This is one of our favorite holiday recipes for Teddy & Starbuck that we wanted to share with you again 🙂

For the holidays, we always like to do something special for our dogs…typically it’s embarrassing them by making them dress up in some sort of outfit.  But we also like to give them a stocking full of goodies.  Especially these homemade dog treats with pumpkin & peanut butter…what dog wouldn’t love them?!

Homemade Dog Treats with Pumpkin &

Yield: 25 treats


  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk together flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. After initially mixed all ingredients together I then used my hands to really mix everything well. You may also need to add a little bit of water.

Roll the dough into a ball. Then flour a hard surface and use a rolling pin to roll the dough out, which should be about 1/2 inch thick.

Use a cookie cutter to make a cute shape.

Bake in over for about 30 minutes, or until hard.
