Pumpkin Dog Biscuits

Paleo Pumpkin Dog Biscuits

I wasn’t going for pretty treats today.  I was going for quick, tasty and pup approved.  Done!  These turned out better than others I’ve tried so here we go.

Hurry Mom!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp bacon drippings

Directions:

  1. Whisk eggs in a mixing bowl, stir in pumpkin and melted bacon fat.  Mix together 1/2 cup coconut flour, baking powder and salt.  Stir dry ingredients into egg mixture.  Start with 1/2 cup coconut flour and add more if needed for a consistency that is not too wet, not too dry.  You just need it to hold together for little biscuits.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cover large baking pan with parchment paper.  Drop biscuit dough onto pan using 1/2 teaspoon measurement and a second small spoon to push dough onto pan.  This is a much quicker method than I’ve used before (rolling the dough, cutting into small squares or shaping into little cookies).
  3. Bake for 18 minutes or until lightly brown.

Ready for the oven

I always test the puppy treats and I have to say this is my favorite recipe so far.  Nacho and Salsa approved!  I freeze the treats and keep a small amount in the fridge for their daily consumption.  Sometimes I use baked sweet potato instead of pumpkin.

Healthy treats for healthy doggies!

Nacho approved!

Are they done yet?
