Fall is the perfect season for leaf-peeping and hiking with your canine companion or relaxing indoors with your furry friend and a good book! Either way, let’s take a look at some tasty fall treats you can make for your pets that are good enough for humans to eat, too!
Pumpkin Dog Treats
Pumpkins are more than cute fall decorations—they’re also a delicious and nutritious food with several health benefits for dogs! Canned pumpkin puree and other common ingredients in your home can come together to form some delightful dog treats.
Pumpkin Peanut Butter Treats can be made with 2 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour, 2 eggs, 3/4 cup of canned pumpkin puree and 3 tablespoons of all-natural peanut butter. Just combine these ingredients, roll the dough out and shape with a cookie cutter and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes for some delicious dog biscuits!
No Bake Peanut Butter Pumpkin Rolls are an easy breezy treat that comes together quickly and can stay in your fridge for up to three weeks! Combine 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1 cup of canned pumpkin puree, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 3 teaspoons of honey, and then roll small balls of this mixture in rolled oats.
Purrfect Cat Treats
Add extra fun to your lazy indoor days with your feline friend with some tasty and nutritious homemade cat treats!
Tuna Treats can be made with a 4-oz can of tuna and some other human ingredients! Combine drained tuna, 1/4 cup of tuna water, two chopped cooked egg whites, 1/4 cup of cornmeal and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, roll and cut the resulting dough, and bake treats at 350 degrees for 15–20 minutes.
Cheesy Cat Treats are perfect for cats or humans with fish allergies! Combine together 3/4 cup shredded cheddar, 1/3 cup grated Parmesan, 1/4 cup plain yogurt, 3/4 cup whole wheat flour and 1/4 cup cornmeal, and then add enough water to create a sticky dough. Roll and cut the dough, and then bake on a greased baking sheet at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
Sweet Potato Chews
Sweet potato chews are an easy canine treat that makes a delicious snack and a great alternative to rawhide! Just cut one large sweet potato into 1/4” to 1/3” slices, and bake at 250 degrees for three hours, turning halfway through baking.
