Your pup will love these Homemade Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats! They are healthy and wholesome – the perfect reward for your favorite furry friend! 


  • 1/2 cup pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, measured in liquid state
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (or 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour)
  • 1/4 cups quick oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment combine the pumpkin, peanut butter, coconut oil, flour, oats, and baking soda on medium-low speed, until a crumbly dough forms. Remove the dough from the mixing bowl and knead on a clean counter until dough is combined and holds together*
  3. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface until 1/4-inch thick. Using a small cookie cutter, cut the dough into shapes.
  4. Place the shapes onto the prepared baking sheet 1- inch apart. The treats won’t spread much at all.
  5. Bake for 17 – 20 minutes, depending on the size of the treat. You want them to be completely set and firm.
  6. Allow the treats to cool completely, and then let them sit out at room temperature overnight to dry out before storing in an airtight container.


I used a 1.5- inch round cutter to produce 60 dog treats.

The dough will be crumbly but should hold together when kneaded. I have found that this texture of dough makes the crunchiest dog biscuits. If you’re having trouble rolling it out, knead in another tablespoon of pumpkin.

Store airtight for up to a week, or freeze for up to 30 days
