TURKEY AND OATMEAL MUFFINS

 

TURKEY AND OATMEAL MUFFINS - from Joanne
    *see "Rave Reviews" below recipe


NOTE:
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 recipe.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Put in a bowl 4 cups old-fashioned oatmeal (not instant) and 1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix thoroughly in another bowl
1 cup grated carrots (on small grate) OR grated sweet potatoes OR grated yams
3 eggs
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 from recipe)

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 degree
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.

Enjoy!!!

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 ingredients.

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 muffins treats!!!!!

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.

Thanks

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 out.

Love to all,

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 recipe!
