What I love about dog treat recipes is that you can add two totally different kinds of ingredients, yet have them coming out really tasty – well, for dogs that is. In the Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treat Recipe, a flavorful combination turns out to be a new favorite. A doggy favorite – peanut butter – is mixed with a digestible favorite – pureed pumpkin – to give us this beggable treat. Add in a touch of cinnamon (it’s an anti-inflammatory, among other things) and honey, and this sweet cookie will have your pups wagging for more.
