PEANUT BUTTER PUMPKIN DOG TREATS
All purpose flour has the least amount of nutrients for your dog but if you're in a pinch it can be used, it's still less harmful than what is contained in store bought dog treats. Types of flour you may use are whole wheat, pea, chickpea, coconut, lentil and tapioca. Please do not use corn or soy flour. My dog's favorite flavors are pumpkin, banana and peanut butter, I plan on experimenting with this recipe to make other flavors for her! With the small cookie cutter I used I got 85 treats out of this dough.
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 can pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 heaping tablespoons peanut butter
dash of salt for baking purposes
Mix all ingredients together until dough forms into a ball.
Flour a cutting board and roll dough out to 1/4"-1/2" thickness.
Cut into desired shapes or use cookie cutters. I used a small cutter set by pampered chef because they are small and cute, I don't like large treats.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes at 350* They should be dry, hard and slightly browned on the bottom.
