DIY pumpkin and green pea dog treats

     Well, here we are in my favorite time of year...fall!  I love the cooler weather, the crispness in the air, the excitement that it's almost time to wear jeans and boots, and the prospects of pumpkins in all shapes, sizes and tastes!  I always say that the tastes of pumpkin, ginger, cinnamon and apples equals the tastes of fall.
     I have been experimenting with some new gluten free pumpkin baked goodies for me, so I thought it was time to make a new treat for my four-legged baby, Marley.  She loves the other treats that I have made for her is one of her favorites, as this one featuring blueberries 
     Now we've traded in the blueberries for pumpkin, and I threw in some green peas too.
Marley's Pumpkin Treats

  • 1/2 cup plain canned pumpkin (not pie filling it has sugar)
  • 2 Tbl bacon grease
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup cooked green peas (I used frozen, and don't add anything to them)
  • about 1-2 Tbl brown rice flour (I added some without measuring just to get to the consistency that resembled a cookie dough)
  • drop on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, and bake in 350* oven for about 10 minutes


Just like the other dog treats I make, I keep them in the freezer, and pull a couple to reach room temperature on the day that I will give them to her.  These aren't crunchy like the peanut butter bacon ones I mentioned above, so I thought they may be less desirable, not so!  Marley loves them.  Do you make treats for your dogs, I'd love to hear about it!
