Homemade Pumpkin Dog Treats Recipe

Pumpkin Dog Treats Recipe

I have been making my own dog treats for years. The dogs seem to like them better than store bought and I know that my treats are healthier for them. These days you can’t be too careful about the ingredients found in pet food and treats. I had a can of leftover pumpkin from my Thanksgiving baking and thought I would try making some homemade pumpkin dog biscuits. They turned out great and the dogs seem to really enjoy them.

Pumpkin Dog Treats Recipe


1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
3 tablespoons applesauce
2 eggs
3/4 cup canned pumpkin (not pie filling)
1 tablespoon molasses
1/4 cup water

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and grease cookie sheets. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix until thoroughly incorporated. (Note: I ended up adding a bit more flour because my batter was slightly too loose.)

Drop the dough onto a greased cookie sheet using a teaspoon or small cookie scoop, approximately 1 inch apart. Bake for 14 minutes or until the cookies are firm. Move to wire rack to cool.

Recipe should make 2 – 3 dozen, depending on the size of your scoop.

  6. My dogs absolutely LOVE pumpkin. Gave it to one of them when he was constipated – worked great. Sometimes put so in their bowls with their food.

  7. These Sound Great! I am going to have to test these too! I love making things from home, its cheaper and better for your pupper!
