“Delicious and Nutritious: Peanut Butter Pumpkin Treats for Your Furry Friend”

Are you looking for the perfect fall treat for your beloved dog? Look no further than these homemade peanut butter pumpkin treats! Not only are they delicious, but they’re also packed with nutrients that are beneficial for your dog’s overall health.

Pumpkin is a great source of fiber, which can help with digestion and prevent constipation. It’s also rich in antioxidants, which can help boost the immune system. Peanut butter, on the other hand, is a great source of protein and healthy fats. Just be sure to use all-natural peanut butter that doesn’t contain any added sugar or salt.

To make these tasty treats, you’ll need:

·         1 cup whole wheat flour

·         1/2 cup pumpkin puree

·         1/2 cup peanut butter

·         1 egg

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, pumpkin puree, peanut butter, and egg. Stir until well combined. Roll the dough out onto a lightly floured surface to about 1/4 inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut out the treats. You can use any shape you like, or simply cut the dough into small squares. Place the treats onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake the treats for 20-25 minutes, or until they’re firm to the touch. Allow them to cool completely before serving them to your dog. These treats can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
