Three Deliciously Easy 3-Ingredient Pumpkin Dog Treats

diy easy pumpkin dog treat recipe

As soon as fall rolls around (or, let’s be real, as soon as September hits), everything is about pumpkins.

Pumpkin décor, lattes and food.

But what about pumpkin dog treats?

Allow your best pal to get in on the cozy fall action with homemade pumpkin dog treats.

The best part is that all of these recipes only require three ingredients and are super easy to make (the first one doesn’t even require baking!). Even better? Since many require the same ingredients, you probably have the ingredients in your home to make all three!

 

Three 3-Ingredient Pumpkin Dog Treats

Before we jump into the recipes, we have a few things to mention.

Pumpkin Puree vs. Canned Pumpkin

There’s a difference between pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie filling or canned pumpkin. Unlike the others, pumpkin puree is pure without any added spice. This is the one you need.

Soy Butter

You can substitute soy butter for peanut butter or any other type of butter you usually give your dog. Since I’m allergic to nuts, I chose soy butter. Unless your dog is allergic or has a sensitivity to soy products, it’s a healthy choice. However, as with any butter, it’s high in fat, so be mindful of how many treats you feed your pup pal.

Use Cookie Cutter or Knife

If you have seasonal or dog-themed cookie cutters, you can use them on these recipes. However, you don’t need them. Simply use a knife to cut the dough into your desired shapes. That can be larger rectangles or small, mini-treat size. The size of your treat will affect the bake time, so be sure to monitor it carefully throughout the cooking time.

Make It Into a Cereal

If your dog has a hard time chewing, you can use this method to soften the treats up. It’s also a great way to add variety to the treat. For example, sometimes my dog loves a crunch treat. But I noticed that when I add liquid to his kibble recently, he gobbles it up. If you want to try this, make treats into small shapes. Then, add desired amount of treats into a bowl. Add in a bit of water or broth and stir.

Storing

You can store all of these treats in an airtight container or a sealed plastic bag. If you’re making multiple batches, you can store them in the freezer for months. The first recipe needs to be stored in the fridge.

Doubling Recipes

If you want to make more dog treats, simply double or triple the recipe. I like to keep the batches small so that they stay fresh and since I only have one small dog, he can’t have that many before they go bad. Also, if you keep batches small, you can make all 3 of these treats to see which your dog likes best. Since they all contain similar ingredients, it won’t be too much extra work. But if you want to double or even triple it, you can use this super easy calculator.

 

#1 Dog Pumpkin Balls

These are so easy that they don’t even need to be baked. Simply mix, mold and store in the fridge. Remember to make the balls an appropriate size for your dog so they don’t swallow it whole. For this recipe, I used steel cut oats because they’re less processed. However, I would make it again with regular rolled oats because they’re easier to process and digest raw.
