Total Time 15 minutesminutes
½cupno sugar or salt added peanut butter½ cup more for drizzle
2cupsbrown rice flour
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine all ingredients in order and beat until well combined. Dough should look crumbly but will stick when placed into a ball.
Split dough in half and roll into a ball. Place ball of dough between two layers of parchment paper.
First, flatten with the ball with the palm of your hand, and then roll with rolling pin. The dough should be about ¾ inch thick.
Once flattened, use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes. Carefully lift and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat until all of your dough is used.
Place in oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. For a crisper treat, flip over treats and cook for an additional 6 minutes or until crisp. You may need to adjust baking times depending on treat thickness and type of cookie sheet.
While treats are baking, heat additional peanut butter for 20 to 30 seconds in the microwave or until smooth and creamy. Once treats are finished cooking, drizzle on peanut butter.
Let cool completely before serving to your dog.
TIP: Watch out when you are at the grocery store that you buy pure pumpkin purée and not canned pumpkin pie filling.
TIP: The best part of this great recipe is how well they freeze. Make a double batch of this homemade dog treats recipe so that you always have a supply of your own homemade dog treats on hand.
TIP: I used a medium-sized dog bone cookie cutter to create these. But you can use a traditional circle cookie cutter or a glass. If you have other cookie cutters in cute shapes, you could use those as well. You could also use smaller cookie cutters and use them as training treats if you’d like.
TIP: For a more senior dog whose teeth are not what they used to be, you can break the cookies into smaller pieces or put them in their bowl with a small amount of water to soften them up.
