The pups have voted: These homemade peanut butter pumpkin dog treats are worthy of the MB blog! They’re crispy, peanutty, wholesome, easy to make, and our pups were begging for more. Even our friend’s pickier dog went crazy for them!

Bonus? They’re human-approved for ease and affordability — just 3 simple ingredients and 1 bowl required. Let’s make dog treats!

Pumpkin, peanut butter, oats, and a small dog bone cookie cutter

All you need for these wholesome dog treats is:

  • Peanut butter – a favorite ingredient among dogs that boasts plenty of healthy fat and protein
  • Pumpkin purée (store-bought or homemade) – soothing for pups’ digestion and adds plenty of fiber and micronutrients
  • Oat flouroats add even more fiber, vitamins, and minerals and help the treats crisp up in the oven!

Stirring oat flour into a pumpkin peanut butter mixture

Simply combine your wet ingredients, add oat flour, and mix. Then roll out, stamp with your favorite cookie cutter (like this bone-shaped set!), and bake until golden brown and crispy.

Let cool completely before letting your pup enjoy!

  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (make sure it contains just one ingredient: peanuts)
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin purée (or sub homemade)
  • 3/4 cup oat flour (plus more for rolling)


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (176 C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • To a medium bowl add peanut butter and pumpkin purée. Mix well to thoroughly combine. Next, add oat flour and stir using a wooden spoon or spatula. You may need to knead with your hands as the mixture gets thicker. Form the dough into a rough disk. It should look and feel just like playdoh at this point.
  • Dust your work surface with oat flour and place your dough in the center of the flour. Dust the top of your disk with more oat flour. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out so it's 1/4-1/2 inch thick.
  • Use a 1-inch (or similar size) cookie cutter (we like these!) to cut out as many dog treats as you can. Place them on the baking sheet about 1 inch apart. They won’t spread, so you don't have to worry about placing them too close together. Re-roll the leftover dough and cut out any extra treats from the scraps that are left behind. As the recipe is written, you should have about 30 dog treats.
  • Bake on the center rack for 30-35 minutes until they are dry to the touch. Let cool on pan for 5 minutes before transferring onto a cooling rack and cooling completely before sharing with your furry friends!
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 1 month.

    I love this recipe as it has lots of peanut butter and my greyhound loves peanut butter. Super simple to make too. I doubled the batch and used a heart cut out so I have a lot of treats. My dog loves them!

    I must ask, in the video there are two black and white pups. Are they greyhound puppies? They are adorable :-)

      Aw, yay! We’re so glad your dog loves them, Sadie :) The pups at the end of the video are Italian greyhounds.

    I have an electric dog biscuit baker. I assume it will work but how long should I bake them for?

      Hi Shelly, we aren’t familiar with an electric dog biscuit baker. Perhaps another reader will be able to chime in?

  3. Susie says

    I have seen quite a few of recipes with pumpkin & peanut butter dog treats and some are adding eggs, cinnamon, and honey. Can these items be added to the recipe or would they be harmful to your dog?
    Thank you,

    • Avatar for Dana @ Minimalist BakerSupport @ Minimalist Baker says

      Hi Susie, Our understanding is eggs are fine and cinnamon and honey are okay in small quantities. We aren’t experts on dog health though, so it’s best to talk to a vet to be sure!

      • Susie says

        Hi, I went ahead and made your treats just with the three ingredients of your recipe and not use eggs, cinnamon, and honey. My Trixie just loved them & will keep on using this recipe.
        Thank you, Susie

    Made these for my boyfriends dog and he adores them. I made them with sweet potatoes once too. The only change I would make is the baking time. I found they can bake up really quickly, 15 to 20 min was all mine needed.

  5. Antoinette says

    I made these today! At first, my pup looked at me suspiciously and cautiously took one. After overcoming his distrust I got him to try one and he was very happy! I made them a bit bigger than in the recipe so they needed a bit longer cook time to get crunchy! Big hit!! Thanks for the recipe!

      Hi Sherry, we’re so sorry that was your experience! Did your peanut butter have any additives? Or is it possible your dog is allergic to one of the ingredients? We’ve made these for many dogs and never had any issues.

    • Ella says

      I am so sorry your dog had this issue. But as a vet tech I can tell you the author of this recipe bears no responsibility. Some dogs, like people, are allergic to certain food. Perhaps that was the issue. Or perhaps you accidentally bought peanut butter containing xylitol also known as birch sugar (which is toxic to dogs while safe for humans). These scenario’s are outside the author’s control. Perhaps you fed too many causing digestive issues. The list goes on…
      The three ingredients in these treats are totally safe, fine and benign for the vast majority of dogs. There will always be the one that has an odd allergic or have a toxic reaction (as in the case if you possibly did not check ingredients on your peanut butter and it contained xylitol). And of course there is always the chance that the treats had nothing to do with the dog’s issue at all, it was simply coincidence that he got sick at the same time you tried these treats. At any rate, I do hope your dog is now fine and you have calmed down.

    • Terri says

      Good lord. Dogs have eaten these three ingredients for eternity. You are making a BIG supposition here. You need to back down. (And probably apologize when you find out what ACTUALLY caused the problem).

  6. Judi Coteff says

    This was easy. I used my Vitamix to make the oat flour and peanut butter. I’m sending them for Christmas to my son for his dog . We’ll see if he likes them. Thanks for the recipe.

  7. Patricia says

    These are super easy to make and my dogs love them! With only three ingredients they come together quickly. I will be making these again and giving to my dog-parent friends for the holidays.

  8. Terry says

    I made these using regular peanut butter, since I didn’t have any natural peanut butter. Because I altered the recipe, I used a bit less peanut butter. I made the dough in the food processor. The dough was very easy to work with, so I didn’t need to use much extra oat flour. I wanted them to be pretty dry, so I baked them at 325F for 40 min, and they were perfect. I used my tiniest cookie cutters, and I got 69 treats. I think these are going to be a big hit with the neighborhood pups. Thank you for the great recipe!

    • Avatar for Dana @ Minimalist BakerSupport @ Minimalist Baker says

      Hi Lori, we didn’t, but if you try it, we’d suggest choosing one without added sugar and definitely without xylitol. Hope that helps!

  9. Dana says

    Oh yum! My gorgeous (shock/horror: vegan!) greyhound loves porridge, peanut butter, and pumpkin purée so we’ll be all over these. Thanks!
