Making Apple Pumpkin Dog Treats
Christmas is around the corner and our greatest companions don't want us to forget them! Homemade treats are the perfect gift for your best friend. These apple pumpkin dog treats will be a favorite of your family's most loved canines and you can feel fine letting them steal a few extra. The ingredients are all natural.
This year we give tribute to our two favorite companions--one we lost this past year and another that is constantly there to keep me in shape. And if I come to bed late decides that she gets my side of the bed. And hates the cold unless she's running after birds in it. And has an alarm clock that wakes me up at 5:00am every morning. Even when it's 8 degrees outside.
So let's celebrate by giving them some apple pumpkin dog treats and the chance to tear apart all the wrapping paper this holiday season.
Gather Your Ingredients
For this recipe you will need:
- 1 apple, grated
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- ½ cup cornmeal
- 1 egg
- ½ cup pumpkin
- ½ cup water
Preheat your oven and prepare your baking sheet
Before you start making your apple pumpkin dog treats, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. This will ensure that your treats cook evenly and don't stick to the pan. You can also lightly grease the parchment paper with some coconut oil or cooking spray for added non-stick protection. Once your oven is preheated and your baking sheet is ready, you can start mixing your ingredients together.
Mix together the dry ingredients
- In a large bowl, mix together the grated apple and cinnamon. Once combined, stir in the eggs and pumpkin.
- Stir in the flour and cornmeal stirring until the mixture becomes coarse and crumbly. Add the water and knead the dough into a ball.
Roll out the dough and cut into shapes
Once the dough is formed, roll it out on a floured surface to about ¼ inch thickness. Use cookie cutters to cut the dough into fun shapes for your furry friend. Place the treats on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-25 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy. Let them cool completely before serving to your pup. These apple pumpkin dog treats are a perfect way to celebrate the fall season with your furry friend!
