Ingredients

  • 2 Eggs
  • I cup pumpkin
  • 4 tbsp Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 cups wheat flour
  1. Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl. Mix well.
  2. Once mixed, roll out and cut with a cookie cutter. Since Christmas is around the corner, make snowflakes or snowman shapes! Put on a cookie sheet and bake for 40 minutes. The finished product should be completely dried and ready to eat! If your dog, Or kids, do not like pumpkin, try adding more peanut butter to substitute the pumpkin.
  3. Finally, give them to your pup! I find that these make really good training treats. My english bulldog loves them. I make them for her every month. I keep mine in a ziplock baggie inside of an container. It keeps them a little longer.

Have you ever made your own dog treats?

      No reason why the dog can't enjoy the holiday festivities too. Actually these sound good enough for people food. Great hub, keep cranking them out!

      Pumpkin is very healthy for doggy digestion. My dog, however, has to be on a low-fat diet so she won't get pancreatitis again, so the peanut butter is out. Also, she's allergic to eggs and wheat! However, I discovered buckwheat flour, which isn't a true flour and has no gluten like wheat. It's dark-colored and has a nutty flavor. (It's actually made from a grass or grass seed, I think.) I add both cinnamon and ginger to the pumpkin. Some organic unsweetened applesauce helps the dog biscuits hold together. Then I twice-cook them very slowly like making biscotti. She LOVES them! Sometimes I add some mashed blueberries which makes them smell good enough in the oven that humans want to taste them (but I don't). Haha.

      I started making them because a healthy version of buckwheat dog biscuits(several flavors, including pumpkin) that a year ago cost $8 for a small bag now costs nearly $15 for a smaller bag, yet I can make a cookie sheet full--which fills up the treat jar-- for less than $4. That's a no-brainer.

      Your dog looks super happy, Abby, and probably is because her human 'mom' is good to her by making healthy treats.
