  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • cup water


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  
  • Mix all ingredients well in a large bowl until a soft dough forms.  
  • Roll into 1" balls and press down with a fork (creating a criss-cross pattern) or pat to about 1" thickness and cut with a cookie cutter to desired shape.  
  • Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake 20-25 minutes.  
  • They won't expand, so you can place them close together.
  • Remove from oven and let cool.  
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.  


  • Make sure you have a can of pureed pumpkin and not a can of pumpkin pie mix. The latter has added sugars and flavorings.
  • Instead of rolling the dough into balls, roll it to a 1" thickness on a lightly floured surface. Then, cut it into dog-themed shapes using fun cookie cutters.
  • Don't worry about overcrowding the cookie sheet. The treats won't expand, so you can arrange them side-by-side on the cookie sheet.
  • For a firm but chewy dog treat, bake for less time -and for a hard, crunchy dog biscuit, bake the biscuits a few minutes longer.
