoon.
- Roughly chop pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries and stir into flour mixture.
- Mix pumpkin puree, baby food, coconut oil and bone broth in small bowl. Then stir wet ingredients into dry, mixing well with wooden spoon.
- Use your hands to form dough and knead well for one or two minutes.
- Turn dough out onto lightly floured wax paper and flatten with your hands.
- Roll dough out to 1/4" thickness using lightly floured rolling pin.
- Cut dough into treat shapes using cookie cutter and bake at 350F for 25 minutes.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to one week
Mini Turkey Loaf Muffins
1 pound lean ground turkey
1/2 cup pure pumpkin puree
1/2 cup finely ground almond flour
1/2 cup frozen peas and carrots
1 large egg
- Preheat oven to 350ºF and grease two mini muffin tins with coconut oil. Set aside.
- Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl.
- Using a fork, mix all ingredients together until thoroughly combined.
- Spoon mixture into muffin tins.
- Bake for 20 minutes.
Sweet Potato and Leftover Turkey Homemade Dog Treats
1/2 cup PLAIN mashed, cooked sweet potatoes
3/4 cup water
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 cups finely chopped, cooked turkey or chicken
2 cups whole wheat flour or white whole wheat flour
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a medium bowl, combine sweet potatoes, water, and egg, stirring until thoroughly incorporated. Add chicken and flour and stir again until combined. Batter will be very thick and sticky.
- To make rectangular biscuits (see notes below on how to make round "drop" biscuits), use a rubber spreader to spread the dough evenly onto a parchment-lined baking sheet to form a rectangle (approximately 10" x 14") at about 1/2" thickness.
- Use a knife or pizza cutter to score the dough into rectangles of whatever size you'd like. (When I make these as shown in my photos, I score 8 rows x 12 rows to equal 96 treats.)
- Bake for about 30 minutes, until the dog treats are lightly golden brown.
- Cool completely and then break along the score lines or use a knife/pizza cutter to cut along the score lines.
- Store in the refrigerator or (for longer storage) in zippered freezer bags in the freezer (thaw before serving).
