Today’s Dog Treat Cookie Recipe

TURKEY AND CRANBERRY BITES – Wheat Free
Did you know?

Buckwheat flour is NOT WHEAT. It’s not even a grain. Buckwheat is one of the best sources of high quality, easily absorbed, protein in the plant kingdom. It is naturally gluten free and can be used to cook or bake for those that are sensitive or intolerant to wheat gluten.
Turkey is actually an excellent low fat source of quality protein for dogs. Turkey is also notably high in tryptophan (which produces serotonin and plays an important role in strengthening the immune system), selenium, B vitamins, phosphorus, choline and zinc.
Cranberries are rich in vitamins including A, B1, B2, C, and many nutrients. They are full of minerals and polyphenol antioxidants, which can benefit the cardiovascular system, immune system and even act as an anti-cancer agent in your dog or cat. Cranberries also contain nutrients that fight plaque from forming on your dog or cat’s teeth. Cranberry nutrients are best known for preventing recurring urinary tract infections (UTI). The nutrients combat the bacteria from your pet’s digestive tract that can invade their urinary tract and possibly cause infection.
Turkey Cranberry
TURKEY AND CRANBERRY BITES
1½ cups Buckwheat flour
3/4 cup cooked Turkey mince (ground) – Organic Turkey Mince – no skin/bones
1/2 cup chopped dried Cranberries
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1/4 cup Lactose Free Milk – or water
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tbsp. Honey
Preheat oven to 180° C (350° F) and line cookie tray with parchment paper.
In a large bowl add Buckwheat flour, Cranberries and Cinnamon and combine.
Add the remaining ingredients to the dry mixture and mix thoroughly to combine (you will need to use your hands for this step, until it comes together).
Turn dough on to a heavily Buckwheat floured surface and pat down dough to roughly flatten.
Flip dough over and pat out again, flattening to about 3/4 inch and forming a dough circle.
Pat down or roll (gently) the dough to about 1/4 – 1/2 inch thickness and using a cookie cutter or a sharp knife, cut out shapes. Place shapes on cookie tray.
Repeat process of pat/roll, cut and place until all dough is used.
Bake for about 18 – 20 minutes, depending on your oven.
Remove tray from oven, flip the cookies over and leave on cookie tray on stove top for
5 – 10 minutes.
Remove cookies from cookie tray and place on wire cooking rack to cool completely.
Yield: about 44 small to medium (depending on cookie cutter/shape) sized cookies.
Storage, Refrigeration and Freezing instructions:
Store in zip lock bags or air tight containers in your refrigerator.
Allow to come to room temperature before feeding.
Home-baked dog treats contain no preservatives, so they can mold or spoil the same as home-baked people cookies/cakes do. Other variables, ingredients/moisture content of the treat and climate conditions will also determine the storage time.
Refrigeration will prolong the life of home-made dog treats.
Freeze for up to 4 months – Always allow treats to thaw completely before feeding.

Feed these Turkey and Cranberry Bites only as a treat.
Treats should not make up more than 10% of your pet’s diet.
As with any treat, always provide fresh water after feeding.

Be sure to check the recipe for any known foods or ingredients your pet may be allergic to. If in doubt, always check with your Vet.

    I love making dog and cat treats! I thinks personally most dogs that I’ve made homemade treats for have preferred them over store bought. My cats are a little more pickier, but that’s ok. 🙂 Love how all of your’s are always so healthy!

      Thanks so much for reading and commenting. I get so much enjoyment out of baking healthy treats for the 3m’s. I have some cat treat recipes too, I’ve been thinking of getting the newest addition to our family, our kitten, Meg to become a taste tester. I would be great if she would eat some home baked ‘healthy’ treats. Thanks again for reading and commenting.

        I know what you mean! I think sometimes I have more fun making their treats then our own goodies! I will definitely check out your cat treats. I’m always for something new. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
