Tails will be wagging for these homemade doggie treats!

These no-grain doggie treats are made with all-natural almond butter, pumpkin, egg, cinnamon and ginger! Now, your furry friend can enjoy a little of the “Pumpkin Spice” craze too! You can swap peanut butter for the almond butter, just make sure either do not contain any artificial sweeteners – better with no sweeteners.

The pumpkin should be pure canned pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling. I used a little bit of cinnamon and ginger, not pumpkin pie spice because clove oil and nutmeg have components in them that are not healthy for dogs in large amounts (even though this wouldn’t be a large amount – better safe than sorry.) …and of course you know your pet best, so please only make treats with ingredients you know are safe for your sweet pet.

      Thanks Ashley! You can sub out with peanut butter if your dog can’t have almond butter.

      Dogs can have peanuts, almonds, and cashews in moderation. Too much will cause abdominal distress & diarrhea. The nuts to avoid completely are black walnuts and pistachios.

    Hi, recipe says canned pumpkin, can’t but that in Scotland I’ve tried many places, can I use fresh pumpkin?, sounds a silly question but you say not pumpkin pie filling again which can’t get here!

    No flour of any type is the right? Won’t it be too soft and slso not be hard once baked?

      I know – seems strange! You can see how they bake up and get cracks on the outside. You can adjust the bake time to be chewy or firmer on the inside!

      You should only feed your pet foods that you and your vet have deemed safe.
      These treats can be made with various nut butters.
      From what I’ve read some dogs can have almond butter in small amounts.

        Almonds are okay for dogs. If you have a dilemma, please read this article: dogsnsox.com/blogs/expert-advice/can-dogs-eat-almond-butter There is clearly stated that dogs CAN eat almonds.

      The recipe calls for 1/3 cup – you’ll have leftovers from the smaller or larger can. You can always freeze any leftover pumpkin.

      Cool place should be fine for several days – there aren’t preservatives in most homemade pet treats, that’s why best to fridge/freeze.

    Canned pumpkin is not really thing here in Australia. We have a pumpkin called a Queensland blue, when you boil and mash, it is fairly dry, Do you think that could be a reasonable swap out? One way to try is to just do it I suppose. These are the sort of treats I buy to keep beside my chair because they are little and this is the first I’ve seen a recipe for little treats… Thanks Tina….🤩💜

      I wonder if you could try sweet potato Lindi – cook it and smush it up.

      Thanks so much for your thoughts – I’ve read conflicting articles. But of course only feed your pets what you and your vet deem safe.

      Yes, dogs can have cinnamon. It’s just like most everything else; in moderation. Cinnamon also acts as a natural preservative for the treats.
