Pumpkin Spice Dog Treats

Pumpkin season is here, and now our dogs can indulge on this wonderful flavor! Made with only 4 ingredients… How simple is that? The dough is great to work with. The texture is an airy and delicate crisp, after being baked. I was able to make 3 dozen (1 1/2 inch) pumpkin shaped dog treats. Our dogs loved them! 

>> Save those chicken drippings, after you slow cook, or roast a chicken.

Remember, to keep all the candy away from your pets. Keep a freshly baked batch of these pumpkin spice dog treats available for your dogs.

Pumpkin puree is high in fiber and can help your dogs digestion process. 

Cinnamon has been known to help dogs with arthritis and joint stiffness. It is listed as non-toxic for dogs, cats, and horses, by the ASPCA.

Fats (chicken drippings) – Dogs need fats and oils in their diets. It helps their skin and coats to stay healthy, and shiny.

Pumpkin Spice Dog Treats – Makes 3 dozen (1 1/2 inch treats)   pumpkin spice dog treats

  • 1/3 cup chicken drippings (with fat)
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree (100% real pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups of All-purpose flour

Step One: Preheat the oven to 350 F degrees. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the chicken drippings, pumpkin puree, and cinnamon. Stir in the flour. Mix until a dough starts to form. If the dough is a little sticky, sprinkle in a Tablespoon of flour. The dough should be soft, pliable, and easy to work with. 

Step Two: Flour the counter, and place dough on top of floured area. Sprinkle more flour on top of the dough. Flatten out the dough with your hands. Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out desired shapes. Place on a baking sheet (you can place them close together, they won’t spread).

Step Three: Bake in the preheated oven, for 35 minutes. Allow to fully cool, before giving to your dogs.  

Note: Chicken drippings – the juices and fat in the bottom of a pan, from roasting or slow cooking a chicken. Chicken fat helps keep the dogs coat shiny and healthy.

    I can’t wait to try this recipe. What would you recommend as a substitution for the chicken drippings? Thanks.

    1. Vanessa

      Hi Marni!
      You could use bacon grease, or sausage drippings. Or, a combination. The fat is what gives the treats their texture.

    Any substitution ideas for a grain-free treat?

    1. Vanessa

      Hi Chris,
      I don’t have any experience in the grain-free department. You could try coconut flour. If it works, let me know. :-)

    Cannot tell how much of each ingredient is needed due to the ads that are covering them! Would have been a great recipe for our dogs.
