Pumpkin Puppy Treats!

Don't forget your pets while you're in the kitchen this Thanksgiving! Jasper and Westby (our two pups) love these pumpkin treats. Pumpkin is great for your dog's digestive system. I found a recipe for pumpkin treats online and slightly modified it. Apparently cats will eat these as well. My cat, Beauie, is a bit particular so he didn't want any.

Pumpkin Puppy Treats

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup oats (not the instant kind)
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

additional 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour for rolling the dough.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a food processor blend applesauce and pumpkin until smooth. In a separate bowl mix flour and oats. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix gently until a dough forms. roll out so it is 1/4 inch thick. Cut shapes with a cookie cutter. Place on a greased, or parchment lined, cookie sheet. Bake 7 minutes. Flip treats over and bake another 5 minutes.
