Pumpkin Apple Dog Treats

Pumpkin Apple Dog Treats on a black plate

Treat your pup to some home made goodies this holiday season. Of course, you’ll be very busy roasting turkey and toasting marshmallows on the sweet potato casserole, but these are really easy to make and with some cool cookie cutters, it's a fun project to keep the little ones busy.

Ingredients for dog treats in a bowl

When finely grating a fresh apple, it can turn in color and look more like apple sauce. This is fine and will not affect the final results. I used a Gala apple.

Oat flour in blender

No organic oat flour? Yes, it can be pricey.

Make your own oat flour by placing 2 cups of organic rolled oats in a food processor and pulse until ground. Small bits left in the flour are fine as dogs don’t mind it. For a finer flour, add 1 cup of rolled oats at a time to a blender. Process in small batches for better results.

Can’t roll out dough evenly? Me either. Don’t be a hero, pick up some Rolling Pin Bands. They’re easy to find and come in various colors. It will save you a lot of time.

If you need to freshen your dog’s breath, split the dough in half before rolling and add 2 tablespoons of fresh parsley leaves to one of the halves.

Scour for sales at the various cooking stores after each holiday and see what you can find. The cookie cutters I used were a clearance item at Williams~Sonoma.
