Are you worried like so many other dog owners about pet food recalls and pet food safety? Our quick and easy recipe for homemade Pumpkin and Peanut Butter dog treats are all-natural, healthy and safe for your dog. Be your dog’s HERO! He or she will reward you with extra kisses.


  • 1 15 ounce can all natural pumpkin puree (label will say “all natural”)
  • 1/2 cup all natural smooth peanut butter (label will say “all natural”)
  • 3 1/2 cups instant oats (ingredient list should have one ingredient: whole grain oats)
  • 1 additional cup of instant oats (to roll treats into at the end)


Mix pumpkin puree and peanut butter until combined. You can mix by hand or use an electric mixer with a dough attachment. Slowly add 3 1/2 cups oats, mixing until incorporated. Do not overmix. You want the mixture to be a soft dough consistency that can be rolled into balls.

Scoop out the mixture and roll in your hand to make a ball that is the right size for your dog to comfortably eat. Roll and press each ball in remaining 1 cup oats and then roll in your hand again to smooth out into a ball. (Suggestion: You can roll the oat-covered balls over the sink for very easy cleanup.)

Place treats into an airtight container in the refrigerator and chill until firm, about 1 hour. Store treats in the frig. Treats will last in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.

Makes about 60 one-inch diameter balls. Approximate time from start to finish: 25 minutes.

      Yes, they can be placed in a freezer bag and frozen. They freeze and defrost very well.

    These treats sound awesome and I can’t wait to give them a try. So many of the treats on the market that my Tula enjoys are loaded with chemicals. She loves a cheese biscuit one that I make this one would be great so she can have some variety Thank you!.

    Thank you so much for the recipe. I’ve been listening to the truth about Pet Cancer from Ty Bollinger, it’s so timely to have the recipe.
