Peanut Butter And Pumpkin Dog Treat Recipe

Make your own peanut butter and pumpkin dog treats with this easy recipe.

My dogs love these peanut butter and pumpkin dog treat. They are super easy to make too. Who doesn’t love to spoil their pets??? I had been searching Pinterest for dog treat recipes but didn’t have all the ingredients on hand, so I pulled out these ingredients and made up my own. They turned out great and took only 25 min from start to finish.

The vet told me once that pumpkin was good for dogs and I already knew that my pups love peanut butter so I decided to combine the two. After doing some research I found that pumpkin has many benefits for dogs.

  • It promotes urinary health. If your dog struggles with incontinence try adding a little pumpkin to their diet.

  • Pumpkin helps with digestive health and regularity. It is a great source of fiber and may help with your dogs stomach issues.

  • Canned pumpkin is also low in calories. If you have a pup that needs to lose a few pounds, try replacing a small amount of their normal food with canned pumpkin.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups Flour

  • 2 Eggs

  • 1/3 Cup Pumpkin Puree

  • 1/4 Cup Peanut Butter

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the eggs, peanut butter and pumpkin and beat it with the mixer.

Once everything was mixed together well I added in the flour. Don’t add it all at once or your mixer will get angry… I added about 1/2cup at a time. The mixture is going to get very sticky and thick.dog treat recipe

Next, put the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead it until it formed a ball. Then I rolled it about 1/4″ thick. I used a small cookie cutter because my dogs don’t need huge dog treats but you can use any Cookie Cutter you want. I personally love these cute dog bone shaped cookie cutters.

I placed the cut out treats onto a baking sheet and popped them in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 min. They turned out great. They aren’t a crunchy treat, they are soft and chewy.dog treat recipe


Once they have cooled, put them into an airtight container. I love using my super cute dog treat container that I made using a Dollar Store container and scrapbooking stickers. My one year old thinks the dog treats are  cookies for her. I suppose they wouldn’t hurt her but I try to divert her attention and give her something else.

      Hi Devon. Great recipe. Could I exchange the pumpkin for carrots? Thank you, Sincerely, Sherry 🙂

        Oh that’s a great idea! Just purée the carrots and it would work great.

    These sound so easy! And …if someone accidentally ate them, it wouldn’t be too bad! I never thought about combining pumpkin and peanut butter !

    I love this idea! We want a dog, but right now everyone travels too much and we’ve got too many house projects going on. But I love making treats for other people, and I think it would be wonderful to whip up a batch of these for my dog mama friends to give their pups.
