Pumpkin Peanut Butter Oatmeal Dog Biscuits

I’m pretty sure the day we brought home Charlie we thought we were rescuing him…..

turns out we now think he rescued us.

He helps up be more active, we are always getting up to let him out, to go for a walk or play fetch.

He rescued us from ever feeling like there is no one home.

He helps us realize how much love we have to give and of course he is there every step of the way reminding us how much he loves us.

Even if it’s sometimes means cleaning up a chewed up mess…..he is probably trying to remind us to make sure everything is put in it’s place! (with a lid on it if need be)

I have baked dog biscuits before we even had a dog.

This time I wanted to include pumpkin and instead of using flour and cornmeal, I used oatmeal.

Pumpkin Peanut Butter Oatmeal Dog Biscuits
 
Ingredients
  • 3 cups oats
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs
Instructions
  1. Place the oatmeal into a food processor and pulse it until it's not so coarse, but it doesn't need to be a fine as flour.
  2. Add oatmeal, pumpkin, peanut butter cinnamon baking powder and eggs to bowl on mixer and blend on medium until it's all mixed.
  3. Roll out with a little flour and cut with cookie cutters.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Cool on rack until completely cooled.
  6. Place in airtight container to keep them fresh, or in the freezer. I keep them in the freezer, they don't freeze solid as there is little liquid.

 After some treats, Charlie likes to go outside.

The weather is still pretty warm here about 85 today and I really do think he thinks of going for a swim. He hasn’t jumped in on his own yet. But he’s fallen off the edge a couple times and we’ve scooped him out after he swam to the edge.

and when Charlie isn’t outside running around he can be found in his new spot…

on top of my desk.

He thinks he’s the cat!

    Oh my gosh, Diane! Charlie is such a sweetheart and so is your kitty :) I love making homemade treats for my pup, too. So fun to treat them for their daily antics that make us love them even more haha. And my dog totally acts like a cat too! So funny.

    Diane,
    Nice recipe! We would be happy to post your recipe on our website with a link back to your website, if you don’t mind that we recommend not using canned pumpkin. The sugar, possible nutmeg and fillers are not very healthy for dogs.

      There is no added sugar in the canned pumpkin I used. (Libby’s Brand) I didn’t use the pie filling just the plain canned pumpkin. Th only ingredient is pumpkin. No nutmeg either.
      I prefer that the recipe not be copied, but you are welcome to mention the recipe with a link back. If you print the recipe there would be no incentive for people to click over to my site.
      I hope you understand.
      Thank you for asking.

        I too bake for my dogs and constantly have to explain canned pumpkin vs “pumpkin pie filling” great little recipe btw.

    I’m making these now (after having them on my “What’s Cooking this Week” Pinterest board for weeks!) My kitchen was a big mess this morning after making pies for school, so I figured, let’s make ‘em now! The batter smells delicious and I would try but for the raw eggs. Looking forward to treating my pups to these yummy treats! Thank you for the healthy recipe!!!

    Thanks for the information about the pumpkin you use, Diane! I understand that cinnamon, unlike nutmeg, may actually be good for dogs. Have you heard anything along that line?

    And, good idea! We should put together a list of links to online dog treat recipes. If we do, I will be sure to send you a link.

    I made these for Christmas and my dogs loved them! I did give them to relatives and friends who have dogs also and received good feedback on the treats. Thanks for the simple and healthy recipe for my pups!

    Diane, What are your treats frosted with? Is there a recipe for the icing?

    • 16

      It’s 1 cup powdered sugar and a couple teaspoons water with food coloring. Mix it until it’s smooth and adjust the consistency until it’s the thickness you need. I piped it on with a piping bag, allowed the first color to harden then wrote the names.

    Are you using rolled oats or quick oats? I can’t wait to make these! :)

      I used Quaker Oats, not the 1 minute variety, the oats you cook a bit longer. I’m sure most varieties will work. The box says Old Fashioned. They are not Steel Cut Oats, those take a while to cook.

    Do you have a recipe for the icing that you show on the dog biscuits?

    I made this recipe, and I’d to say that these treats are a roaring success! My great danes are crazy about them, and I like that they’re super easy to make, and wheat & corn free. Thanks for sharing!

    Made these tonight, and they are a big hit with my dog. He watched me through the entire process, like he somehow knew they were for him. My cat also tried to help by stepping in the dough and flour, but had no interest in the finished product. But definitely a winner for dogs! Thanks!
