Peanut Butter Pumpkin Gluten-Free Dog Treat Recipe


Does one whiff of peanut butter’s nutty, creamy goodness make your dog’s butt go wild—a little shake and wag?! If so, get ready because your pooch is in for a real treat with these homemade Peanut Butter Pumpkin Gluten-Free Biscuits! 

Watch as I show you step-by-step how easy these are to make. In this video, I also talk measuring, a hack for rolling dough, and more!


 

The Benefits

As always, my homemade dog treat recipes are filled with wholesome ingredients that you or I would eat. 

Brown Rice and Oat Flours: Both of these flours are naturally gluten-free! So these treats are perfect for the pooch who suffers from gluten intolerance or simply eats a gluten-free diet for health reasons. 

Peanut Butter: Peanut butter is loaded with healthy fats and protein, which are great for your pooch. When picking out the perfect jar to use in your homemade dog treats, though, make sure to read the ingredient label very carefully. Some brands use Xylitol to sweeten their peanut butter, which is incredibly toxic to dogs.

100% Pure Pumpkin Purée: Loaded with fiber, pumpkin purée is great for your dog’s digestive health. Just make sure to use 100% pure pumpkin purée and not pumpkin pie filling, which is loaded with not-so-good-for-your-dog spices and sugar! 


Let’s Talk Cookie Cutters

Before you start baking homemade dog treats, it’s always fun to stock up on cute dog cookie cutters. For these, I used my favorite dog bone cutter. It’s very sturdy and super cheap on Amazon. If you need one, here’s a link:
