As we mentioned in the article about Halloween, your pets can not eat the sweets of the trick or treat bucket, but that is not a reason to leave them without some DIY treats.
No-Baked Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Treats ideal for Halloween
This recipe doesn’t need baking.
But before the recipe, we would like to remind you that you should always ask your veterinarian before introducing a new treat or food ingredient to the diet of our pet.
1 cup pumpkin puree. As a reminder, pumpkin is good for dogs in small portions. You should never give them something that you would not eat, so, for example, if there is a moldy part, it should be removed.
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup milk. In our article about harmful foods for our pets, we commented that although milk does not give problems to most of them, some can have some kind of intolerance and create problems during digestion. So, always be careful, and if your animal has intolerance, you can use a milk of vegetable origin, now in the market there are many classes.
3 cups oats
1- In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the pumpkin puree, peanut butter and milk on medium-high until well combined, about 2-3 minutes. Add 2 1/2 cups oats at low speed, beat for 1 more minute.
2- Using a small scoop, roll the mixture into 1.2 cm balls, forming about 20. Then, roll the balls in the remaining 1/2 cup oats.
3- Cover and place in the refrigerator until firm, about 1 hour.
And enjoy! As a reminder, these treats are very natural, so it is better to be consumed as soon as possible. They last longer if they are kept in the fridge.
