Your dog will love these DIY 8 ingredient Healthy Peanut Butter Pumpkin Doggie Biscuits packed with nutritious fresh spinach, zucchini, carrots, and oats.
Meet Sassy, our 7-year-old Shih Tzu. Don’t let these blue eyes fool you, as She lives up to her name. What a cheeky handful, and a heavy personality weighing in at 10 pounds…
Honestly, you guys, when I made these I was thinking how cute… but knew my girl would probably turn up her nose.
She is kinda finicky with treats. Actually 100% picky. To my surprise, she ate them while I took some snaps in my studio!
Next, she started to hide them in her spots in the house….you know, the couch, under the pillows of our bed, and she began to pace around the house holding them in her mouth.
Yup, she likes them. A lot.
Cut them into any shapes, but how cute to put your beloved doggies name on them?
I found the dog biscuit cutter on Etsy! And would be a sweet gift….
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
- 3 cups whole wheat flour or more as needed
- 1 carrot peeled and shredded
- 1 zucchini shredded
- 1 cups baby spinach chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Shread the zucchini, carrot, and spinach in a food processor or with a hand grater.
In a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat pumpkin puree, peanut butter, and eggs on medium-high until well combined, about 1-2 minutes.
Gradually add old-fashioned oats and 2 1/2 cups flour at low speed, beating just until incorporated. Add an additional 1/2 cup flour at a time just unit the dough is no longer stick. Add shredded carrot, zucchini, and spinach, beating just until incorporated.
Working on a lightly floured surface, knead the dough 3-4 times until it comes together. The dough will be tough. Using a rolling pin roll the dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using (bone or heart-shaped) cookie cutter, cut out desired shapes and place onto the prepared baking sheet.
Place into oven and bake until the edges are golden brown about 30 minutes.
Then turn off the oven, and let the biscuits cool and dry in the oven for a couple of hours.
Let them dry well for a few days on the kitchen counter, then store the dry biscuits in an airtight container or cookie jar on the counter for up to a month.
Recipe inspired and slightly adapted from Damn Delicious I found the dog biscuit cutter on Etsy, super cute! And would be a sweet gift.... If your dog is allergic to peanut butter, simply substitute additional pumpkin puree or sweet potato puree.
My Sassy girl, she just melts my heart….
The word “Cookie” now means get up, wiggle the tail, pull paw up for maximum cuteness, and wait for a homemade biscuit from the cookie jar. Daddy might just be giving her a few too many these days, well with those baby blue eyes ya can’t blame him.
Totally 100% Sassy approved, hope you try this fun DIY cooking project and thanks again to Chungah at Damn Delicious for having a great recipe for our beloved doggies to enjoy!
