Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Dog Biscuits

Dog Treat Jar Rev

Did I mention that I recently brought home a puppy? Oh I did? That’s because I’m obsessed with him.

I try to keep Oliver as happy and healthy as possible. Being an [almost] dietitian means I value food and want to nourish my body to the best of my ability. I don’t want to turn around and feed my dog a bunch of junk! I pay a little extra for quality dog food and dog treats. The dog treats can cost a pretty penny though! I’ve started experimenting with making my own.

These treats were super simple, and a real crowd pleaser. Bailey and Oliver would not leave my side through the entire process. Probably because I let them lick the pumpkin and peanut butter spoons.

Dog Treat Dough

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside. In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, combine eggs, pumpkin and peanut butter. Next, add flour and oats, and mix well until dough forms.

Turn dough out onto a floured surface, and roll to desired thickness. Using your favorite cookie cutters, cut out the biscuits and place on prepared baking sheet.
