Homemade pumpkin dog treats are easy to make and more nutritious for your furry friend than the store-bought counterparts. These simple homemade dog treats are made with wholesome real food ingredients.
This dog treat recipe comes from the Organic Dog Treat Cookbook, from the Bubba Rose Biscuit Company. This cookbook is full of drool-worthy dog treat recipes your dog will beg for!
These from-scratch dog biscuits are made with a blend of oat flour and brown rice flour and canned pumpkin. So while they are safe for human consumption, I think they'd be pretty dry. If you're hungry for a human treat, you might want to make some pumpkin oat flour pancakes or pumpkin chocolate cake instead.
How To Make Homemade Pumpkin Dog Treats
You only need 5 ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.
- Oat Flour
- Brown Rice Flour
- Pumpkin Puree (homemade or canned)
The bone-shaped cookie cutter came with the cookbook, but you can make these any shape you like. I did half the batch with the cookie cutter and half the batch in a regular cookie shape. Making them into cookie balls and pressing down to make a criss-cross pattern with a fork is definitely faster and easier.
