We recently found some great recipes for homemade pet treats! Here is one for peanut butter pumpkin treats, from http://www.mybakingaddiction.com/homemade-dog-treats/
Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Treats
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Yield: About 2 dozen small treats
Cook Time: 30-40 minutes
Total Time: 35-40 minutes
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup oats (optional if your dog is on a grain free diet, sub an extra 1/4 cup grain free flour)
3 cups whole wheat flour, brown rice flour, or gluten free flour
3 Tbsp of all natural peanut butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In small bowl, stir together the flour, oats, and cinnamon
In a separate large bowl, whisk together the eggs, pumpkin and peanut butter until combined. Stir wet ingredients into dry.
Pour onto a floured surface and roll dough out to 1/2 thick. Cut out using cookie cutter. The dough will be a little sticky, a dusting of flour for your hands and the rolling pin will help! Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until golden brown.
Place on cooling racks and let cool thoroughly. They will harden as they cool.
*1/2 tsp of salt can be added to these treats to help extend the shelf life but, it is optional.
*Cinnamon is fine to use in recipes for dogs, however do not use a pumpkin spice blend or anything that could contain nutmeg. It is toxic to dogs and even in small amounts can make them sick.
