These pumpkin peanut butter dog treats are a fun, healthy, seasonally-appropriate way to show your furry friends how much you care!
These three ingredient pumpkin peanut butter dog treats are a great way to share the fun of the season with your favourite furry friend! I’ve been wanting to try making my own dog treats for quite a while now and last weekend we finally made it happen. I’m so glad we did because honestly, it was really easy to do and when I saw how much Chuckers really (really!) enjoyed these treats, I knew I’d be making these many more times in the future. I thought I might have trouble getting these treats to hold together, especially because I was trying to keep the ingredient list really simple, but they actually ended up being really easy to roll out and to cut!
The Ingredients You’ll Need
–Natural peanut butter (the kind you need to stir before using it)
-Flour of some kind (I used spelt, but whole wheat works too)
You’ll also need cookie cutters or at least some kind of shape-making device like a cup. A dog bone cookie cutter is really cute of course, but totally not necessary. I promise your dog won’t care what shapes you use! 🙂 I also used a pumpkin cookie cutter because these are pumpkin dog treats, but obviously that’s more for my own entertainment than anything else.
You’ll need to stir all the ingredients together until they form a ball…
Roll the dough out…
Then cut your shapes out and bake them until they’re dry and crunchy!
I’ve been asked by so many people to share printable versions of my recipes so today I’m trying something new! You can find the full instructions for the recipe below. Just click on the little “print” icon to the right of the recipe if you’d like to print this one out!
Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats
An easy treat for fall that your dog will love!
- 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
- 1 cup flour (I used spelt, but whole wheat is good too)
Preheat your oven to 300F.
Add all three ingredients to a medium sized bowl and stir to combine. You'll probably need to get your hands in there in the final stages of stirring. In the end, you should have a nice ball of dough to work with.
Working on a lightly floured surface, roll your dough out until it's a little less than 1/4 inch thick.
Cut out your treats using a dog bone cookie cutter or any other fun shape.
Place your treats on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes.
Allow the treats to cool completely before you feed them to your dog!
Chuckers is usually only slightly excited for regular store-bought dog treats but he goes absolutely crazy for these! As soon as I get the container out, he just perks right up! Watch the results for yourself! 🙂
Store these cookies exactly the same way that you’d store human cookies.
Let me know what you think of the new printable recipe format and also what your dog thinks of these pumpkin peanut butter dog treats! 🙂
