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
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 c canned pumpkin
  • 3 Tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 c water
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. 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.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 25-35 minutes (depending upon size). You want them firm but still a little chewy.
