Healthy Pumpkin Dog Treats


  • Author: Brita Britnell
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 20 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup of pureed pumpkin (canned or fresh)
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, softened
  • 4 tablespoons of water, plus more if needed
  • 2 cups of whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 egg

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degree F.
  2. Mix the pumpkin, softened coconut oil, and water together in a large bowl.
  3. Then mix in the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and baking powder
  4. Mix it a bit and then stir in the egg.
  5. Continue to stir until it’s ALL combined. This might take a good minutes and feel free to add a touch more water in order to get all of the mixture into one solid, slightly sticky ball.
  6. Once done, roll the dough out on a floured surface to ~1/4 inch thick.
  7. Using a cookie cutter, cut out treats. These can be as small or as large as you want them (depending on the size of your dogs. I realize not everyone has giant dogs like me)
  8. Place prepared dough treats on a lined/ greased baking sheet and bake for ~30 minutes (depending on size) or until dough has hardened.
  9. Let cool and enjoy your pups excitement!

Notes

***Important update!: If you don’t cook these treats until they’re totally dry and hard (like a traditional dog biscuit) then you need to store these in the refrigerator! Either way, it wouldn’t hurt to put them in the fridge to store them.
