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)
- ½ c rolled oats
- 2 eggs
- ¾ c canned pumpkin
- 3 tablespoon natural peanut butter
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ c water
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Combine all ingredients in stand mixer with paddle attachment. Mix until ingredients combined. Flour work surface. Roll dough to ¼″ 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.
