Pumpkin Dog Treats

I have grown my own pumpkins the last several years and they have been absolutely prolific!

I decided to make my pups a healthy treat from scratch and came across this idea…


It called for canned pumpkin – not to be confused with pumpkin pie filling, the spices can give pups an upset stomach -but instead, I used a couple small, fresh pumpkins. 


I’d say it was a hit! Lady tried stealing one from Zeus after she had finished hers and Bianca was not interested in sharing!

Want the recipe?

1 C pumpkin, peeled and seeded
1 apple, peeled and cored 
1 egg
4 C oatmeal 

I put the peeled and cored apple and pumpkin in my crock pot for 2 hours to cook it until soft.


Add the egg and oatmeal, then form into treats (I did it “drop cookie” style, but you can roll them out and cut them with cute cookie cutters). 

Bake at 400 F for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.

They store up to a week in the fridge. I’m freezing the extras for longer storage. 

If you try these out, let me know what you think! Drop a comment below!


Success! You're on the list.
