Fall is probably my favorite season – good food, crisp evenings, all the beautiful colors. This year, I decided to create a recipe that would let my four-legged family members enjoy some of the bounty of harvest season. What I ended up making is a miniature pumpkin pie, perfect for our furry friends.
Your pets will love this recipe. My little yorkie, Catherine, absolutely loves them. I need to cut them into quarters for her, but for Edward, who is a bit larger, a half piece is fine.
Please enjoy this lovely fall dog treat recipe.
Pumpkin Pie Yorkie Treats
1 1/2 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup coconut oil, melted
1/4 Cup water
1/2 can pumpkin
1/4 cup flax seed meal
3 ounces french goat cheese
1/4 cup almond milk
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan (preferably with coconut oil). Starting with the crust, mix the water and egg until blended. Add the melted coconut oil. add the flour, 1/2 cup at a time until mixed well.
Bake in 375 degree preheated oven for 30 minutes or until crust starts to turn brown. Allow to cool before serving. These can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for about a week. You can freeze some and take out as needed.
The nifty little container I am using for these treats is called “Pupperware” and they are totally awesome. I have a couple of these and they are bone shaped and stack together. You can get yours online for just $3.99. They come in clear with lid colors of clear, pink, red, and black. Click here to get some for yourself: Bone-shaped Pupperware to store your dog treats.
