A jar of these homemade dog treats would make a great gift, add a copy of the recipe and a cookie cutter tied on with raffia and it’s a gift that keeps on giving.
Homemade Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats Ingredients:
2 cups whole wheat flour
½ cup quick cook oats
½ tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. peanut butter
½ cup canned pumpkin
2-3 Tbsp. milk
Homemade Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350°
Combine eggs, pumpkin, flour, peanut butter, oats and salt in a medium bowl. Add milk 1 Tbsp. at a time until dough is workable but not sticky. Roll dough to ½” thickness. Cut out with cookie cutters.
Lay treats on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Bake in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes. I cook less as my pups don’t care for very hard treats.
Allow to cool completely and store in an airtight container for up to a month.
