Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats (allrecipes.com)

Ingredients 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour 2 eggs 1/2 cup canned pumpkin 2 tbsp. peanut butter 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Directions 1. Preheat oven to 350ºF (175ºC) 2. Whisk together the flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. Add water as needed to help make the dough workable, but the dough should be dry and stiff. Roll the dough into a 1/2-inch thick roll. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces. 3. Bake in preheated oven until hard - about 40 minutes.

Sweet Potato Apple Dog Treats (wholefoodsmarket.com)

Ingredients 3/4 cup cooked plain mashed sweet potatoes 3 tbsp. chicken or beef broth (or water) 2 cups organic 100% whole wheat pastry flour, plus more for dusting 1/2 cup fine yellow cornmeal 1/4 cup finely chopped mint 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and grated

Directions Preheat oven to 325°F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together sweet potatoes and broth. Add flour, cornmeal, mint and apples and stir until combined. Knead the dough a few times until it holds together. Roll out half of the dough on a generously floured surface until about 1/4-inch thick. Use (2-inch to 4-inch) cookie cutters to cut out treats. Transfer to baking sheets; re-roll and cut the scraps. Bake until dried and just slightly golden on the bottoms, 35 to 40 minutes. Turn off the oven, leave oven door ajar and let the treats cool and dry out in the oven for 1 to 2 hours. Store in an airtight container up to 1 week. Of course, KeepDoggieSafe has you covered if you're not the cooking-for-your-dog type.
