Super Simple Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Treat Recipe

pumpkin dog treats blogSince chocolate and other Halloween goodies are strictly off-limits for dogs, you might want to whip up a batch of these canine-friendly treats! There’s only three ingredients and a whole lot of flavor in these festive treats.

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • ½ cup Peanut Butter
  • 1 ¾ cups whole wheat flour

Start by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Stir together the peanut butter and pumpkin puree. Add the flour and mix until the dough isn’t sticky. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment paper. Get creative and use your favorite cookie cutters to cut the dough into shapes. Bake these yummy treats for 7-10 minutes and be sure to let them cool completely before feeding them to Fido!

Happy Howl-o-ween!

    What temp are these treats baked at? How thick to roll out the dough?

    • VetDepot October 23, 2014, 9:23 am

      Hello! About a 1/4 inch should be a good thickness for the dough. Bake at 350 degrees F.

    Can I use white flour if I don’t have wheat flour on hand? I want to make it right away.

      Hi Dee. Yes, you can substitute the flour of your choice!

    In the summer, I use peanut butter, pumpkin and plain yogurt to make pupsicles for my dogs. Mix it up, put it in paper dixie cups or popsicle maker, push a dog cookie into the middle and freeze! The combo of pumpkin and pnut butter is something dogs go nuts for!

    could you add some oatmeal? would you use 1 minute oatmeal?

    • VetDepot October 23, 2014, 10:50 am

      Hi Wendy! Adding some oatmeal would probably be fine, just be sure it doesn’t contain any sugar.

    Can you use oats instead of flour?

    • VetDepot October 23, 2014, 11:14 am

      Hi Linda. Unfortunately, we’ve never tried doing that. If you decide to experiment, please let us all know how they turn out! Best of luck.

    I will make those this weekend, but I am going to use brown rice flour instead of the wheat.

    Just made a batch and my pup LOVES them! How long do they keep for (fridge, room temp)? Thank you for sharing this recipe 🙂

    Wow, very simple treat recipe and I know I can do it. Instead of giving candies and chocolate, I will just bake this one and give it to my Max. Thanks for sharing.

    What can I use in place of flour? My dog needs grain free?

    • VetDepot December 2, 2014, 11:52 am

      Hi Sarah. We apologize for the delay in response. We haven’t tried it yet, but you might try almond flour or brown rice flour if your dog is sensitive to wheat. If you decide to experiment, please let us know how the treats turn out! Best of luck.
