I can’t believe that I’m the “mother” of a 7-year-old fur baby!!! Time sure flies. While I was traveling during Dante’s actual birthday on November 7th, I had plans as soon as I got home to celebrate my boy and make him some healthy puppy treats!
Health Pumpkin & Peanut Butter Puppy Treats
These were a HIT with every dog in the house.. and I will say that Dante is embarrassingly PICKY, but he loved these!
1 Cup Organic Pumpkin Puree
1/2 Cup All Natural Peanut Butter
1 3/4 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Put all ingredients in bowl and combine until it’s not sticky but clumpy.
While you can roll these out and use a cookie cutter, I have this BPA-free silicone mold in bone shapes. It worked perfectly for these treats.
I put my mixture about 3/4 of the way into the mold and really pushed it into the mold so that it would take shape.
I baked for 10 minutes as my treats were pretty thick, but could be baked for 8 minutes for thinner treats.
I let them cool completely and then flipped the mold over and gently pushed them out. They can be stored in an air tight container for up to 3 months.
Dante LOVED them and definitely let me know. Abby did as well, and Chewy the chihuahua when crazy over them. They were so easy to make with such simple ingredients!
I call that a successful birthday!! Happy 7th Birthday, Dante!!! He has been the light of my life since I got him at 3 months. He is the best dog and most loyal companion.. he is also quite a wonderful snuggler! Love you, buddy!
