Hey there sports fans, Sam here with a new treat mom found and whipped up for me and Elsa last week. Boy, are they ever tasty. And so easy to make, once you’ve chilled the dough.
Peanut Butter~Pumpkins Treats
O-kay mom, I promise to share with the Ninja, but not before I share the recipe with our readers.
- 2 cups whole wheat flour (unless your pooch is sensitive in which case substitute to one he can enjoy)
- 1 cup of oats
- 1/4 cup of peanut butter (make sure it’s Xylitol free)
- 1/3 cup of pumpkin (the real stuff, not pie filing)
- 1 cup water
In a bowl combine all ingredients and mix until well combined. Press dough into a ball, wrap in plastic and refrigerator for a few hours or overnight like we had to do. I almost lost my mind waiting. Sheesh mom!
When your dough is well chilled, lightly flour your work surface (using the same flour you used in the dough), roll out until about 1/2 inch thick. Cut out with cookie cutters or the mouth of a small glass. Arrange on cookie sheet. You can put a jillion of them on a sheet since they don’t expand. Mom always uses parchment
because she’s lazy about cleaning off the sheets to avoid sticking. Optional: Apply an egg wash to top of treats. We skipped the eggs, I was already too excited to wait any longer. I already had to wait overnight. Bake at 250ºF for 25-30 mins. And for the legal beagles to keep us from getting sued, remember to allow your treats to cool before serving. Make sure to refrigerator to keep. Mom likes the idea of freezing to keep them safe and the treats crunchy for us. Gimme a treat, gimme a treat!
See, what’d I say, quick and easy, right? Hope you bake some up for your favorite pup and let us know what you thought of them.
Live, love, bark! ❤︎
