Our WHOot Contributor, Courtney Budzyn knows just how important food is when it comes to her beloved furbabies.
Today she is sharing with us her healthy 4 ingredient Pumpkin Dog Treats recipe and you will love it.
As Fur Mom to Maya and Maximus, Dog Treats are a must have in her household. This 4 ingredient recipe is so much better than store bought that usually contains a whopping 34 ingredients, many of which are toxic. Courtney has this to say.
“BHA, for example, is a known carcinogen and has been shown to produce cancer and tumors on animals. Most dog treats use that ingredient twice as a preservative.
Another ingredient, by-product meal, (whether it be turkey, chicken or beef) is made using the remaining unused carcass of the animal. This includes bones, organs, beaks, blood, even tumors that were attached to the animal at the time, all of which goes into a dog treat.
With that being said, making your own homemade dog treats is insanely simple. The pumpkin is great for your dog’s digestion system too.”

Pumpkin Dog Treat Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, mix pumpkin puree, peanut butter, and eggs until well combined.
Gradually mix in flour until just incorporated and starts to form a ball. Add more flour if the dough is too sticky.
Gently knead the dough 3-5 turns until it comes together.
Roll the dough out to ¼ inch thick on a lightly floured surface.
Using a cookie cutter or butter knife, cut out your desired shape and place onto the baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Allow to cool and enjoy!
*Treats are good for about a week in a sealed bag or container, and 2 weeks when refrigerated. However, use your better judgment. You may also freeze the treats until you are ready to use them.
