Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Biscuits

Celebrate your four-legged friends with this healthy and easy-to-make treat!

August 6, 2018

What better way to celebrate our four-legged friends than with delicious, healthy and easy-to-make treats? Just three ingredients whips up a snack for your dog! 


  • 1 cup plus 2 teaspoons old-fashioned rolled oats, divided
  • 1/3-cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/4-cup natural peanut butter (no salt, sugar, xylitol or additives, as some are toxic to dogs)


Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Line a work surface with parchment paper.

In a food processor, pulse 2 teaspoons oats until they reach a flour-like consistency. Pour out onto work surface. 
Pulse the 1 cup oats into flour, then add in the pumpkin and peanut butter and blend until mixture forms small clumps.

Spread the 2 teaspoons oat flour lightly over the parchment on the work surface so the dough won’t stick. 

Transfer oat mixture to the prepared work surface. Pat dough into a ball and roll out on work surface to a thin (just over 1/8-inch) rectangle. 

Cut into squares with a sharp knife, or use a cookie cutter for a decorative look. Transfer the biscuits to the parchment-lined baking sheet, leaving a small space between the biscuits. They should just about cover a half-sheet pan and will not spread while baking. 

Bake for about 25 minutes, until biscuits are hard and crisp. Keep an eye out at the end, taking out one biscuit to test if necessary. They should not brown. Cool and store in an airtight container.

Cook’s note: At most grocers, you can grind just the amount of plain peanut butter you need in the bulk section. For this recipe we used local company CB’s Nuts 1-Ingredient peanut butter for the best texture.
