Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats

The easiest homemade dog treats ever–simply mix three ingredients, roll, and cut. So easy to make, and so much healthier than store-bought!

Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Our sweet dog ate the last of her homemade dog treats recently so I made her a new batch from a recipe I found on Cardomon and Coconut. I love that this recipe has three ingredients and couldn’t be easier to make. Grace was thrilled with her new pumpkin peanut butter dog treats and ate two in one sitting and looked at me longingly for more–I’d say she likes them.

Side Note: Remember to double-check that your peanut butter does NOT contain Xylitol. This sweetener is highly toxic to dogs.

How to Make Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat mat or parchment paper.

Place the flour, pumpkin, and peanut butter in a large bowl until combined.

Working on a piece of floured parchment paper or a flat surface, knead the dough 3-4 times until it comes together. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough to 1/4-inch thickness.

Using dog treat cutters, cut out desired shapes, and place them on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake until golden brown and crisp, about 30-35 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.  Store in an airtight container in the freezer or refrigerator. Enjoy.

    I was wondering if these are okay to give to my dog, whom I need to watch her sodium intake. She has congestive heart failure.
    That being said, I did make this recipe today and she LOVED them!!
    I just want to check to see if I could continue making them for her.
    Thank you!!!

    1. Lyle,

      I just don’t know! It makes me so happy that she loved them. I would check with your vet to make sure they are safe for her. I have lots of other dog treat recipes that have little sodium. Below is a link to them all. I hope your sweet girl loves any you will make her–mine sure does! Sorry your girl’s heart is struggling. Sending lots of love. ❤️

    I’ve made these a couple of times now and our son “Blue” absolutely LOVES them! ♡♡♡ My only addition is 1/2 cup of flax seeds.

    1. Blue’s Parents,

      Adding flax seeds is a terrific idea! I’m so happy Blue love these treats! Thank you for taking the time to let me know.

  7. All your treats look so good! Our dog is old, we had to have all his teeth pulled, he has adapted well was wondering if anyone has a soft treat to make. they are so hard to come by lately .Sorry so long winded lol .thanks

    1. Linda,

      I’m wondering if the frozen treats may be a good option for him, but maybe let them sit at room temperature for a few minutes to soften up before giving them to him. They would be easier to eat and soothing on the gums. I have a few options- the link is down below.

      Also, I’ve had a recipe bookmarked to try but haven’t had a chance yet. It’s for no-baked treats that are very soft…they may be perfect for your dog. The link to the recipe is below.

    2. Hi Linda,
      My dog is 13 and only has a couple of teeth. I bake these for 15 min @ 350° then turn off the oven and let sit in there for 5 minutes. They come out soft. She loves them!

    My big doggo loved them! Any advise on how long they might keep in the fridge? Thanks for a simple and wonderful recipe!

    1. Hailey,

      They will keep for about 2 weeks in the fridge and a couple of months in the freezer (which is what I do). I’m so happy your doggo loved them! Thanks for letting me know.

    Hey, thank you for the great recipe. My dog loved it so much that he would stral the uncooked dough and tried to open the over to grab more ( he couldn’t though)
