West Coast Canine Life PUPPY Muffin Mix Recipe

Most puppies do well on three meals a day up until 6 months of age. Please follow this recipe as closely as possible for the first 6 months. After 6 months of age, switch your puppy to West Coast Canine Life REGULAR Premix which is formulated for adult dogs. After 6 months of age you may want to consider using different proteins and vegetables for variation. After 6 months of age most puppies do well on two meals a day.

Please read all instructions thoroughly. It is important to follow the recipe as closely as possible.



  • 1 cup minced raw green beans

  • ½ cup minced raw carrot

  • 1 minced red apple (Red Delicious apple is our first choice)

  • 1 raw egg

  • ½ cup PURE unsweetened cranberry juice (e.g., R.W. Knudsen Family or Bremner’s)

  • ½ cup organic sunflower or safflower oil, or Extra Virgin Olive Oil (the oil from the first pressing)

  • 2 pounds raw boneless ground chicken or turkey

  • ½ to 1 cup filtered water only if needed, after all the other ingredients have been mixed together. The mixture should resemble cookie dough.



  • Preheat oven to 350F (180C).

  • Lightly grease 24 medium size muffin tins.

  • Combine all the ingredients except the water and the Premix, in a large bowl. When thoroughly blended, add 5 cups of Premix and mix well. Add water if needed, to make the mixture resemble the consistency of cookie dough that can be rolled in your hands without sticking.

  • Roll 24 even sized balls between your hands and pop them into greased muffin tins, or place the on lined cookie sheets. Press the muffins down slightly. Scoring with an X, allows for the muffins to be broken into four even quarters.

  • Bake at 350F (180C) 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Muffins should feel moist when cool, and should not stick, when removing from pans. Do not over bake!

  • Remove from oven and cool thoroughly on racks before storing in airtight containers or freezer bags . Keep enough food in the refrigerator for up to 3 or 4 days and freeze the rest for up to 2 months.


Food Processor Method:

Combine raw boneless meat or fish, raw vegetables, apple, oil, egg and cranberry juice in a food processor. Pour the well-blended ingredients into a large mixing bowl.  Add the Premix and blend well.  Add filtered water if needed, so the mixture resembles the consistency of cookie dough that can be rolled in your hands without sticking.
