I like to bake homemade dog biscuits for our four furry friends. This way I know exactly what is in them and they are healthier (and cheaper) than store-bought treats. Most of these ingredients you’ll find already in your pantry. Let’s make some Homemade Pumpkin Dog Biscuits!
Homemade Pumpkin Dog Biscuits
I did buy a bag of the whole wheat flour and this is all I use it for. When I’m ready for a new batch, all I need to pick up is a can of pumpkin for about a buck! Each can makes about TWO batches, so double up and your pooches will have dog biscuits for weeks!
Another bonus to using pumpkin? It helps soothe puppy stomachs and relieves anal glands. Considering that milking my dogs’ anal glands is on the very bottom of my list of favorite things to do, I call that a win-win folks!
2 Tbsp Peanut Butter
2 1/2 C Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 C Pumpkin (about half a can)
1 dog bone shaped cookie cutter
Combine all ingredients and mix until blended. Use your rolling pin to work the mixture flat, then use your dog cookie cutter (here are a bunch to choose from!) to make them into little bones or paws. Bake at 350° for 35 – 40 minutes, let cool and you’re done! How precious are these?! Benson is ready for his! ♥
I’ve even tasted them (because I know what’s in them!) and they aren’t half bad! Haha!!
