HOMEMADE PEANUT BUTTER DOG TREATS

We are just about out of treats for our three fur kids, so I thought that I would make up some fresh ones and make an Instructable at the same time.

Step 1: The Things We Need

First we will gather the things that we need.

1 cup pumpkin puree

1/4 cup peanut butter (if you have all natural peanut butter, it would be healthier for your dogs)

2 large eggs

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

Step 2: Let's Get Cookin'

Preheat your oven to 350F, line your baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside.

Put the pumpkin puree, peanut butter and eggs into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment.

Beat on medium speed until well combined ( about 1 1/2 minutes).

Adjust the mixer to low speed and gradually add the flour, beating only until it is incorporated. If the dough is sticky, you can add a little more flour, a 1/4 cup at a time. If the dough is too dry, add a little more pumpkin puree.

Roll the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead 3-4 times until it comes together.

Using a rolling pin, roll the dough to 1/4-inch thickness.

Using cookie cutters , cut out desired shapes and place onto the prepared baking sheet.

Place into oven and bake until the edges are golden brown, about 20-25 minutes

Place on your cooling rack and let cool completely.

Step 3:

This is Shooter waiting in front of the oven for the next batch to come out. All three dogs love them, I am sure that yours will too.

    Looks perfect! When Christmas rolls around, I'm going to make these for my black lab and use more peanut butter as "frosting"! xD
