Pumpkin Banana Dog Treats

Pumpkin Banana Dog Treats

Our dog Grace recently ran out of dog treats so my daughter and I made her a new batch this weekend from a recipe I found on Pook’s Pantry. These healthy dog treats are made with whole wheat flour, pumpkin puree, banana, and eggs–thankfully, ingredients I had on hand. The dough was a bit sticky so we added a little more flour until it felt right and we could roll it out easily. Grace was eager to try these pumpkin banana dog treats and gobbled her first one down in seconds while eagerly awaiting a second treat. I think that means she loves them.

How to Make Pumpkin Banana Dog Treats

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat mat.

Mix the pumpkin, mashed banana, and beaten eggs together until well combined. Add the flour and mix until combined. Use more flour as needed if the dough is too sticky.

Dust the counter with flour and roll out the dough to approximately 1/4″ thickness and use a small dog treat cutter to cut out treats.

  1. My name is fenton Baade and I love cooking I just found your dog recipe and it look good but I just would to know a question how long dose there last for

    Thanks

    1. Fentob,

      Up to 2 weeks if kept in the refrigerator.

  2. Would it work to put these in a silicone cookie mold instead of doing cookie cutters?

      I used my silicone molds and it worked great. I ran out of whole wheat flour and my dough was a bit too wet for rolling out. I used1 Tablespoon for both the paw print & bones and pushed it down with a spatula., baked 35 min and they were crunchy on outside and a bit cookie like on the inside. My dogs loved them.

    Can I substitute using ground whole oats instead of flour?

    1. Flourbomb,

      I’ve never tried so I’m not sure how they would turn out. Let me know how it goes.

    I made these for my grandpuppies. I used brown rice flour and I added a couple tablespoons of bacon bits. I also used two bananas so I had to add more flour. I’m not a baker but I love making dog cookies! I keep the cookies in the freezer. My grandpuppies are large dogs so being frozen just makes them extra crunchy!

    1. Judy,

      I bet the bacon bits made them even more desirable! I also keep mine in the freezer–our Gracie girl likes them extra crunch.

  6. Do I have to put these in refrigerator? I prefer to keep mine out on the counter

    1. Hayden,

      You can but they won’t last as long. Keep an eye out for mold.
