Mutt Meatballs

This great dog treat recipe originally came from Dog Treat Kitchen. However, I altered the recipe a bit to fit Cello’s dietary needs.

  • 1 1/2 cups dry dog food, ground coarse using a food processor (Cello eats Orijen – 6-Fish variety)
  • 1/2 cup organic buckwheat flour
  • 1 lb. organic ground bison meat
  • 1/4 cup organic honey
  • 1/8 cup organic applesauce, unsweetened



  1. Cook the bison, breaking apart into very small pieces. (I boiled the bison, saving the broth for other future recipes).
  2. Pour the dog food into a food processor or blender and grind to a coarse flour.
  3. Whisk together the coarse dog food and buckwheat flour in a medium bowl.
  4. Stir together the meat, honey and applesauce in a separate small bowl.
  5. Stir the meat mixture into the dry mixture until combined.
  6. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Form into meatballs – vary the size, or keep them all uniform.
  8. Serve fresh, or place in your freezer until frozen, approximately 2 hours.


Storing – This treat needs to be kept in the refrigerator or freezer. Keep in the freezer for up to 4 months.
