Dog Treat Recipe | Peanut Butter Pumpkin Treats from A Mastiff Blog

This isn’t the pumpkin treat, but doesn’t it look yummy?

Amanda, who writes A Mastiff Blog, and has two of these gorgeous pups, share the following dog treat recipe…

I love baking for my dogs (yeah yeah, I’m weird!) Here’s a treat recipe I use that is also holiday themed for Thanksgiving, last time I made it I even replaced the flour with Rice flour to make it 100% gluten free.  It way mushier, so I could only make cookie treats, not cookie cutter treats, but the dogs still loved them!

Peanut Butter Pumpkin Treats

1 can of canned pumpkin (not the seasoned pie filling, you want pure pumpkin)
2 heaping TBSP peanut butter (all natural is better)
2 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
2 1/2 cups flour + more to stiffen dough

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Mix the first 4 ingredients together well, then add the flour and mix in completely.  You should have a very sticky dough.  Add in more flour by the 1/4 cup full until a dough is formed you can work with that’s not too sticky.

Press the dough out into about 1/4 or 1/2″ thickness then use a medium sized doggy bone cookie cutter (or whatever shape you want) and put them on an ungreased cookie sheet.Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour, flip 1/2 way through. You want them to be crunchy when they are done so they don’t mold.

    • Thanks for the link, Dee!!!

  1. Use Oat Flour or brown rice flour in place of wheat flour. Its better for the dogs! Otherwise, great recipe!

    • Thanks for the tip about the oat and brown rice flower, I’ll add a note in my cookbook.

  2. All Jasmine has to say to that is, “Where is the bacon?” :-)

    • I’m with Jasmine! Yummmm, bacon. I’m going to miss bacon the most come January 1.

  3. What’s happening starting January 1? Becoming a vegetarian or something?

  4. Dee – I have used brown rice flour for a gluten free option, the dough is much softer and you can’t cut it with a cookie cutter, but you can still make sticks or cookie balls out of it and they love the flavor!
