Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Treats

Yield: About 2 dozen small treats
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30-35 minutes
Total Time: 35-40 minutes
Ingredients:
1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
2 eggs
1/2 cup oats (optional if your dog is on a grain free diet)
3 cups whole wheat flour, brown rice flour, or gluten free flour
3 Tbsp of all natural peanut butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In Large Batter Bowl # 2431, stir together the flour, oats, and cinnamon with Scoop & Spread #1679
In a separate Large Batter Bowl, whisk together the eggs with Stainless whisk, pumpkin and peanut butter until combined. Stir wet ingredients into dry.
Pour onto a floured surface and roll dough out to 1/2 thick using Baker’s roller #1485. Cut out using Creative Cutters set #1095. The dough will be a little sticky, a dusting of flour for your hands and the Baker’s roller #1485 will help! Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until golden brown on your Stoneware cookie sheet #1343. Place on stackable cooling racks # 1587 and let cool thoroughly. They will harden as they cool.
Notes:
*Cinnamon is fine to use in recipes for dogs, however do not use a pumpkin spice blend or anything that could contain nutmeg. It is toxic to dogs and even in small amounts can make them sick.

Homemade Peanut Butter & Bacon Dog Treats

Because your pup deserves some home baked goodies too!
Yield: depends on the size of your cookie cutter
Prep Time: 10
Total Time: 45 minutes, plus cooling
Ingredients:
• 1 cup natural creamy peanut butter
• 3/4 cup nonfat milk
• 1 large egg (or 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce)
• 2 cups whole wheat flour*
• 1 Tablespoon baking powder
• 1/3 cup oats (either whole-rolled or quick oats are fine)
• 2-3 strips bacon, chopped

Directions:
Preheat oven to 325F degrees. Two large Stoneware cookie sheet # 1343 use your Reversible silicone baking mats # 1732. Set aside.
In a large batter bowl # 2431, gently mix the peanut butter, milk, and egg together with a Scoop & Spread # 1679 or Classic Scraper # 1650. Switch to a Stainless whisk # 2475 or Pastry Blender # 1686 to make sure no lumps remain. Add the flour and baking powder. You may need to turn the dough out onto the counter and use your hands to work in the flour. Mix in the oats and chopped bacon. The dough is extremely thick and heavy.
Using a Baker’s Roller # 1485, roll the dough out into 1/4″ thickness. Cut into shapes using Creative cutters # 1095 or a Pastry Cutter # 1684. Arrange on the Stoneware cookie sheets # 1343. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until very lightly browned on the bottom. Remove from the oven, and flip the treats to bake the other side for 10-12 more minutes.
Allow to cool completely before serving to your pup. Store at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Treats freeze well, up to 2 months.
*Unbleached all-purpose flour is safe for dogs, but whole wheat was more highly recommended by our vet because of its added health benefits. Again, please consult with your vet about any allergies your dog may have.
Adapted from Pet Guide
Combine the simple ingredients together in a large Batter bowl # 2431. Yep, this is a one Batter bowl recipe. The dough will be extremely thick and hard to form, so use your hands for ease. Roll it out into 1/4″ thickness and use Creative cutters # 1095 to make shapes. I used cookie cutters . Clearly your dog won’t care about the shapes. The cute shapes are really just for the humans.
The size of the treats should be based on the size of your dog. Jude is the size of a bear, so the big treats are perfect. We still break them up for him.
Arrange the shaped dough onto your baking sheet.
The dog treats won’t spread in the oven, they just puff up very slightly. The treats can be close together on your baking sheet.
Bake one side for 18-20 minutes. Until very lightly browned on the bottom. Remove from the oven and flip. Bake for 10-12 additional minutes.
Allow the treats to cool completely before sharing with your furry bud. Jude was going NUTS from the way our apartment smelled. Pure doggie heaven.
Before beginning, please check with your vet about any allergies your dog may have. If you have any questions or concerns about the ingredients I used, please consult with your vet.

Some Things to Watch Out For
When preparing homemade dog treats, make sure you take into account any allergies that your pet has to specific ingredients. You will want to avoid adding any ingredient that you know that your pet has reacted poorly to in the past. If you are experimenting with new flavors, feed the treat to your dog in a small amount to see how he reacts to it before distributing an entire treat. Store your homemade dog treats in an airtight container and place them in the freezer. Allow the treat to thaw for 10 – 20 minutes prior to serving to your dog. Treats can last for up to 6 months in the freezer.

Homemade Dog Treats

Recipe tweaked from Shared Sugar
Print this recipe!
I added virgin coconut oil to the batter because it’s awesome for dogs and humans alike. If you don’t have coconut oil on hand, and don’t want to run to the store, simply replace it with olive oil.
1/2 cup of peanut butter (I used the creamy kind)
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon of virgin coconut oil (or olive oil)
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together peanut butter, honey, oil and chicken broth. In a separate Batter bowl 3 2431, combine flours and oatmeal. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Place dough on flour dusted surface. Roll or press dough out to about 1/4” inch thick. Use a Creative Cookie cutter set #1095 to cut out cookies. My Biscuit Cutters # 1103 works great for my large dogs but for small dogs you may want to use a small Creative Cookie cutter # 1095 (around 2″). Roll out leftover scraps and cut out as many as possible. Put cut out cookies on Seasoned stoneware cookie sheet # 1343 sheet. Bake for 14-16 minutes. Transfer to a Stackable cooling rack# 1587.

Incredible Sweet Potato Cake For Dogs (And Humans Too)

Make a sweet potato cake for dogs using real sweet potato. We (the humans) tasted the cake and loved it! It did not need to be sweeter.
Although dogs are carnivorous by nature, they have adapted to the human palate over the years. Some dogs have an aversion to fruit and vegetables, but potatoes seem to be a tasty treat, especially a delicious sweet potato or yam. Use either variety for this easy dog treat recipe.

Sweet potato dog treats will provide Vitamin A which is essential for healthy eyes, and Vitamin C which promotes healthy gums and skin. Orange vegetables are high in beta-carotene which is converted into Vitamin A.

Your kitchen will have a wonderful aroma while it is baking.

As an added bonus, we created this recipe so that you will want to share it if your dog says it is OK. (All the ingredients are human grade.) We tasted the cake, and had to put it away before it was all gone. The dogs were begging for more!

S’mores Cake For Dogs

Make a S’mores cake for dogs using this easy dog birthday cake recipe.
S’mores are marshmallow treats well-known by campers. A marshmallow is roasted on the campfire, then placed between two squares of chocolate and sandwiched between two graham crackers.

We have created a dog-friendly version of this yummy dessert.

Dogs cannot metabolize chocolate so we substitute natural
carob powder, which simulates the color of cocoa powder. Dogs will not know that it tastes a little different from chocolate! Real natural carob powder is a healthy alternative to carob chips and can be found at a dog bakery supplies store like K9Cakery.com.

We use a small amount of miniature marshmallows for these dog cake recipes.
