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.

Aww, yeahh! It’s Howie’s turn!!

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

Even Howie can’t resist peanut butter and pumpkin!

Is pumpkin a vegetable??!

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!

Here are some cookie cutters like the ones I used:

Dog Bone Cookie Cutter

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.

Thank you for the recipe. I have wanted to make my yorkie homemade treats. He has allergies and expects his treats. Hard to find gluten free treats with no potatoes in them rats I just finished off the jar of natural peanut butter. Have to wait to make them. Lol

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! :)

My Girl Scout troop made these for the dogs at our local animal shelter. Made some for the dogs there and also as good bags to give to the pet parents that adopted dogs from there. They were a BIG hit!!! The girls loved making them and the dogs loved eating them. :D

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. :)

Just made these. I didn’t roll them out, just used a small cookie dough scoop and flattened them with a fork. My dog loved them! Thanks for the recipe :)

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!

Just made two batches. So quick and easy…I am not a cook and was done in like 30 minutes! Question, are they supposed to be soft or hard? Mine were soft. I cooked the second batch longer but still soft.

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

Kelly Thomas September 24, 2014 at 4:03 pm

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:)

Thanks so much for your recipe! My girls, Milly & Molly, just love these treats I just made today! Do they need to go in the fridge if in air tight container? Also, How long will they keep in an air tight container if not frozen?

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!
