Every pet parent wants what is best for their fur babies, especially when it comes to their diet. While it is easy to grab a bag of store bought treats for Fido, many pet owners are finding that it is healthier to make them at home. When you know exactly what is going into your dog’s food and it’s most likely items you already have at home in the pantry, it’s a huge win for you and your pet. Give these adorable peanut butter cookie treats a try.

Prep Time: 25 minutes Cook
Time: 25 minutes
⅔ cup pumpkin puree
¼ cup peanut butter
2 large eggs
3 cups whole wheat flour, or more, as needed
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside.
2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat pumpkin puree, peanut butter and eggs on medium-high until well combined, about 1-2 minutes. Gradually add 2½ cups flour at low speed, beating just until incorporated. Add an additional ¼ cup flour at a time just until the dough is no longer sticky.
3. Working on a lightly floured surface, knead the dough 3-4 times until it comes together. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough to ¼-inch thickness. Using cookie cutters, cut out desired shapes and place onto prepared baking sheet.
4. Place into oven and bake until edges are golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.
5. Let cool completely.
