For anyone who owns a dog, you’re arguably aware of how important treats are for your pupper. Dogs are God-sent creatures that are far too pure and wonderful to be without treats, and so we as their owners must do our due diligence and ensure our doggos are receiving treats whenever necessary.
Most of us purchase dog treats from stores, and while there are enough options out there nowadays to ensure you’re giving your dog high-quality, safe ingredients, there are more and more people who are not only making their own dog food, but also treats.
I thought I would share a recipe detailing how to make homemade dog treats for anyone wanting to try their hand at some canine baking, and this recipe comes from allrecipes.com.
- 2 ½ cups whole wheat flour
- 2 large eggs
- ½ cup canned pumpkin
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon water, or more if necessary (Optional)
- Gather all ingredients.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Combine flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl; stir with a spatula until combined.
- Transfer mixture to a work surface and work it with your hands until mixture starts to come together. Add 1 teaspoon water at a time (only if needed) to help make the dough workable, but don’t add too much as it should be dry and stiff.
- Roll the dough to a thickness of 1/2 inch. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces and transfer to a baking sheet
- Bake in the preheated oven until dog treats are golden brown and crunchy, about 40 minutes. Let cool before serving to your dog,” the recipe explains.
There are plenty of other dog treat recipes out there for you to pick from, and I’m willing to bet your dog will appreciate just about any kind.
