Dog Biscuits: Peanut Butter and Pumpkin

"I always have these ingredients in the pantry. You can use either all purpose flour or whole wheat, quick cook or old fashioned oats, and chunky or smooth peanut butter. When these are in the oven, the house smells so good that my husband would even try them I think. I love to whip these up for the girls (dogs). It's only fair they get special treats now and again :) I also make these around Christmas and give them to my friends with dogs! Great gift for pet owners!!!"

Ready In:
10 big dog bone cookies




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Combine dry ingredients in a bowl (flour, oats, salt, and cinnamon) and mix.
  • In a stand mixer bowl, combine the eggs, pumpkin, and peanut butter. Combine the 2 together and start to work the dough. If you don't have a mixer, then just do it by hand.
  • The dough should be dry and stiff. You might need to add just a bit of water.
  • Roll the dough about 1/2-inch-thick and cut with cookie cutters or a knife.
  • Bake on a parchment or silpat lined cookie sheet for about 30-40 minutes, or until hard. The baking time depends on if you are making big treats, or little ones so adjust the times. Little treats I would check at around 15 minutes or so.
  • Store in an airtight container.

    These dog treats are easy to make and got a "paws up" from my fur-baby! They did smell good while cooking too and came out nice and crunchy, just like my pup likes them. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2012

    These were great! My little dog is a very picky eater and I've tried to make other treats but she would never eat them. But she ate these with the very first try! I made these by the recipe, except I didnt have any pumpkin in the house so I substituted a sweet potato (I microwaved one small sweet potato and mashed it up to make 1 cup), and I only had steel cut oats so I used those instead of the old fashioned oats. I needed a little water so I used a tiny bit of leftover chicken broth. To my pleasant surprise she loves them. I will be making these often. Thanks for sharing!
