Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Biscuits Recipe

I once heard someone state "When does a dog not have the munchies?", and I couldn't agree more. Being a health conscious person I like to feed my dog whole nutritious foods also. I needed an inexpensive and quick recipe for some dog treats. That brought me to what others have found to be a sure shot cookie the puppy will love all the time, the peanut butter pumpkin biscuit. Quick, simple and most important a plate cleaner!

This recipe makes 4 dozen biscuits. Oh and I don't like left-over portions of ingredients sitting in the fridge, i.e. the pumpkin, so I've rounded the quantity up to a whole portion. Meaning you can easily half the quantities for a smaller batch.

Ingredients;

  • 5 cups whole wheat flour
  • 15oz can of pumpkin
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter (creamy works best but some dogs like crunchy)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (iodized is best)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Now to put it all together;
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F 
  2. Mix the ingredients together 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 1/4-inch-thick roll. Cut into 1-1/2" squares or use your favorite cookie cutter to cut shapes.
  3. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet, in preheated oven until hard, about 40 minutes.
