  • 1 cup fresh pumpkin
  • 1 and ½ cups rice flour
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • ½ tablespoon freshly ground ginger
  • 1 egg

How to make Halloween pumpkin dog treats


1. Preheat oven to 175 C. Line a flat baking tray with baking paper.

2. Peel and dice pumpkin into cubes and bring to boil in saucepan of water. Drain pumpkin and allow to cool. Puree in blender or food processor (or if you want to be old school, mash your pumpkin to a fine puree). Chill in refrigerator.

3. Combine flour, cinnamon and ginger in bowl and mix well.

4. Combine egg, honey and vegetable oil in large bowl and whisk until well combined.

5. Add the chilled pumpkin puree to the wet ingredients and whisk until well combined.

6. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet, whisking well until all ingredients are combined.

7. With teaspoons, spoon the batter onto the lined tray spacing about one inch apart to make mini cake patties.

8. Bake for 15 minutes. To test, insert a toothpick into the cake. If it comes out clean, the cake is ready and can be removed from the oven.

Allow cakes to cool and serve. Makes approximately 30 Halloween dog treats.

Best consumed fresh, so freeze any leftovers not consumed within 72 hours.

      I bet it could! Maybe using Applesauce or Banana/Molasses? I would love to see what you come up with! Make sure you share some pics (with Mamma snacking away on them of course!) 🙂
