When it comes to my furbabies, giving the best of everything is pretty important to me! That includes their treats… so that means that sometimes I have to make those treats myeslf! They LOVE their homemade dog treats! Especially when I make their favorite recipe, flourless turkey and sweet potato treats!
This homemade dog treats recipe only takes 4 ingredients and mixes up pretty quickly. Before you know it your own furry friends will be gobbling these down and giving you all sorts of extra snuggles!
Homemade Dog Treats: Flourless Turkey and Sweet Potato Recipe
½ lb ground turkey
1 sweet potato, cooked and mashed
2 eggs, beaten
1 c rolled oats
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Combine very well
3. With an ice cream scoop, scoop out small scoops of the turkey mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Flatten with a fork
4. Bake in the oven for 25 – 30 minutes or until the treats are cooked through
5. Cool and store in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
After baking the treats, lower the temperature on the oven to 190 or the lowest possible setting.
Dehydrate the treats for 8 hours to make them dry and crunchy.
Again, store in the fridge, but they will last much longer if they are dehydrated thoroughly. Keep no longer than 4 weeks.
We prefer the second method. Makes the treats last longer, and since Bitly and Buffer are smaller dogs, they only need 2 or 3 treats a day.
These days, the dogs KNOW when I open up the treats container… they come scrambling from all corners of the house the second they hear the air seal pop on the containter we store these in. Buffer pretty much skids through the living room and kitchen, sliding to a stop at my feet and immediately sitting. Its pretty hilarious, and one of these days I might try to capture it on film. It would definitely be worth sharing if I get lucky enough to not drop my phone when she crashes into my legs.
Whats your favorite way to treat your favorite pet?
