Pumpkin is plentiful in Autumn, so why not make some delicious treats for your dogs? Chef Janie shares her recipe for pumpkin dog biscuits.
“Our Siberian Husky pup loves these biscuits I made up a few weeks ago,” says Chef Janie. “They stay fresh in container for over a month. They really clean her teeth and breath…keep her coat shiny. Great for training treats as well.”
This recipe calls for:
2 cups of flour (can be 1 cup whole wheat and 1 cup all purpose, or 2 of either)
1/2 cup sweet rice flour
1/2 cup of sweet potato flour
2 tbsp potato flour (still has peel on them)
1 1/4 cups of oats
pinch of salt
1 1/4 – 1 1/3 cup of pure pumpkin
2 large eggs
1/2 cup peanut butter (no sugar, no sweetener)
3 or 4 drops fish oil (optional)
Note: she adds a bit of garlic (for flea protection) to her recipe but cautions garlic and onion is NOT good for dogs and should be only used in very small amounts. We recommend you don’t add any dried garlic.
Please check with your veterinarian for any/all ingredients you may wish to use in homemade treats.
As Chef Janie notes, you can adjust this recipe to suit your pups likes. “You can exchange all for Gluten-free flours as well. You can remove the garlic if this is a problem for you or pup,” she adds.
