If you’re anything like me, your pet is an important part of your family which means he or she gets presents on holidays. Normally I buy our Duke a couple toys and a bag of treats but sometimes even dogs need a homemade treat that was baked with extra love.
(Yes, I found a way to force pumpkin on even the dog. It’s good for their digestive system. Who knew!)
Duke loves them and while I’m too much of a chicken to try them, they’re bound to be good with pumpkin and peanut butter!
Pumpkin & Peanut Butter Doggy Cookies
2 c whole wheat flour, plus flour for dusting
1/2 c rolled oats
3/4 c canned pumpkin
3 Tbsp natural peanut butter
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c water
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Combine all ingredients in stand mixer with paddle attachment. Mix until ingredients combined. Flour work surface. Roll dough to 1/4″ thickness. Cut into 1″ to 1.5″ pieces.
Bake in preheated oven for 25-35 minutes (depending upon size). You want them firm but still a little chewy.
