Tasty Tuesday - Peanut Butter and Pumpkin

What dog doesn't love peanut butter? Or pumpkin? Not any that I've ever had the pleasure of feeding :). So I found a recipe that put these two awesome and amazing ingredients together! Recipe found at Design Crush Blog.

Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Treats

When I first looked over this recipe, I have to admit, I got a bit overwhelmed. I'm not a very good baker, I mean HELLO I only bake dog treats because they don't care if they are ugly or don't taste good LOL, so the recipe at first glance was a bit intimidating. So I called Alison and made her come over and make them with me :). For disclosure sake - I did not use a hand mixer or a stand mixer (I don't even have one these!) nor was a paddle attachment (whatever that is) used. We used our hands, I guess they are our human paddle attachments, LOL.


  • 2 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3 Tbsp peanut butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place all ingredients in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, use your paddle attachment (see paragraph above, LOL). Mix on low for about a minute or until the dough starts to come together. It won't be one big ball yet, but a bunch of smaller ones.
  3. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Work it together into a large ball, then roll it out to about 1/4 inch thickness. You can use a cookie cutter for shapes or a knife to cut strips.
  4. Roll out the scraps again and again until there's not enough dough left to work with.
  5. Please the treats on a baking sheet lightly coated with cooking spray (I used parchment paper instead). Also, note they don't expand so you can cram them on there :).
  6. Bake 30 minutes. Let cool completely. Makes 75+ treats (number depends on size of treats you cut).
Treats on the cooling rack! Almost ready!
