Jumpstart that #FallFeeling with this healthy take on pumpkin spice dog treats. Featuring nutritious pumpkin puree and a blend of spices that will send forth some amazing smells from your oven.
One word of caution: nutmeg, a standard ingredient in commercial pumpkin pie spice, is not good for dogs, so you’re better off following our recipe here rather than using a pre-mixed spice blend. We replaced nutmeg with earthy turmeric, which also brightens the color of these tasty treats.
Pumpkin Spice Dog Treats
Yield 2 trays
- 1 1/3 cup oat flour
- 1 cup tapioca flour
- 2/3 cup coconut flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp turmeric
- 1/2 tsp ginger
- pinch of allspice
- pinch of clove
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 egg
- 1 cup pumpkin
- 2 tsp molasses
- fun jack o' lantern cookie cutter (optional)
Preheat oven to 350º and move oven racks to the middle so you can use two cookie sheets at once.
Combine dry ingredients in the bowl of food processor and pulse lightly to combine.
Add wet ingredients, and pulse intermittently until the dough comes together.
Turn dough out onto a floured board, adding additional oat flour until dough is no longer sticky.
Cut dough into whatever shapes you fancy, placing onto parchment-lined cookie sheets.
Bake for 30 minutes, then turn off the oven but leave the cookies inside to cool for extra crunch.
