For Miley and Howie’s feature in Dog’s Today Magazine, I shared a recipe for 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Pumpkin dog treats. Today I’ve got the recipe here, along with Miley and Howie’s reaction to these homemade treats! :)

They’re so easy — the three ingredients are flour, peanut butter and pumpkin. Just mix, cut out, and bake!

The recipe makes a ton, but they freeze beautifully. They stay soft even when frozen, so we keep them in the freezer and pull them out on special occasions to give Miley and Howie for a cool refreshing treat.

Howie’s more of a picky eater, so he has to inspect this new treat before he decides he wants to try.

Little stinker. Here’s all you’ll need to make your own Homemade Peanut Butter Pumpkin Treats. You can totally use regular flour here, but I went with whole grain brown rice flour to make these treats a little healthier for Miley and Howie. Little stinkers eat better than I do, lol!

Hope your pups enjoy! Have a great weekend! :)

 

3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Pumpkin Homemade Dog Treats

1/2 cup Natural Peanut Butter
1 cup 100% Pure Pumpkin Puree, canned
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour (I used Whole Grain Brown Rice Flour)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, stir together peanut butter and pumpkin. Stir in the flour 1/4 cup at a time just until dough is no longer sticky.

3. Roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment paper to 1/4″ thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut out the dough, then place on the prepared pan.

4. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 8-10 minutes. Let cool completely. Store in an airtight container or freeze for up to 3 months.

Do your babies get terrible gas when they eat these? These look amazing but my Boston (who died 2 years ago) would have had terrible gas if he ate something like this. I would love to make these for my new pups, but am curious how Miley and Howie digest them?

Oh my! Looks so yummy……………..almost makes me wish I had a dog to make them for! :)

Are Miley and Howie giving ‘pawtographs’, now that they’ve been featured with their own spread in a prestigious magazine – or – are they just remaining their same, sweet, bubbly selves – unaffected by all their new celebrity? Of course, they’ve been celebrities with those of us who’ve loved your blog, since the day we found you – and those sweet fur-babies of yours! :)

Can I use the regular peanut butter like Jif? Thanks

Amanda April 20, 2014 at 2:35 pm

Yes, you can! Jif just has sugar in it, and dogs don’t need a lot of sugar, so give in moderation. :)

C January 28, 2015 at 12:31 pm

Jif also has hydrogenated trans oils, which even in moderation is damaging to cell membrane function the the cardio vascular system (of humans and dogs). You can find plain peanut butter for jus a dollar or two more, and think it’s great for our friendly pals we love.

I just wanted to say that my Papillon loves these, I just put them in spoonfuls on a cookie sheet and press them down a little and make sort of round cookies. One thing I would like to mention is that she had an anal gland problem from the time I got her as a little puppy and after eating these pumpkin treats for several weeks I have found that the anal gland problem is completely gone and I don’t plan on ever having to expel the glands ever again! the fiber from the pumpkin and giving her at least one or two each day has made all the difference!

After making pumpkin cookies for my husband and I, this recipe was a relief for our Abby who was quite upset we didn’t share our treats with her. She waited very patiently by the oven for these to be finished and they were a huge hit! Thank you for the quick, easy, and healthy recipe! Great for a rainy Wednesday night!

Do they get hard after cooling or before you take them out

No, they stay perfectly soft. I’ve noticed some homemade dog treats do harden, and I was concerned about that as well but I think the pumpkin aids in keeping them soft:)

Kelly Thomas September 24, 2014 at 4:01 pm

I made these today for our new little adopted terrier, she LOVES them! Thank you for sharing! They definitely stay chewy after cooling too. I actually added a scoop of oats and a little extra pumpkin to the recipe. I had a small pumpkin cookie cutter from last year, so they look extra adorable too:)

Love this quick and simple recipe – especially with it being all natural. I made these cookies (with bone and paw print cut outs) for my dog’s Birthday last week and we also passed them out to all the dogs at the shelter that I work at. Even the picky dogs loved them! We also have a lot of dogs on special diets so it was nice for them to enjoy a yummy homemade treat within their diet.
Question- how long do they last in the refrigerator?

I currently only have all purpose flour, can I use that? I know there’s gluten in them but if I give in moderation is that ok?

Kristina November 5, 2014 at 4:49 pm

Making these for the first time, but I find that they are not getting dried out, even after adding a lot of extra flour. Do they come out hard? Also, I added parsley flakes to the mixture, it is so great for their tummies and their breath!

Thank you so much for this fast and easy recipe. Every Christmas I make homemade doggie cookies for the neighbourhood dogs. My 2 Huskies and I go and pass them out. It was a HIT! For some of the other bashes I did add more peanut butter( I used low fat) for a little firm cookie but they are AWESOME either way.

Thanks for the recipe. My golden has a sensitive GI tract. I was looking for a way to use can pumpkin. We were giving it her on her other treats but we are having problems with it not lasting a long time in our fridge so I am going to try making these treats for her. All we have is regular peanut butter.

If I am running short on time and don’t want to use the cookie cutter, I roll out the dough and use my pizza cutter instead. This also allows me to make the right size treats for both my big dog and my little one. It is incredibly fast this way!

After a couple of days, I put them in the freezer for long-term storage. Miley and Howie like them straight out of the freezer!

Definitely put them in the fridge for maybe a week or freeze. I just put them in a zip lock bag and put them on the counter and within 4 days some of them had little spots of mold starting to grow. Be careful! They are fresh food, not dog treats from the store.

I rarely leave comments on blog pages, but I felt I had to. Not only do both of our hounds (a doxie and a beagle) LOVE these treats, but my 12-year-old daughter loved making them — by herself! She likes it so much that she’s decided she’s making them for all her friends’ dogs for next Christmas. :D
FYI: We used ground up plain rolled oats (pulsed them in our Ninja!).

Did you use the rolled oats in place of the flour? Or in addition to the other three ingredients?

Kellie August 23, 2015 at 4:34 pm

These were great! I didn’t have any pumpkin on hand but I used some frozen bananas that didn’t make it into the banana bread. Instead of rolling, I piped 1/2″ logs and sliced into teeny rounds for treat training. Great option for us as we just adopted a Heeler from the local Humane Society. She loves doing things for treats! :)

Stacy October 22, 2015 at 10:21 am

Great recipe, I use buckwheat flour for my dog treats, it’s wheat and gluten free. I’ve also made these and subbed out pumpkin or peanut butter (depending on the flavor profile) for baby food. Just be sure you use natural baby food with no added sugar, onion, etc. My dogs love blueberry and apple, mix that pumpkin and you have a winner! I use my dog nose print and paw print cookie cutters.

Sarah October 29, 2015 at 8:03 am

I made these for my Labradors this morning, substituting ground oat flour in place of much of the whole wheat flour (I did 1 cup oat flour + 3/4 cup whole wheat flour). The dough was perfect for rolling out, and because I didn’t have a perfect size cookie cutter (only tiny ones, or big ones) I used a bigger circle cutter, and then using a knife, I cut them in half to create a semi circle. I think i’ll call them smile treats! :) haha. They are cooling on the counter, but I can already tell that my labs (I have 3; a chocolate, black and yellow) are going to enjoy woofing these down in no time. I will probably freeze some to keep them longer. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I had pumpkin in the fridge I wanted to use up, and natural peanut butter that my kids wouldn’t eat (because they like sugar! lol)

I don’t keep peanut butter OR any grain flours in the house but was dying to try these so I substituted sunflower seed butter and coconut flour(only used about 3/4C) and they still turned out wonderful and my furbaby won’t stop begging for more. THANK YOU FOR THE RECIPE!

I made them this morning. Used 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour, 3/4 cups porridge oats whizzed in a Bullit and home made pumpkin purée. Our two furbabies love them. I could not convince my wife to try one though. I did and they were tasty.

Thank you so much for this recipe. Our senior dog loves them!! To make it easier for me, I rolled out the dough into rectangles and basically cut little squares with a serrated knife (smaller than a quarter). I froze weekly rations in snack bags. One batch might last 3-4 weeks. Will try storing them in the fridge to keep fresh. Smell great, soft, perfect.
