Dog Biscuits: Peanut Butter and Pumpkin
photo by CookingBlues
- Ready In:
10 big dog bone cookies
- 2 1⁄2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1⁄2 cup oats
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup canned pumpkin
- 3 tablespoons peanut butter
- water, to help dough come together if needed
- 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 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!

I have taken many of our favorite recipes and tweaked them for a healthier lifestyle. I like to do a big cooking on the weekend and stock our freezer, but I also love the quick and healthy recipes that I can throw together in a flash. </p>
