Recipe: Dog Treats, Puppy Pumpkin Pies

Hello again! It's been almost two weeks since I last posted... between orders in my shop and extra hours at work, I just haven't had the time! I'm back today with a recipe for the canines in your life. This dog treat recipe is perfect for this time of year -- puppy pumpkin pies! These are yummy and healthy for your dog, as pumpkin helps to regulate digestion. Read on below for how easy these are to make...


  • 3/4 cup oat flour
  • 3/4 cup brown rice flour (IMPORTANT: Do not substitute wheat flour for either of these. Dogs are often very sensitive or even allergic to the gluten in wheat.)
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • Nonstick muffin tin
  • Fork 
By the time I get these ingredients out, my dogs are usually already waiting patiently on the kitchen floor :)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, stir all ingredients together until thoroughly combined. You should have a dough that is light, fluffy, and sticky.
  3. Divide dough between 9-12 muffin cups. Press dough into each muffin cup with your fingers.
  4. With a fork, make cross hatch marks on each mini pie. (This is just to look like the cross hatching on a pie -- if you want to skip this step you can!)
  5. Bake your mini pies for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown on the edges. They will not rise at all while baking. 
  6. Remove pies from muffin tin and let cool on a wire rack.

These are soft treats, so they can easily be broken into small pieces to give to your dog. I usually break them into four smaller pieces for my pups, since I don't want to over-treat them! :)

Hope you and your dogs enjoy this recipe!
