DIY Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Treats
My dogs are my children and I just don’t feel right about having any sort of holiday festivities that they can’t enjoy too. Unfortunately, Halloween isn’t a holiday they can have fun with. I mean, they really don’t enjoy the absolutely ridiculous costumes I put on them quite as much as I do and they can’t enjoy any of the sugar overload that the rest of us revel in. So, I decided to find something they could enjoy; Peanut Butter Pumpkin dog treats! While this recipe isn’t my own (I found it online), I wanted to share it with you so your four legged friends could join in the Halloween fun too!
- 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup of PLAIN pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- cookie cutter (I used a bat shape)
- rolling pin
- baking sheets
- stand mixer or mixing bowl
- Optional: parchment paper (don’t use wax paper; it’s NOT the same thing)
Preheat your oven to 350*.
Next, combine the wheat flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon. I added all the ingredients to my stand mixer and used the dough attachment. If you don’t have a stand mixer just add all your ingredients to a mixing bowl and use a spoon to combine the ingredients. Then use your hands to work the ingredients into a dough.
Work your ingredients into a soft dough.
Use a rolling pin to flatten and stretch the dough out until it is about 1/2 inch thick.
Bake at 350* for 40 minutes.
Once the 40 minutes are up, place the treats out to cool. When they’re completely cool to the touch, they’re ready to share with your four legged friends.
