Everyone knows that Christmas cookies are one of the best things about December. I mean, doesn’t everyone gain 11lbs this month?! Just me? When we aren’t reading and snuggling with our pups, we like to spoil our guys by baking THEM cookies! Well…Kaylie does it a lot more often than me but she’s sweet enough to make enough for EVERYONE! Here are our favorite simple recipes for sweet treats for your furry babes. Enjoy!
PB Pumpkin Treats
- 1/3 cup unsweetened pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
- 1 cup flour
Preheat your oven to 300F.
Add all ingredients to a bowl and stir to combine (I use a food processor for this because I’m lazy). Roll your dough out until it’s a little less than 1/4 inch thick. Cut out your treats using a dog bone cookie cutter or any other fun shape. Place your treats on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes. Allow the treats to cool completely before feeding them to your dog (duh.)
Pumpkins are full of vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber, zinc, protein, carbohydrates that give many health benefits to your pup. The vitamin A aids in eye, skin and coat health. Fiber is great for your pups digestive health, and provides intense hydration into your dogs diet.
PB Banana Treats
- 2 ripe bananas
- 3 cups of oat flour
- 1/3 cup natural peanut butter
Preheat your oven to 350F.
Add all the ingredients into food processor and mix. When it’s combined, roll your dough out to 1/4 inch thick. Cut out your treats in the shape you’ve picked and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet and back for 20-25 minutes. Allow the treats to cool and watch your pup go nuts for your delicious homemade treats!
Bananas are a great source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin C, vitamin B6, fiber, biotin, and copper. Bananas help boost the immune system, replenish electrolytes, and promote skin and coat health. In moderation, bananas can make a healthy, low-calorie treat for dogs.
