  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour, or more, as needed
  • 1 apple, cored and grated
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped finely
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped finely


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Whisk the pumpkin puree with the beaten eggs until well combined and creamy.
  • Gradually add 2 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour while mixing with a rubber spatula until just combined. Add 1/4 cup of flour at a time just until the dough is no longer sticky.
  • Add the apple, mint, and parsley then mix until incorporated. Add more flour, as needed, if the dough is too wet. 
  • Working on a floured 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 a bit crisp, about 25-30.
  • Cool completely on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container in the freezer or refrigerator. Enjoy.
