Recipe - Wild Turkey Pemmican Bars (Natural Protein Bars)

From the Weston Kitchen

7+ hours
Cook Time


  • 1 pound turkey, cubed
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 1 cup almonds, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, heated just long enough to liquify
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon powdered ginger


These homemade protein bars are the perfect companion for backpackers and hunters, and an equally satisfying snack for the family. All it takes to make a solid pemmican is meat, dried fruit, nuts, and fat. Traditional recipes use tallow - we used coconut oil with great success. 

  1. Grind the turkey through the fine plate of your meat grinder.
  2. Chop all ingredients and mix them in a bowl.
  3. Place a piece of parchment paper over a dehydrator tray. Pour the pemmican onto the center of the paper, then use a rolling pin to evenly spread the pemmican to the edges of the tray.
  4. Dehydrate at 155°F for 8 hours, or until the meat is completely dried (make sure there is no moisture in the center).
  5. Enjoy right away, or vacuum seal and snack for up to one month.
