I am the original submitter of this recipe ~ These dog biscuits require the use of Wheat flour which some dogs are sensitive to, if so its so easy to modify this recipe, simply substitute one cup of wheat flour for 1-1/4 cup of rye or oat flour or ¾ cup, rice, barley or potato flour.-22 Dec 2011

These Turkey-Cranberry Meatballs for Dogs Are the Perfect Thanksgiving Treat
Your dog looks longingly at your Thanksgiving feast every year, but most pet parents know that table scraps are a no-no. But that doesn’t mean they can’t take a bite out of the holiday, too! With ingredients that include cranberries (yes, they’re safe for dogs!), mouthwatering turkey and breadcrumbs, this fast and easy DIY dog treat—created by recipe developer, cookbook author and food blogger Alison Lewis—takes the staples of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner and turns them into a scrumptious treat for pups. It only takes about 20 minutes from start to finish (much less than that whole turkey that needs to go into your oven at the crack of dawn).
For a DIY dog treat that’s fit for the season, whip up these turkey-cranberry meatballs for dogs and prepare to be covered in thank-you kisses!
Many people don't recommend using white flour when making dog treats because it's not viewed as healthy, dogs may have an intolerance to this ingredient, and there are healthier alternatives.
If you are looking for an alternative to white flour, try one of the following:
Keep in mind that the texture of your treats are going to be different, so make a small test batch first when using these alternatives.

The list of ingredients may be long, but the preparation only takes a few minutes. First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease two cookie sheets.
Toss the cranberries into a blender or food processor and chop.
If you like, you can mix until they’re liquified but I liked the chunks…they looked a little like red ornaments on the Christmas tree shapes I used when cutting them.
Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl then add the melted butter, chopped cranberries, egg, and, slowly, the water a little bit at a time.
Mix the dough and knead on a lightly floured surface, rolling the dough to about 1/4-inch thick.
Use cookie cutters to cut into desired shapes (or make it super simple on yourself and use a pizza cutter to slice it in strips then squares…the dogs won’t mind!)
Place the treats on the baking sheet, leaving just a little room between each.
Pop the cookie sheets in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
At the end of baking, turn off the oven and allow the treats to cool in the oven for about three or four hours. This will make the treats harden (think Milk Bone consistency).
Once the treats have completely cooled, you can serve them or refrigerate them. Our dogs loved the crunchy consistency of the Cranberry Treats!
- 1 cup whole cranberries
1 cup cooked turkey (no bones)
3-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup water or broth as needed
If you’re cooking your turkey as you make the treats, you can use the broth in this recipe. In that case, you probably won’t need the tablespoon of olive oil. I was using frozen turkey so it was dry, and the recipe needed a little oil.
CHRISTMAS DINNER FOR DOGS RECIPE
A simple, yet super healthy, recipe for Christmas treats for your dog. It uses traditional Christmas ingredients that you’re likely to have in the pantry at Christmas time.
You’ll also need some cute cookie cutters! I used a tree shape and a bone shape.
- 375 gr turkey meat I use turkey mince, it blends better
- 50 gr cranberries You can use fresh or dried, I use dried
- 150 gr carrots Cooked
- 1 egg
- 175 gr flour I use gluten-free rice flour, but you could use normal wheat flour, coconut flour or oatmeal
- Blend all the ingredients in a food blender until mixed into a dough. If the dough is too sticky, add more flour – different types of flour used will affect the extent of dryness of the dough
- Flour a surface and roll out the dough to around 5mm thickness
- Using a cookie cutter, cut out shapes and pop them onto the baking tray
- Cook in the oven for 20-25 minutes at 160degC (fan-assisted)
- To make sure that the treats do not go off, you will need to dry them out after cooking.
- The easiest way to do this is to pop them in a dehydrator for a few hours: I dried them for 8 hours at 75degC / 170deg F. The time needed depends on how thick you rolled them out and the fat content of the turkey used, so yours may need more, or less, time than mine.
- If you don’t have a dehydrator, no worries. Just leave the oven on at its lowest setting and the baking tray in the coolest part of the oven. You may need to leave the oven door slightly ajar if it gets too warm. Cooking on a low heat like this will dehydrate the cookies.
