‘Tis the season for baking cinnamon-y goodness, and we at BarkPost decided to get in on the fun by baking up some treats for our resident Halloweenie with the best Dracula face, #AndiTheIntern!
Now, for those of you who don’t like to bake because it involves too much science, (and you’re still scarred after that minor incident in HS chemistry lab years ago…oops!) don’t fret. We’ve tested a recipe that’s supaw simple and forgiving. So even if you mess it up, your pup will still appreciate the ruv. Also, it will make your house smell delicious, so you still win.
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup fresh or canned pumpkin (not seasoned pie filling)
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup water as needed
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Whisk together flour, baking powder, pumpkin, peanut butter and cinnamon in a bowl.
3. Add water as needed, but the dough should be stiff and dry.
4. Roll to 1/2 inch thick and cut with holiday cookie cutters.
5. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until hard.
Let the treats cool completely, then watch as your pup gobbles them down! We won’t judge you if you’re tempted to try them, too. Go ahead and share one with your best furiend!
These will be great to have on hand for any furry trick-o-treaters who come knocking this year! You can package them up in cute jars for a fun holiday gift, too. Just swap out the Halloween cutters for Christmas ones, and they’d make a pawfect stocking stuffer for the ones you love most.
Special Note: These treats should not replace your pet’s regular meals. Please check with your veterinarian if your pet has special dietary needs or food allergies.
