Yummy in My Tummy Gluten-Free Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treat Recipe

Gluten Free Dog TreatsWhether I'm traveling with my pets or hanging out with them at home, I love to treat them to some homemade, healthy dog treats. We recently made a couple batches and sent some up to their Uncle Max in Virginia. He loved them!  And yes, Uncle Max is dog. :)

These are some of the yummiest gluten-free dog treats...and a favorite of my little ones. Plus, they're super easy to make and hard to mess up!

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup canned 100% pure pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup all natural peanut butter (with no sweeteners)
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 2 cups all purpose gluten-free flour (I use Bob's Red Mill)
  • 1 teaspon cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or lightly coat with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl mix all wet ingredients (eggs, pumpkin, and peanut butter)
  4. Combine dry ingredients (flour, cinnamon, and flaxseed) and gradually add into wet ingredients. Knead as you go. Add additional flour as needed to form dough.
  5. Knead dough into ball, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  6. Remove from fridge and do one of the following:
    • Roll onto a floured surface 1/4 inch thick and cut with the cookie cutter.
    • On a floured surface, form dough into tubular 1"-2" roll and slice into 1/4" cookies.
  7. Place on cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes.
  8. Cool and refrigerate.

Makes 5 to 6 dozen small circles.
