Turkey Jerky

Servings: 5 Total time: 6 hours


  • 1 lb. ground turkey, 99% fat-free

  • 2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 cup pecans, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce


  1. Preheat the oven to 170°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Blend the soy sauce, pecans, garlic and onion powder, black pepper, and applesauce in a food processor. Put the mixture in a large mixing bowl, and mix in the turkey with hands.

  3. Place the mixture between two sheets of parchment paper. Using a rolling pin, roll the mixture out into a 10-inch square.

  4. Cut the square into 10 bars and arrange the bars in a single layer on the lined baking sheet (about 1 inch apart so they don’t touch).

  5. Bake bars for 5 hours, then flip them and bake for an additional 45 minutes.

  6. Let the bars cool before placing them in snack bags and storing them in the fridge. Enjoy!


More Flavor: Try different spices, like smoked paprika, dry thyme, or sage.

Leftovers: Jerky can be refrigerated for 3-4 days safely.
