Chefs Note: The recipe below contains only 6 ingredients, most of which you probably have on hand. If you have fun cookie cutters, you can roll the dough on parchment and use those, or hand form into the shape of bones or hearts for a fun, rustic treat.
2.5 TB Natural Peanut Butter (avoid types with Xylitol or other sweeteners added)
1/2 Cup Canned Pumpkin
2.5 Cups Oat Flour*
2 Large Eggs
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1/2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
*This recipe contains flour. We use Oat Flour, but you can substitute Whole Wheat if your dog is not sensitive. When in doubt, consult with your vet.
- Preheat the oven to 350 F.
- In a large bowl, mix together eggs, cinnamon, pumpkin, flour, salt and peanut butter. This mixture will become stiff, dry and crumbly really quickly when first mixing.
- If needed, add a little bit of water to help moisten the ingredients, 1 TB at a time until you have a workable dough. You want it on the drier side for crisper cookies.
- If rolling dough, flour your countertop and roll the dough out to be about a ½ inch thick. Use your cookie cutters to cut out individual treats and place on a greased baking sheet. No need to keep a lot of space between as they don’t rise much. If hand forming, spoon out balls of dough, shape into bones, or as desired to about 1/2 thick.
- Bake for about 35-40 minutes or until hard. Cool completely before giving them to your pup to gobble up!
Store in airtight container or make a double batch and freeze. The PUP-kin treats are good to give your dog frozen too!
