Pumpkin and Peanut Butter Dog Treats

4.5 from 10 votes
A crunchy pumpkin and peanut butter treat for your furry friend! Five ingredients, and ready in 45 minutes.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 20 to 50 treats (depends on size)

Ingredients
  

  • ½ cup pumpkin puree, canned pumpkin, not pumpkin pie mix
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter, make sure it does not include xylitol (it is dangerous for dogs)
  • 1 ½ cups ground oats, see notes
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 325° F. 
  • In a medium bowl, mix ground oats and baking soda. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree, egg and peanut butter until well combined.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet mixture, and stir with a spatula until well combined.
  • Turn out dough on a lightly floured surface and use cookie cutters to cut out the biscuits. Note that this isn't the consistency of something like a sugar cookie cutout, so you won't want to use super detailed cookie cutters for this recipe.
  • Line a baking sheet with nonstick silicon mats or parchment paper, and place the biscuits about an inch apart on prepared pan (they're not going to spread when they bake).
  • Bake for 23-30 minutes (depending on the size - bigger treats will need more time) and then let place on cooling rack and let cool for about 15 minutes.
  • Store in an airtight container and dole them out to your pooch when they deserve a treat!

Notes

Grind your oats. They don’t need to be ground to a fine dust like flour (although you can if you want to), but using a food processor or grinder of some kind to get a mixture of whole and ground will be good enough. 
Measure your oats after grinding. You want 1 ½ cups of ground oats, so you’ll end up with a bit less than you originally measure out. It depends on how fine you grind the oats, but I usually find that 2 cups of whole oats yields 1 ½ cups coarsely ground oats.
