Recipe Friday – Pumpkin Treats For Dogs

Have any leftover pumpkin?  Here is a great recipe for some yummy treats for your dog!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Fresh Pumpkin
  • 1 and ½ Cups Rice Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • ½ Tablespoon Freshly Ground Ginger
  • 1 Free Range Egg
  • 1 Cup Honey (if you are worried about using honey, you can use less or omit if need be)
  • 1 Cup Vegetable Oil

 

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a flat baking tray with baking paper.

2. Peel and dice pumpkin into cubes and bring to boil in saucepan of water. Drain pumpkin and allow to cool. Puree in blender or food processor (or if you want to be old school, mash your pumpkin to a fine puree). Chill in refrigerator.

3. Combine flour, cinnamon and ginger in bowl and mix well.

4. Combine egg, honey and vegetable oil in large bowl and whisk until well combined.

5. Add the chilled pumpkin puree to the wet ingredients and whisk until well combined.

6. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet, whisking well until all ingredients are combined.

7. With teaspoons, spoon the batter onto the lined tray spacing about one inch apart to make mini cake patties.

8. Bake for 15 minutes. To test, insert a toothpick into the cake. If it comes out clean, the cake is ready and can be removed from the oven. Allow cakes to cool and serve.

Makes approximately 30 pumpkin dog treats. Freeze any leftovers not consumed within several days.
