Pumpkin & Peanut Butter Homemade Dog Biscuits - Good for your dog inside and out

Hi Bold Bakers!

When it comes to baking, no man, woman or dog will be left behind in my home. There’s no doubt that my dog Waffles gets the royal treatment here so it should be no surprise to you that I also make him Homemade Dog Biscuits.

I’m a stickler for using good ingredients to get great results and the same goes for baking my doggie treats. These Homemade Dog Biscuits are not only made of good quality ingredients but they all have benefits for your furry friends inside and out.

My dog Waffles is a 3 year old, Terrier Lhasa Apso mix. We rescued him 2 years ago from a great facility here in Los Angeles called NKLA. This organization rescues dogs from high kill areas and gives them a better chance of survival and a better chance at finding their forever home. After a lengthy adjustment period Waffles is now the furry glue that holds us together.

Just like when baking for family and friends there is something so satisfying about making Homemade Dog Biscuits for your pet. I feel immense pride when he snatches them from my hand and runs off to eat it on the carpet. The pride distracts me from the fact that he is eating my clean carpet, thanks Waffles.

I created this recipe for The Inspired Home website. It’s a place where I go to find out what new products are coming out along with tips and fantastic recipes. The Inspired Home’s mission is to inspire, inform and encourage you to make your house into a home, lead a balanced and healthy lifestyle and to create moments to celebrate and connect with your friends and family. The recipe and video for my Homemade Dog Biscuits can be found here.

I used my Fox Brands Cookie Cutter Set to make three different sizes of biscuits which not only look great but allow for portion control. You can buy the set of cookie cutters here.

These Homemade Dog Biscuits stay fresh in my Snapware Airtight Container for up to 2 weeks. They also freeze for up to 3 months. I like to refill my container every few days with biscuits form the freezer. Just leave out at room temperature for 5 minutes and then watch that tail wag.

  • In a large bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients until combined and a dough forms.

Just a comment from a 35 yr. retired German Shepherd Breeder. I made these for 10 German Shepherds a few yrs. back. Brown rice flour gives the biscuits crunch and promotes better dog digestion. Many dogs have touchy stomachs or allergies, and do not, like many people I know, tolerate wheat. If one doesn’t have the nice cutters like Emma does, you can roll your dough out in to a large square (same thickness) as in recipe and use a pizza cutter. Just run across and up and down to make squares of your preferred size. Have used these cutters… Read more »

Hi Gemma. (Bigger Bolder Baking)
This might sound funny but I want to know if you have a recipe for horse treats?

Hi Gemma,

Do you know what the measurement would be to substitute coconut flour instead of wheat. Can I omit the oatmeal. My pups are on a grain free meal plan.

Can the pumpkin puree be replaced with a different ingredient (if so, any suggestions) or be removed to just have peanut butter dog biscuits? (im guessing the amount of peanut butter might need increasing if so)

Thanks
