When fall arrives, so do the pumpkin-flavored treats. This year, let’s not forget our furry friends!
I have a recipe for homemade banana and pumpkin dog treats your favorite pup will love. You’ll like this recipe too because it only has four ingredients and is super simple to make.
You’ll be whipping up these tasty treats for your dog again and again–even after pumpkin season is over.
Banana and Pumpkin Dog Treats Recipe
Here’s everything you need for this simple recipe. Our homemade dog treats recipe will make about a dozen bone-shaped treats.
If you don’t already have a dog bone cookie cutter, you might like this one.
First, turn on the oven to pre-heat, then mash the banana in a mixing bowl.
Next, add the pumpkin purée, applesauce, flour and one Tablespoon water, and mix well.
Place the dog biscuit dough on a work surface you’ve dusted with flour. Knead 8-10 times, adding up to a tablespoon of water if the mixture is too dry.
Roll dough out, and cut into dog bone shapes with your cookie cutter. Place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet, and bake.
After they’ve completely cooled, you can store these banana and pumpkin dog treats in an airtight container for up to 10 days.
We hope your pup enjoys these yummy homemade treats!
