chock full of protein, healthy fats, and some fiber, these treats are sure to make your dog wag its tail!
All you need is four ingredients to make these easy Peanut Butter and Pumpkin dog treats. These little bit-sized treats aren’t only yummy for your pup, but it is good for him/her, too!
Pumpkin helps with the dog’s digestion tract. Gus had a problem when one of his (TMI warning) anal glands ruptured. It was not a pleasant sight. The vet suggested giving him a spoonful of pumpkin in his kibble once a day to help regulate his.. um.. anal secretions. Okay, I’m done with that! (TMI warning over)
You have some healthy fats with the peanut butter. Gus drools over peanut butter. I don’t’ know if all dogs like peanut butter, but all the dogs I know love peanut butter. The greek yogurt gives the treats a hefty amount of protein which is great for your dog’s muscles and such.

1 cup 100% pumpkin
1 cup greek yogurt (unflavored)
1/2 cup peanut butter (I used my Fluffy Honey one)
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
Preheat the oven to 350*.
In a mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin, yogurt, and peanut butter until smooth. Slowly combine the flour until well-mixed.
Using a scooper (mine was a 3 tsp one) scoop uniform balls onto a greased baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Let cool and give your dog a treat!
Store in the refrigerator.
