Pumpkin Pup Treats

by Megan on October 9, 2011

Elliot needed some pumpkin-love in his life this fall.

And rumor has it pumpkin is good for dog bellies. It settles their stomaches. Pumpkins are so thoughtful like that.

When I give one of these to Elliot he chomps away and then checks the floor really well to not waste a single crumb. So he really likes them, and I bet your pup would too!

Now he spends a lot of time laying on the floor staring at the jar hoping to eat more and more. It really messes up his usual schedule of napping in the living room, and then in a sunny patch, and then in the bedroom.

So if your pup is needing a fall pick-me-up, then this is just the thing!

Pumpkin Pup Treats {makes about 75 mini treats}
Recipe from Simmer Till Done

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 T dry milk
  • 1/4 t sea salt
  • 2 1/2 cups brown rice flour
Directions:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350° F and get out two baking sheets or one large baking sheet. No need to spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the pumpkin and eggs until combined. Add the dry milk, sea salt and stir it up. Slowly add the brown rice flour and stir until combined. Feel free to get in there with your hands and knead the flour in.
  3. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface 1/4-1/2″, depending on how crunchy you want them to be. Cut out using a small cookie cutter and place on your baking sheets. Press a fork into the center of each biscuit.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes, flip them all over and bake for 15 minutes more. Cool completely before giving to your pup.

He just really loves them. And I just really love him.

I didn’t have powdered milk so I used strawberry soy powder! My kids love that in water, and I figured it’s very milk like, so why not?

new to making puppy treats, any idea how long they will stay fresh or should I keep them in the refrigerator? thanks

Keep them in an airtight container. They should keep a week or more, if they last that long. 🙂
