Pumpkin & Peanut Butter Puppy Treats

Delicious, inexpensive treats for your favorite canine!
If you don’t have pumpkin on hand, try substituting applesauce or any other pureed fruit or veggie! Don’t have whole wheat flour? Use regular all purpose in a pinch (add some oat flour for extra fiber!)
If you’re feeling adventurous, add some extra salt and cinnamon to make a tasty treat for the humans!

Ingredients

  • 2.5 c. Whole Wheat flour
  • 2 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • ½ c. canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
  • 2 TB peanut butter
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. salt

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Whisk together all ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Add water as needed to make dough workable (dough should be dry and stiff)
  • Roll dough to ¼ inch thickness on floured surface, place on baking sheet and cut into squares
    • Use cookie cutters to create fun shapes
    • Roll dough into ½ inch thick roll and slice into ½ inch pieces
  • Bake in preheated oven for about 40 minutes or until hardened.
  • If treats are crisp, store in airtight container; if treats are still soft inside, store in refrigerator to maintain freshness.
