Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Treats


Can’t believe I rarely make dog treats for my dog. I guess the word lazy is the main culprit. Anyway, I chanced upon this good-looking recipe from Damn Delicious one fine day and so far I’ve baked it twice already using my own adaptation. Chester loves it of course. I even gave some to my neighbor’s dog that is really fierce but mellow down once I handed the homemade dog treats to him. Weeee!

Homemade peanut butter pumpkin dog treats.

Let’s bake.

Ingredients
Mix pumpkin, peanut butter and whole wheat flour with a spatula. Or you can use your bare hand like me! Then knead the dough for about 1-2 minutes. Use crunchy peanut butter if you have them because your dog will thank you for it. If not, use fine peanut butter.

Cut Into Desired Shapes
Roll dough into 0.5cm thickness with a rolling pin. Then cut into desired shapes and placed on baking tray. I’m using a dog bone cookie cutter which I bought from Ebay many moons back.

Ready For Baking
Using the small dog bone cookie cutter, I got about 50 pieces.

Ready For Baking
For large dog bone cookie cutter, I make 8 pieces. All these are taken before going into oven.

Bake at 175oC for about 20 minutes. That’s it… very easy. 😉

These can last for about 2~3 weeks.

Check out my silly golden retriever’s expression. Basically he’s in cloud 9.

Adapted from Damn Delicious

1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
2/3 cup steamed pumpkin (recipe here; if you follow this, don’t add garlic. The leftover can be fed to your dog)
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour

Method:
1. In a bowl, mix peanut butter, pumpkin & whole what flour with a spatula.

2. Kneed the dough so that everything come together. If the dough is too wet, add more flour. If dough is too dry, you can add more pumpkin.

3. On a flat surface, roll the dough with a rolling pin to about 0.5cm thickness.

4. Cut into desired shape using cookies cutters and placed on a baking tray lined with baking paper or silicon mat.

5. Bake in the oven at 175oC for about 20 minutes. Cool completely before feeding the treats to your dog.

6. Store in air-tight container.

Hope your furry pal like it!

      Hi Benny, looks good but taste wise quite bland. No sugar and salt added ma but it has the aroma of peanut butter.

    I should get my butt to work on these cookies for Chase. I have been cutting down on his food intake, the fei zhai now getting mighty hungry all the time. Maybe I should just steam the pumpkin with some garlic for him.
