National Cookie Day: ‘3’ Dog-Friendly Pumpkin Cookies

Who minds an occasion especially dedicated towards treats? December 4th National Cookie Day is the ideal day to bring out your baking creativity and have a little fun with your loved ones.

While celebrating, don’t get about your little fur friend who also deserves to celebrate this day with the family. However, you need to keep in mind that having fun doesn’t mean compromising health and nutrition. Dog treats are good occasionally, but they should only comprise 10% of your dog’s diet.

Autumn embarks the pumpkin season, and besides humans, dogs also like the taste of pumpkins. It even helps them with diarrhea and constipation.

Since dogs can’t sip a pumpkin spiced latte, we’ve come up with the best dog-friendly pumpkin cookies recipe that is perfect for this occasion.

Frozen Pumpkin Treats

These pumpkin dog treats only include two ingredients that are, plain yogurt and pumpkin puree.

Take 1 cup of both the ingredients, mix them in a bowl, then pour the mixture into the mold and leave it free for at least a day.

Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Treats

Take 2 cups flour, 1 cup canned pumpkin, and ½ cup peanut butter and mix them all in a bowl to form a dough.

The next step you’ll have to do is to preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spread the dough onto a large surface and then cut it into different shapes with your preferred cookie cutter.

Place these yummy treats on a cookie sheet and let them bake for 12 minutes.
