Dogs love peanut butter and pumpkin especially when it’s in a dog treat.

I enjoy making healthy dog treats just a much as I enjoy making people cookies. And dogs really do love every bite of these new peanut butter & pumpkin-flavored dog treats. In fact, this recipe might be their new favorite.

I bet you already have these simple ingredients in your kitchen:
~ eggs
~peanut butter
~ canned pumpkin puree
~ flour
~cinnamon
~ginger
~salt
~optional honey
~water

Cookie cutters aren’t required they are fun though. Rolling out the dough and cutting square shapes is an option too, especially if you are short on time. Your furry canine friends will love these peanut butter & pumpkin treats in any shape or form.

I used two sizes of cookie cutters because we have a large Labrador and my daughter and son-in-law have a smaller Cockapoo. All pups love getting a reward!

Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Dog Treats      35 Cookies depending on size
1 cup peanut butter, unsalted natural is preferred either crunchy or creamy.
2 LG eggs
1/2 cup pumpkin puree, not pie filling

2 cups of flour, whole wheat is preferred. I used 1 cup of whole wheat and one cup of unbleached white flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp salt
1 Tbsp honey, this is optional

Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner.

In a medium-size mixing bowl add peanut butter, eggs, pumpkin, water, and optional honey. Mix well.

Add flour and spices. Stir to combine all ingredients.

On a lightly floured surface knead the dough for about 1 minute. Divide dough into 4 portions.
Roll one portion of dough into a circle about 1/4 inch  – 3/8 inch thick on a floured surface.
Use cookie cutters to cut out the dog treats and lay them on the prepared baking sheet about 1/2 inch apart.

Bake dog treats for about 15 minutes. Let treats cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack.
