Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats

May 15, 2016

It is hard to believe that my best friend Cocoa turns 18-years-old today!  I am so lucky to have had him in my life for so many years.  In preparation for our birthday party for him, I tried my hand at homemade dog treats.  Read on for the recipe!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • rolling pin
  • cookie cutter
  • baking sheet

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

In an electric mixer, combine pumpkin purée, peanut butter and eggs- beat on medium-high until well combined.  Gradually add 1 1/2 cups flour at a low speed, adding more as needed until dough is no longer sticky.

Flour clean surface and knead the dough.

Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out about 1/4 inch and cut out desired shapes.

I ordered this cookie cutter off Amazon that I was able to customize with my dogs name!

Place on baking sheet when complete and bake for 20-25 minutes until edges are golden brown.  I really lathered on the flour here because my cookie cutter was getting stuck a lot from the peanut butter!

Let cool and begin taste test.

These treats were so easy to make, contained few ingredients, and my dogs loved them!  Whip up a batch for your fur babies or bake some for a dog lover!
