Pumpkin & Peanut Butter Dog Treats – Just 3 Ingredients!


– Hi friends (chuckles). Oh my goodness, such a nice hug Chickpea. You look headless now. But I do like that you’re
giving me hugs, it’s so nice. Hi friends, it’s Sam and
this is Chickpea dog. She is the cutest mutt
there ever was, aren’t you? Yes, yes you are. And today I’m gonna make my pumpkin and peanut butter dog treats. It’s just three ingredients,
really easy to make, very cheap and Chickpea
loves them, don’t you? Are you excited for dog treats? Yeah, okay, let’s get making peanut butter and pumpkin dog treats. Good girl. To make these pumpkin and
peanut butter dog treats you only need three ingredients, pumpkin, peanut butter and oats. You can use any kind
of oat, an instant oat, a one-minute oat, a rolled
oat, doesn’t matter, whatever you’ve got on hand is perfect. So one cup of oats into my food processor. Now I’m gonna grind up these
oats to make an oat flour. (food processor whirs) And there we go, homemade oat flour. It’s that easy, it’s just ground up oats. If you don’t have a
food processor and want to make this recipe you can
definitely buy oat flour which is already ground
up oats and then just mix all of these things together in a bowl. So whatever works for you. Now to the oats I’m
gonna add pumpkin puree. This is just some pumpkin
I had leftover from making another recipe so this is a great way to use up some leftover pumpkin. When you’re buying this you
can buy the canned version. Just make sure it’s pumpkin
puree and not pumpkin pie filling which has a
bunch of sugar and sweetness and all sorts of whatever in there. You want to just use pumpkin. So 1/3 of a cup of pumpkin puree. Whoo, get. And 1/4 cup of natural peanut butter. Again you want to make sure it’s natural and not the kind that’s
full of sugar and oils and stuff that’s not good for your pooch. You want your pooch to be healthy so keep the ingredients simple. Right in the food processor
with everything else. And now just blend it
together to form a dough. (food processor whirs) There we go, how easy is that? (laughs) Okay so here is my dough. This is ready to roll out
and make into dog treats. To roll out the treats you want to lightly flour a clean work surface. You can use any kind
of flour you like here. If you want to grind up
more oats in the beginning, set aside a handful, then
you can use that to roll out or you can just use whatever
flower you have on hand. I’m just using a whole wheat flour today ’cause that’s what I have on hand. So dump your dough out
onto your floured surface, gather it up and now we can roll it out. Roll out the dough. Gonna flour the surface,
it’s a bit sticky, so I can roll it a bit thinner. There we go. That is a very soft dough
so it’s very easy to roll. And roll the dough until
it’s about 1/4 inch thick and then cut out your treats. I’ve used this little dog
bone-shaped cookie cutter to cut out the treats and they look very cute and precious and great for a gift. But I’m only gonna give
these treats to Chickpea and honestly I don’t
think she cares what kind of shape they are. So I’m gonna take the easy
route and use a pizza cutter just to cut it into squares. I’m just being very gentle so that I don’t scratch my counter but this is definitely
the easy way to do it. Or you know what, if you
don’t even want to roll out this stuff you could
just pick little pieces of dough and just form them, flatten them into a random treat shape
and that would work as well. So whatever you want to
do, and the easiest way you want to do it, I don’t think dogs care about what the treats look like. They just care about what they taste like. Need to get rid of the ugly ends at least. I’ll put in that much effort for Chickpea. Does that count? So spread the treats out
on your parchment paper lined baking sheet just so
that they’re not touching. Now I’m just gonna gather
up the leftover dough and reroll it and make
more squares out of there. I like making these treats fairly little for Chickpea dog ’cause
she is a little dog and then that way I can
give her lots of treats. But if you have a bigger dog you can definitely make them bigger. They might just take a bit longer to cook. Okay, my treats are
ready to pop in the oven. I’m gonna bake them for
about 25 to 30 minutes until they are nice and dried out and then we’ll give them to Chickpea. As always I’ll put the
link to the full recipe down below in the description
and one up here, as well. The treats are out of the
oven and they have cooled. And now they’re like
dry and hard and crispy so it’s time to give them to Chickpea dog and see if she likes them. Chickpea, hi buddy, come here. (groans) There we go. Can I give you a treat? Want a treat? Sit, ah that’s lying
down but close enough. Here you go buddy. (dog crunching) What do you think, is that a good treat? (dog crunching) (laughs) What’s your review? Delicious? Yeah? High five. Nice work. Good dog. So there we go, Chickpea
dog loves the treats. I’m not surprised, I’ve
made them for her before. And you know what, she’s
actually a pretty picky food dog. She doesn’t love all treats
so it’s win-win for me. These are very easy to
make, they’re much cheaper than store bought treats
and she loves eating them. So she’s just a lucky little dog. I hope you like this video. If you do let me know by leaving a like. And don’t forget to

time where it’s kind of not gross to be cooking and
have dog hair on my shirt. What are you gonna do (chuckles)?
