Pumpkin and Peanut Butter Treats

We all know that having a dog as a part of your family can be expensive. Saving money on food and treats is always in the back of our mind. However, some foods have such crazy ingredients, its worth the extra penny to keep your dog healthy. We love receiving recipes from rescues all around, here is one from Best Friends Animal Shelter. We love how simple the recipe is and your dog will love it too!

Pumpkin and Peanut Butter Dog Treats

  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

  • 2 eggs (can substitute applesauce or mashed bananas)

  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin

  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter (without Xylitol as this is poisonous to dogs)

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Whisk together the flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. Add water as needed to help make the dough workable, but the dough should be dry and stiff. Roll the dough into a 1/2-inch-thick roll. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces.

  3. Bake in preheated oven until hard, about 35 minutes.
