Recipe type: Homemade Dog Treats
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • ⅔ cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour (plus ¼ extra on standby if needed)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. (I used a 16x12 baking sheet - a little bigger would be better)
  3. Place the eggs, peanut butter, and pumpkin in a stand mixer bowl fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on high speed until well combined (about 2-3 minutes). Reduce mixer speed to low and add the flour a ¼ cup at a time until dough is no longer sticky-add more flour if needed. Dough will separate from the sides of the bowl when ready.

  5. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and need by hand until dough comes together (my dough was still a little sticky so I added a little more flour at this time).

  1. This looks easy enough for first time treat maker! I would also like to frost them with either carob or yogurt chips. Do you know where I can find them? Can I color the yogurt chips? Is food coloring safe for dogs? Thanks in advance for your help! My plan is to make some as Christmas gifts for family dogs!

  2. I would try a health food store for the carob. As far as coloring I would not use it just because I am trying to keep the ingredients as natural as possible. I think the color of the carob and yogurt in contrast with the natural color of the dog treats would go well together. (you can google the ingredients for safety but I think you are good with both of these ingredients)
    Good luck and thanks for your comment.
