Homemade Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Doggie Treats

in Pets by

Yield: About 2 dozen small treats  |  Cook Time: 30-40 minutes

Ingredients
1 cup pumpkin puree, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup oats (or if your dog is on a grain free diet, add an extra 1/4 cup grain free flour), 3 cups whole wheat flour, brown rice flour, or gluten free flour (we recommend Deya’s Gluten Free Flour), 3 tbsp. of all natural peanut butter, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon* (optional)

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.

Notes: *Cinnamon is fine to use in recipes for dogs, however do not use a pumpkin spice blend or anything that could contain nutmeg. It is toxic to dogs and even in small amounts can make them sick.
