Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it or not but we have a new puppy at our house, he is a Pembroke Corgi and his name is Finnegan but we call him Finn and I truly believe that he is the cutest puppy on the planet, see for yourself:

Right?  So I decided to make him some homemade dog treats because who can resist those puppy eyes?  He loved them and I took some down to my neighbor Karin’s dog Rusty who wasn’t sure at first but then Karin texted saying that he loves them too.  So win, win!

2/3 cup pumpkin puree

1/4 cup peanut butter

2 eggs

2 1/2 – 3 cups flour

1  Preheat oven to 350.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

2  Beat pumpkin, peanut butter and eggs until smooth then gradually add in flour until dough is no longer sticky.

3  Knead dough then roll out on lightly floured surface, about 1/4″ thick.  Cut into desired shapes and put on cookie sheets.

4  Bake 20 – 25 minutes or until just starting to brown.  Remove to racks and let cool.

(My husband tried one and said they weren’t bad!  Ha ha!)

  1. They look like they were finely made and Finn is indeed adorable! Cute as button! Just to remind everyone that most commercial peanut butter contains Xylitol as a substitute sweetener. Xylitol happens to be extremely poisonous to dogs so I would use homemade peanut butter instead of buying and everyone else should too. Happy baking! ❤
