I have a dog. His name is Mojo.
I take him on long walks
Eric takes him to the vet, cleans up after him and makes him eat yucky diet food because Mo is a 'tad' bit over weight.
So I made Mo some yummy treats.
No wonder he likes me best. Wink. Wink.
I have been wanting to make Mo dog treats for quite sometime. Store bought treats are SO expensive and just like any processed food who knows what's in them! These treats were actually pretty darn easy to make, probably only cost around a dollar (if that!) for about 40 treats and had good wholesome ingredients like pumpkin and whole wheat flour. And guess what? Mojo LOVED them (and loved me too!)!
PS: I shared Monday that pumpkin helps promote a healthy digestive system and the same goes for your furry friend too! Many vets recommend mixing 1/2 cup pumpkin or yogurt in with your dog's dry food to help with any tummy issues they maybe having!
Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats
Prep Time: 25 minutes Cook Time: 35-40 minutes Makes: approximately 40 medium treats
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
½ cup peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 tablespoons water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Whisk together the flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. Add water as needed to help make the dough workable, but the dough should be dry and stiff. Roll the dough into a 1/2-inch-thick roll. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces.
Bake in preheated oven until hard, about 35-40 minutes.
