As the perfect kick start to the Fall season, Mom and I decided to reward our furry friends with these easy and delicious pumpkin dog treats! Our pups loved them! We even let them do taste testing while making the batter. They waited eagerly in the kitchen while we were baking their yummy treats and letting them cool.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup all purpose flour
  • 1 Cup coconut flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 Cups pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together.
  3. Adjust the flours with the eggs to get a dough consistency that will easily roll out.
  4. Shape the dough into a ball.
  5. Roll out your dough to 1/4 inch thickness. We recommend rolling it out onto a floured board.
  6. Cut out your desired shapes and remove the cutouts to your oiled baking sheets.
  7. Bake about 20 minutes and then turn off the oven and let them sit until the dog treats harden.
  8. This might take an hour or so. You don't have to let them get really hard if they will be used quickly (In a day or two).

Pumpkin Dog Treats

The leaves are starting to turn a tinge of brown, the air is getting a bit crispier, and the smell of fall is beginning to scent the air.

I love this time of year! it’s one of my favorites. Nothing is cozier than a warm sweater, pumpkin spice latte’s, and the delicious smells of baking coming from the kitchen.

Our doggies love this time of year too. The cooler weather is perfect for walks and games of Fetch. And when we come back to the house they get a yummy treat. Every time!

Pumpkin is healthy for dogs:

I read up on pumpkin for dogs and found that it is surprisingly high in fiber and provides a great tummy soother for dogs. You may be hard pressed to find a dog that is willing to eat fresh pumpkin straight out of the can, but I bet your dog would chow down fast on these delicious pumpkin treats!

Did I mention how easy these are to make? hard, difficult, and time-consuming are not part of my vocabulary. I tend to gravitate towards lazy and simple crafting and DIY projects. So if you are looking for easy and quick projects, look no further!

Homemade Pumpkin Dog Treats Recipe:

Here are the steps to doggy bliss:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix all the ingredients together.
  • Adjust the flours with the eggs to get a dough consistency that will easily roll out.
  • Shape  the dough into a ball ( it should hold together).

Cutting Out The Dog Treats

Cutting Out the Dog Treats

  • Roll out your dough to 1/4 inch thickness. We recommend rolling it out onto a floured board.
  • Cut out your desired shapes and remove the cutouts to your oiled baking sheets.

Dog Treats Ready to Bake

  • Bake about 20 minutes and then turn off the oven and let them sit until the dog treats harden. This might take an hour or so. You don’t have to let them get really hard if they will be used quickly (In a day or two).

This batch will make about 24 cookies, depending on the size of your cookie cutters and the shapes you are trying to make. It was enough to fill up our large dog treat jar and give the pups some treats in the process! Enjoy the dog treats. We’re pretty sure they will be a fantastic hit with your dogs!

NOTE: This is not like making a people cookie. You can make this dough really thick and easy to handle because these dog treats are meant to be tough and crunchy. We left ours somewhat soft; we just liked them that way. The recipe lets you do it your way. Let us know how you make these.

Think Christmas gifts! These would be great for gifts in a cute treat jar with a ribbon, and properly hardened!

My dogs went wild for these treats. They would have eaten all of them at one time. If I open the baggie they are in the dogs are right there, waiting and bouncing in anticipation.

Well I must leave a glowing report on behalf of my adorable furry friends! They scooped these right up! I left them in the center of my dining room table while I went to another room, and when I came back those naughty dogs had eating every last cookie and crumb! Needless to say they didn't need another my dinner that evening lol
