A few years ago mom started a small at-home dog treat business because she didn’t want chemicals, additives or other unacceptable ingredients in my treats. With the addition of
the dreaded little sister Ms. Elsa and her epileptic seizures, making sure we have top quality, healthful treats is even more important.
Last week mom and I had hospital shifts (more about that later this week) and met up with our good friends, Teddy and his mom, Mary Ann who were coming to town for their shifts. We both were going to work one day selling the pet therapy calendars too so mom wanted to make sure we had some treats to give to Teddy. She dipped into her huge recipe book and found this one.
Peter Peter, Punkin Eater Treats
2 cups whole wheat flour (or another if your pup has wheat sensitivities. Mom experimented using coconut flour and it was quite yummy)
1 cup oats and 1/4 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup plain pumpkin
1 cup water (mom used The Honest Kitchen’s Bone Broth instead because she ALWAYS has to tinker with recipes and in this case, boy am I glad she did-that stuff is f.a.b.u.l.o.u.s!)
Mix all ingredients until well combined. Press into a ball, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight. Lightly flour surface and roll dough out to about 1/2″ thick. Use cookie cutters or a small glass to cut out the treats. Bake at 250º for 25-30 minutes and allow to cool before serving.
I had hoped that by sitting pretty they’d cool down quicker. Nom, nom, nom. The use of the coconut flour sure made them super tasty even if mom said they were very hard to mix together and crumbled too much for her. Me personally, I don’t care…just give me the treats, woman!! She used the tiny cutters because sweet Teddy is a little boy and missing a number of teeth. Oh, and he LOVED them more than he usually loves mom’s treats. And he always loves her treats.
What’s your favorite treat recipe?
Live, love bark! <3

Love this! Will make it for sure tomorrow. I also use broth when I make treats for my pups. Portia was bitten by a coyoyte yesterday and has a bunch of stitches on her leg. She is need of a pick me up. I think these qualify.
Yipes! So sorry to hear about the bite. Hope she recovers quickly. These treats should help.
It sounds dreadful. What ever happened to good old-fashioned bird seed?
Ha! Ask the squirrels. 😉
I bet Choppy would love these!
….my favorite treat recipe is?……..reading your blog!…………..w
Awww, aren’t you sweet! ღ
Squeals – they look so tasty. I bet they are piggy friendly too. Yummo – I’m writing the recipe down for mom now. XOXO – Bacon
You’ll love ’em, Bacon!
I can’t wait. Thanks for sharing that recipe! XOXO – Bacon
good food… good fuel. I was ready to sample them myself til you got to bone broth… good mama!
I actually tasted them before adding the broth, remarkably tasty with the coconut flour. Every time I filled another cookie sheet, the dogs were completely underfoot like a herd of cats circling. 😉
We will have to try these at our house! They sound delicious.
They were! I confess…I tasted them to make sure. 😉
That recipe sounds really good! I may have to try it for the girls one of these days. How many treats – approximately – does it yield?
Depends on the size of your cutter. I used small cutters and got a boatload. Unfortunately too many are gone now to give an accurate count. I think there were 3 large cookie sheets full.
Those sound like they’d be yummy for humans as well … maybe with a healthy fat or an egg or applesauce and some kind of rising agent 🙂
Even as is, the dough wasn’t half bad tasty. 😉
This recipe sounds good and Miley will love it! I need to use up my whole wheat flour though so will have to try the coconut flour some other time. Miley will ❤️ them!
I was pleasantly surprised by how much my two liked them. And for Teddy to actually paw at my arm for more was definitely a first. 😉
that sounds super tasty…. maybe the mama can make me some special howl-o-ween dog treats too? … she is not really good with baking stuff… the only thing she can bake are cookies from green ingredients what have weird after effects :o)
If the dough sticks together well, anyone can make these treats!
