Oh, hi there!

I’ve been doing some holiday baking this week for my friends, annnd by baking I mean homemade dog treats, and by friends I mean my dog.

That counts, right?

I am 100% not the type of person who makes food for their dog, except for that right now, this exact very minute, I am that person. !!! I do not even know myself anymore. Making my own dog treats? Honestly. File under Things You Said You’d Never Do That Now Bring You a Weird Amount of Great Joy.

Something about the holidays and the music and the snow and cuddly Sage in a French blue striped turtleneck sweater just got to me, and in a moment of Christmas miraculousness, I became that person that I always rolled my eyes at. A little pumpkin, a little peanut butter, and a little whole wheat flour later, and we were in dog treat business.

Thankfully, Sage doesn’t have any special allergies or dietary needs, so there’s really no reason for me to make her homemade dog treats other than the fact that I love her something fierce and needed a break from cookies for a minute. But conveniently, this homemade dog treats recipe makes a TON and we know lots of other neighbor-ly dogs who can and will appreciate a little gift bag of soft-baked, peanut butter and bacon glazed homemade dog treats.

That drizzle, though. I mean, daaaaang.

Dog treats got me like 😍😍😍😍😍

Homemade Dog Treats
Author: Pinch of Yum
Serves: 30-ish large dog treats
 

Ingredients
Dog biscuits:
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup oil*
  • 2½ cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
Glaze:
  • 2 tablespoons bacon grease, melted
  • ¼ cup smooth peanut butter

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine pumpkin, peanut butter, eggs, and oil in a bowl. Add in baking soda and whole wheat flour. Stir until a stiff dough forms. Knead dough or mix just until flour is incorporated.
  3. Roll out dough with a rolling pin and use a cookie cutter to cut out dog bone shapes, or just bake into little circles like cookies. Bake for 15 minutes.
  4. Whisk the bacon grease and peanut butter until very smooth. Drizzle over the treats and cool till glaze hardens (it does best in the fridge or freezer).

Notes
We just used a basic canola oil, but we also give Sage coconut oil for her fur/skin, and I think coconut oil would work nicely here. You can also use coconut oil in place of the bacon grease in the glaze, but, I mean, come on. It’s bacon grease. SO YUMMY.

All ingredients are considered safe for dogs, but as with humans, it’s always a good idea to make sure there are no doggie allergies or sensitivities to any of the ingredients.
