Wild Turkey Pemmican Bars (Natural Protein Bars)

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. 

Makes nine 2" x 4" half inch deep bars

- Ingredients -
1 lb turkey, cubed
1 cup cranberries
1 cup almonds, roughly chopped (we used our Kitchen Kit Chopper)
½ cup coconut oil, heated just long enough to liquefy
¼ cup honey
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon powdered ginger

- Tools -
Weston Meat Grinder
Weston Manual Kitchen Kit
Weston Dehydrator


Grind the turkey through the fine plate of your Meat Grinder.


Combine all ingredients in the Kitchen Kit with the chopper inserted. Turn the handle until all ingredients are well mixed.


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.


Dehydrate at 155°F for 8 hours, or until the meat is completely dried (make sure there is no moisture in the center).


Enjoy right away, or vacuum seal and snack for up to one month.
