As everyone is making homemade candies, I decided to make some homemade dog treats for my puppies. They deserve something delicious and healthy too, right? If you agree, then check your pantry, and let’s get baking!
These biscuits are made with 5 ingredients and I guarantee your pup(s) will love them! They are flavored with pumpkin and cinnamon and can be drizzled with a peanut butter icing for an extra oomph!
Requires 20 minutes of your time, and lasts for 1 week, depending how many pups you have and how many treats you give them a day. If you buy dog treats often, then you know it can be expensive just to treat your little ones to something delicious.
This is a cheaper alternative, plus you know what your pup is eating, which is a win-win in my book. Hope your little trickers love this homemade treat!
Until next time friends, Namaste. ♥

Pumpkin Flavored Dog Treats
These Pumpkin Flavored Dog Treats requires 5 ingredients, are easy to make, and are a healthy and affordable alternative treat for your pup!
- 1 flax egg *
- 2 tbsp coconut oil melted
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour plus more for dusting
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Peanut Butter Icing optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Prepare flax egg* in a bowl by adding 1 tbsp ground flax seen with 2 tbsp water. Let mixture sit for a few minutes, or until it becomes sticky (consistency of an egg white).
Add melted coconut oil and pumpkin puree to the bowl and mix to combine.
Add flour and cinnamon on top of mixture, tossed together first, then mix until a dough is formed.
Sprinkle about 1 tsp of flour on a smooth surface and roll out the dough to 1 cm thick. Use a dog biscuit cutter to make shapes (or use a top of a glass). Add to baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes.
Make Peanut Butter Icing while the treats are baking. Once the treats are completely cool, drizzle the icing on top and place treats in the freezer for 5-10 minutes, or until the icing hardens. Treat your pup afterwards!
Store in a cookie jar, or in a glass container at room temperature for 1 week.
