Yummy Halloween Treats for your Dog
Posted on: October 31 2013
We all enjoy some sweet treats during Halloween, dogs and humans alike! So why not share the joy with some lovely yummy homemade treats for your dog that you can make yourself. Below is one of my dog's favourite homemade treats and by following this simple recipe you can create some yourself to let your dogs enjoy!
Peanut and Pumpkin Biscuits
What you'll need
- Biscuit cutters of your choice, my favourite is the dog bone
- 2 ½ average cup size of whole wheat flour, you can use rolled oats as an alternative to add some texture to the biscuits
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoons of unsalted and preferably sugar free peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
- ½ tin of pumpkin or a quarter of a pumpkin pureed
- 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon (optional)
How to make them
- Preheat the oven to 170C / 330 F
- Mix together the eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter and cinnamon in a bowl until it's fully mixed together
- Add the flour into the mixture in two parts to make the dough (it will be a textured firm mixture if you’re using oats instead of flour)
- Roll out the mixture to about ½ inch thick and cut out your desired shapes
- Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes depending on your oven
- Leave to chill and let your pooches enjoy!
If you’re feeling more adventurous, why not decorate your biscuits with some icing, you can use a small amount of normal icing or why not make your own using ingredients your dogs enjoy, such as soft cheese, banana puree or even carob (doggie chocolate). Simply pipe onto the biscuits your own special pattern, be as adventurous as you like! My mess gets the thumbs up from our staffie Bella.
These treats are to be eaten within 7 days of making, however they can be freezed from the day of making and will last for up to 3 months in the freezer.
If you fancy having a back up, we have plenty of different natural and organic treats to try.
