I figured that we shouldn't be humancentric, so, to show that we cook just as well for our canine friends as for our human ones, my daughter got this one from a lady she used to work for.  I can attest that dogs go absolutely bananas  over them.  Considering the ingredients, if we added some chocolate chips, they might make pretty good cookies too.


 Makes 25 servings

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 40 minutes

Total time: 1 hour, 40 minutes



  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Whisk together the flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. Add water as needed to help make the dough workable, but the dough should be dry and stiff. Roll the dough into a 1/2-inch-thick roll. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until hard, about 40 minutes.

CAUTION:  Per our friend Kavika, some peanut butter products contain an ingredient called XYLITOL, a sugar substitute used in some low sugar or sugar free products.  This can be dangerous to dogs.  Don't use any peanut butter with this ingredient in it to make this recipe.

This one is pretty cool.  Our dog loves them.  They can also be baked in a mould type cookie sheet to make them into whatever shape you might want.

Sounds great but be careful of the peanut butter you use. Some have a very deadly ingredient for dogs in them. 

Wiki thinks salmon is the best treat ever.

Wiki goes fishing with you.  She's able to catch her own salmon.  I just have this vision of the fish coming close to the boat and Wiki jumping into the water to grab it and tossing it aboard.

The pumpkin is really good for their digestion too.

Unless you have a peanut allergy there aren't any ingredients or method of processing that mean they wouldn't be edible by humans.  I'm sure it could be a lot healthier than a lot of Kellogs type cereals.

Unfortunately, my puppy doesn't like anything with pumpkin in the treat. I've tried! Maybe I can substitute pumpkin with something else though. He loves watermelon and strawberries. Hm. Maybe "PB&'J'" bites... not really jelly, but rather pureed strawberries instead of pumpkin.

Aubrey, I was looking this one over and the thought occurred to me that you might be able to get some canned yams and mash them up to take the place of the pumpkin.
