Tuesday Cook Off ~ Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Treats

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Treats

This week on our blog post Tuesday Cook Off we are focusing on our dogs.   Since it’s fall season and our house loves pumpkin anything, my youngest decided it would be nice if our two dogs could have pumpkin dog treats.  Now, if I was just looking for our black pug I would have probably gone to the store and picked out some pumpkin dog treats at Petsmart or Pet Club.  Pugs have stomachs of steel.  At least the pugs I have owned do 🙂  But since we have a pit bull also who are known to have very sensitive skin, I had to do some looking around and decided homemade was the best way for our pit bull.    Our pit bull is on a grain free diet and it’s very hard to find treats that don’t make him itch.   Did I forget to mention he is also he is a white pit bull which makes him even more sensitive to…everything!!  But I still love him to pieces!

Recipe from My Baking Addiction

Yields: about 24 treats

Ingredients: 

1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
2 eggs
1/2 cup oats (optional if your dog is on a grain free diet)
3 cups whole wheat, brown rice, or gluten free flour
3 Tbsp of all natural peanut butter

Directions: 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In small bowl, stir together the flour, oats, and cinnamon
In a separate large bowl, whisk together the eggs, pumpkin and peanut butter until combined. Stir wet ingredients into dry.
Pour onto a floured surface and roll dough out to 1/2 thick. Cut out using cookie cutter. The dough will be a little sticky, a dusting of flour for your hands and the rolling pin will help! Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until golden brown.
Place on cooling racks and let cool thoroughly. They will harden as they cool.
