Windsor's Canine Kitchen: Pumpkin & Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Pumpkin is a beneficial addition to the diet of most canines. It's high in soluble fiber, and it's also a great source of Carotene, Vitamin A, and Vitamin C! It's a great thing to have on hand when you own dogs, in the canned form (pumpkin puree, NOT pumpkin pie mix) because it can help resolve instances of diarrhea from upset stomach as well as constipation. In this installment of Windor's Canine Kitchen we're going to highlight a simple recipe that can make incorporating pumpkin into your pet's diet more fun for both you and Fido!

What you'll need:

  • 2 cups of whole wheat flour or white flour (you can substitute this with alternatives such as the cricket flour discussed in our last cooking article if you want to add more protein)

  • 1 cup of pumpkin puree (fresh or canned, but do NOT use pie filling)

  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter (natural or low-sodium is best, make sure it doesn’t contain the toxic artificial sweetener Xylitol)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F.

  2. Add the pumpkin and peanut butter to a mixing bowl and stir to combine.

  3. Stir in the flour until the mixture creates an acceptable dough.

  4. Roll out the dough to approximately 1/2 inch thick on a lightly floured surface.

  5. Cut out whatever shapes you desire using cookie cutters (you can alternatively roll small balls and then press them into 1/2 inch thick coins).

  6. Place the treats about half an inch apart on a cookie sheet.

  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

  8. Let cool completely before giving any of them to your dog.

See?! Couldn't be easier!
