TURKEY AND OATMEAL MUFFINS
TURKEY AND OATMEAL MUFFINS - from
*see "Rave Reviews" below recipe
Some dogs may have an allergic reaction to eating turkey, which could cause
seizures. If you are concerned about using ground turkey, then you may
substitute the same amount of ground chicken or low fat ground meat in the
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Put in a bowl 4 cups old-fashioned oatmeal (not instant) and 1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix thoroughly in
1 cup grated carrots (on small grate) OR grated sweet potatoes OR grated yams
1 to 1 1/4 pounds of fresh ground raw turkey
1 TBSP Olive Oil (If using ground meat instead of turkey, eliminate Olive Oil
Keep adding oatmeal slowly to wet mixture of carrots, ground turkey, eggs, etc,
and mix until all the dry ingredients are mixed in well. The mixture might be a
little "wet" but when baked the muffins are firm.
For a small dog, fill mini muffin pans 1/2 way and pat down. For a big dog,
fill mini muffin pans to the top and pat down. Bake in the center of a 350
preheated oven for 20 minutes (or more if needed to make sure they are "done").
This recipe will make dozens of muffins. Because there are no preservatives
in them it is a good idea to put them in the freezer and only keep enough in
the fridge to last 3 days.
I must tell you
that I took your recipe out the other night and made your Turkey and Oatmeal
Muffins. What a miracle!!!! I have never seen such
fine attention from my four girls as I did even when I was whipping up the
I had four "velcro" dogs who were stuck to me the entire evening....waiting and
hoping for another morsel to be rationed out. So, needless to say the muffins
were a very BIG HIT !!! I'm glad I only have 2 big dogs
and 2 little dogs, because if I had 4 big dogs, they
would shake down the walls of the house when they knew I was getting out the
Robin & Missy
Emma, Ellie and sassy little Sadie
These were a HUGE hit! Every morning around 10AM, I notice the dogs line up at
the refrigerator door for a muffin. It wasn't bad when it was only Trooper in
line, but now the neighbor dogs are coming too, so I'm feeding a big group, and
I can't disappoint them.

Today I fixed the amended dog treats that you suggested for George, who has
liver disease. If you remember, you had emailed the turkey treats that Asia
loved so much to the list.
You suggested I use cod instead of turkey and leave out the olive oil. Cod is
very difficult to find here so I used the next best, I thought. I looked at all
the fish and found flounder that has 2gms of fat and no sat. fat. Think that
will be okay??
Needless to say, George is in heaven. His little ole eyes lit up when I gave him
his new treat! Thank you so very much for taking your precious time to help us
Love to all,
Yvonne and George (the low flying missile that does nose art on windows)
Epi since 1993, liver diet. Down to 45 mgs of Pb and all is well.
I made the turkey and oatmeal muffins for Bailey last week and he LOVED them
more than any other treat I have ever given him!
I used them in between seizures
over the weekend to try and get his blood sugar up as well. Thanks for the
Kelly and Bailey
