Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Puppy Treats Recipe



Celebration Food: Woof woof! This post is all about dogs and pumpkins. Did you know the month of October is National Adopt a dog month? And did you know October is also National Pumpkin month too? Well in honor of that, we picked a Betty Crocker recipe for dogs that has a whole can of pumpkin in it.  Give it a try and remember to make these special treats for other National Dog Holidays too. Last but not least, National Cook for your pet day is November 1st.

Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Puppy Treats Recipe
Originally uploaded by Betty Crocker Recipes
INGREDIENTS:
  • 3 cups brown rice flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 can (15 oz) pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)

DIRECTIONS:

1. Heat oven to 350° F. In large bowl stir all ingredients until soft dough forms.

2. Divide dough in half. Using brown-rice-floured rolling pin, roll each dough half to 1/2 inch thickness on brown-rice-floured surface. Cut with 3-inch cookie cutter. On ungreased cookie sheet, place cutouts about 1 inch apart.

3. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until dry and golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

4. Store in dog treat jar at room temperature up to 1 week. For longer storage keep in refrigerator or freezer.

Tip: To dress up your puppy treats, melt 1 cup yogurt chips (available at pet stores) and 1 teaspoon vegetable oil in microwavable bowl uncovered on High about 1 minute or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Drizzle over puppy treats.

Tip: Check with your vet to make sure that these puppy treats fit into your dog's diet. Be sure to check the recipe for any known foods or ingredients your pet may be allergic to.

I should make these for my dogs on Thanksgiving day.

For the animal lovers out there... I think homemade treats would be great for Santa to put in doggie Christmas stockings. And we can't forget the Easter Bunny either.
