Homemade Pumpkin Apple Dog Treats – healthy homemade treats for you pup! Only simple ingredients and so easy.
If you weren’t aware, I’m kind of a crazy dog lady.
And by “kind of”, I mean I’m pretty much the craziest dog lady that ever lived.
I want ALL THE DOGS.
I was actually playing around with starting a dog blog and then I realized that all I really wanted to do was post homemade treat recipes and pictures of our monthly Barkbox and that I really have nothing to say that requires a separate dog blog.
Don’t worry, I bought the URL just in case. You never know when I’ll get a wild hair.
So anyway, I’ve been really into making homemade stuff for the dogs recently. I got super inspired when I realized our H-E-B has a bulk bins section of treats. With strawberry biscotti.
Yeah. For dogs.
I whipped these Pumpkin Apple Dog Treats up yesterday for the girls and about the time I pulled them out of the oven, my husband was all “What are those? They smell good. Seriously though, what are they? For the dogs? Seriously?”
He came very close to trying one.
Both dogs gave them rave reviews which is saying something because Clem is weirdly picky about treats.
- Flour – I used all-purpose flour but you can use whole wheat
- Baking powder
- Diced apple
- Pumpkin – make sure it is pumpkin puree (pumpkin should be the only ingredient) and no pumpkin pie filling
How To Make Pumpkin Apple Dog Treats
- Whisk together flour and baking powder to remove lumps
- Add diced apple, pumpkin, egg, and water and stir until all dry ingredients are moistened
- Roll the dough on a lightly floured surface and use bone cookie cutters to cut out treats; transfer to parchment paper lined baking sheet
- Bake about 30 minutes depending on how thick you cut them; you want them crisp
- Cool completely on a wire rack before serving to your pup
How Long Are Homemade Dog Treats Good For?
These will last about a week in an airtight container in the fridge. Make sure to store them in an airtight container.
If your dog is picky and wants room temperature treats, they will last about 3 days on the counter. Make sure you’re using an airtight container.
Can You Freeze Homemade Dog Treats?
Yes! If this recipe makes more treats than your dog will eat within a week, pop them in a freezer ziploc bag (squeeze all the air out) and they will last about 3 months in the freezer.
Defrost them in the fridge before serving to your pup.
