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.
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.
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.
Using the small dog bone cookie cutter, I get about 50 pieces.
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.
Compulsory photo with his new treats. Haha
