Fall is here and we’re embracing it at JAH. You’ve got your beloved PSL, you’ve got your pumpkin patches, your fall scented candles, your sweaters, but wait!! Are you just going to leave your pup out of all of this?! It may not be a PSL, but your furry friend will love these 3 ingredient pumpkin treats.
If you haven’t ever tried making dog treats at home, this is a great recipe to try out! There are actually many treat recipes that are super simple and easier to make than baked goods for humans. The critics aren’t as harsh with these either. 😉
-1 can plain pumpkin
-½ cup natural peanut butter
-2 cups whole wheat flour
That’s it! That’s all the ingredients you need!
PREHEAT AND MIX
Preheat your oven to 350.
Combine all three ingredients into a mixing bowl.
Pro Tip: Put some oil on your hands before you begin mixing to keep the mixture from sticking as much.
Assemble the treats
Hopefully you have multiple cookie sheets because this recipe makes a LOT of dough.
Flour your surface area, a clean countertop or table is ideal. Roll out your dough with a rolling pin….or whatever cylindrical container you have on hand!
Once your dough is all rolled out start cutting the “cookies” into shapes! If you don’t have cookie cutters, you can just use a glass to cut the cookies .
Bake the treats
Place the cookies on a greased cookie sheet and bake for approximately 12 minutes. Be sure to check as you get close! Our’s baked pretty fast!
Cool and Enjoy!
After they cool, store them in a container…doesn’t necessarily need to be airtight. They’ll keep for about a week if left out, but you can freeze and let your pup enjoy them a couple months from now as well.
However, Fall is NOW not three months from now. If you have too many “Pup-kin Spice Cookies” for your own furry gang at home, we suggest sharing them with other doggo friends or maybe even taking them to a local animal shelter!!
