Pumpkin & Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

Our sweet dog, Jenny, loves a good treat. I thought it would be fun to make some homemade treats for her. I found a ton of recipes for dog biscuits, but this one caught my eye. Plus I had all the ingredients in the pantry, so it won.

They were so simple to make, and the cost was minimal. Dog treats aren’t cheap, so this might very well be something I do often. Here are the ingredients & instructions:

3 cups brown rice flour (I used regular white flour, it seemed to be fine for my dog)
1 can unsweetened pumpkin puree
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (use natural peanut butter for a healthier treat)
2 large eggs
A pinch of salt

1 Preheat oven to 350º F.
2 In a large bowl, mix the pumpkin, eggs and peanut butter until smooth. Add the flour and salt. Mix well. (I am so thankful I have a Kitchen Aid for these types of recipes!)
3. Sprinkle flour on your counter. Place the dough on the counter and knead it into a ball. Roll the dough out with a rolling pin, to about 1/2 inch thick. Use cookie cutters to make the biscuits. (I found the bone shaped cutter at Walmart.) Re-roll and repeat, until you’ve used all of the dough. (I made indentations in the biscuits – see photos – with the back end of a small paint brush, you could also use a fork.)
4 Place the biscuits onto a baking sheet with parchment paper. The biscuits can be placed close together, as they won’t get any bigger. Bake for 20 minutes. Flip each biscuit over and place back in the oven. Bake for another 15-20 minutes or until completely dry. Let cool before giving your dog a treat. Woof!

Jenny knew I was up to something, so she was awfully good about sitting still, waiting for her treat…

Wait for it…

Yes! She got it. Well deserved. She “woofed” that treat right down, I’d say these were a huge success!

    What a lucky girl! Bentley goes crazy for our 2-Ingredient dog treats, but they’re healthy-ish. These sound much more fun, and I have some pumpkin I’ve been trying to find something to do with!

    What is your 2-ingredient treat recipe? I’d be interested in trying that too! This isn’t too unhealthy – I actually used natural peanut butter, which makes it a little healthier! Jenny didn’t notice the difference. 🙂


    […] * * On a side note, if you were wondering how Jenny has been enjoying the Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Treats I made for her last week, she LOVES them. As a matter of fact, she might have an addiction […]

    Use the right stuff everybody. — “Recently, some peanut butter manufacturers switched to using the sweetener xylitol. Xylitol is a sugar substitute often found in sugar-free products like chewing gum, toothpaste, breath mints, chewable vitamins and baked goods. It is safe for people, but toxic to dogs. … Xylitol poisoning is easy to avoid.Feb 27, 2017”
