Homemade Pumpkin Dog Treat Recipe
Ask any dog parent their pup’s favorite treat flavor, peanut butter is probably in the top three choices. Peanut butter, pumpkin puree, applesauce, plain Greek yogurt, and oats are all you need! This vet-approved homemade dog treats recipe calls for bacon, but if you’re worried about nitrates, you can keep it simple and skip the bacon.
Only use peanut butter, applesauce, and yogurt flavored without xylitol. While xylitol is a human-safe sweetener, it’s toxic to dogs. These homemade pumpkin peanut butter dog treats are ready to eat in less than 20 minutes and can be stored in the freezer for up to 4 months.
For an added calming effect, swap regular peanut butter for our CBD-infused peanut butter! Our CBD-infused peanut butter is all-natural, which means you don’t have to worry about xylitol or artificial sweeteners.
If you find that the oil from our peanut butter has separated, there’s no need to worry! This is normal for all-natural peanut butter. It takes just a few seconds to warm the peanut butter and stir until the oil blends back in.
The recipe yields 16 treats and has 1/4 tablespoon (5mg of CBD) of peanut butter per treat. Your pooch will beg for these easy homemade pumpkin peanut butter treats, but remember to feed them according to the supplementation guide on our peanut butter container.
