RECIPE: No-Bake Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats

The last thing I want to do in July or August is turn on my oven. Luckily, this healthy, homemade dog treat requires no such thing.

OK, folks, it has been sweltering lately, and the last thing I want to do is turn on my oven.

But let’s be honest, Banjo is still a hungry puppy and deserves some homemade treats.

So I’ve decided on a “no-bake” option. Four ingredients and simple steps make up this chilly treat for these hot summer days.

No-Bake Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Ingredients

Mix the pumpkin, peanut butter and milk until well combined.

Directions

  1. Mix the pumpkin, peanut butter and milk until well combined.
  2. Stir in 2½ cups of the oatmeal.
  3. Using a cookie scoop, create balls of dough and roll them in the remaining ½ cup of oatmeal to coat each treat.
  4. Cover the balls and refrigerate for 1 hour.
This healthy recipe makes about 20 dog treats, which you can store for 1 week in the fridge.
Pumpkin, in moderation, is a great source of fiber for dogs.

Banjo could barely contain her excitement when it was time for the taste test. We actually had to go outside to keep her drool from puddling on my clean floors.

When the moment of truth happened, she gobbled up the snack in 1 bite and impatiently sniffed the grass for crumbs.

These are definitely a winner in her book, but she’ll have to work on her patience because they keep for 1 week in the refrigerator, so Banjo will be enjoying them in moderation.

Within seconds, she had gobbled up this treat in a single bite.
