Peanut Butter Pumpkin Spice Dog Treats

This DIY recipe is brought to you by SmartPak.

Today is National Dog Biscuit Day. That’s right. That’s a thing. Apparently, on February 23 your dog doesn’t want a pat, to be scratched behind his ear, or to run after a stick. What he really wants is his biscuit because it’s National Dog Biscuit Day, also known as Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day. Therefore, we’re offering up this recipe for peanut butter pumpkin spice dog treats from SmartPaker Erika Druker. Your pup will love them!

Supplies You Will Need:

  • Stand Mixer (or mixing bowl and hand mixer)
  • Baking Sheet
  • Parchment Paper
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Measuring Cups
  • Rolling Pin
  • Cookie Cutters
  • Cooling Rack (optional)

Ingredients You Will Need:

  • 1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • ¼ cup Pumpkin Puree
  • ½ cup Peanut Butter (make sure it does not contain Xylitol)
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ cup Water


  1. Preheat your over to 350 degrees.
  2. While your oven is preheating measure out all of the ingredients in to your stand mixer (or mixing bowl) and combine together. Once combined the dough will be soft, pliable and slightly orange (hello pumpkin!).
  3. Take your dough out of the mixer and place it on a parchment paper sheet. Take another parchment paper sheet and sandwich the dough between the two– you’re now ready to roll out your dough without the mess! If you would rather roll your dough on your counter, you can take a small sprinkle of whole what flour and sprinkle it on your counter to avoid the dough sticking.
  4. Roll out your dough to about ¼” and locate your favorite cookie cutters. For mine I chose a bone shape and a small star. There are so many fun cookie cutters to choose from these days so get creative!
  5. Next line your baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper and place your treats on top. Pop the tray in to the oven for 20 – 25 minutes. If your dog appreciates a crunchy treat like mine, you may want to leave the treats in the oven more towards the 25 minute mark.
    **Note all ovens are different and sometimes bake differently, times may vary. Set a time and go play with your furry companions!
  6. Once the treats are done baking allow them to cool off. If you have a cooling rack you can transfer the treats to that at this point to allow them to cool. Once cool, place your treats in an airtight jar (or container) and try to keep your pups away!

Your pups are sure to enjoy these treats, just like Theodore and Baxter!
