Ingredients for the dog cookie recipe:

For the Frosting:

  • ¼ cup of cornstarch or tapioca starch
  • ¼ cup of water
  • 2 tsp of honey
  • Food coloring (optional)
  • Sprinkles (optional, but remember to choose xylitol-free ones to avoid any harm to your furry friend. Check out our article on xylitol poisoning in dogs for more information.)

For the cookie:

  • 1 cup of plain pumpkin puree (without sugar)
  • 2 tbsp of plain peanut butter (without sugar or salt)
  • 2 ½ cups of whole wheat flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup of unsweetened applesauce or substitute with veggie, olive, or melted coconut oil

Instructions to make the dog cookie recipe:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch, water, and honey. Gradually add water until the mixture reaches a consistency that will stick to the cookie (slightly runny). If desired, add food coloring for an extra festive touch.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, blend together the pumpkin puree, peanut butter, whole wheat flour, eggs, and unsweetened applesauce or oil until thoroughly combined.
  4. Gradually add flour to the dough, a little at a time, until it becomes manageable without sticking to your fingers.
  5. On a well-floured surface, roll out the dough to approximately ½ inch thickness. You can either cut out the dough into desired shapes or use cookie cutters.
  6. Place the cookies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  7. Bake for about 8 minutes or until the edges of the cookies turn lightly golden brown.
  8. Once baked, allow the cookies to cool completely before applying frosting.
  9. To frost the cookies, gently dip the top of each one into the cornstarch slurry, immediately adding sprinkles if desired. Let the frosting dry before serving.
  10. Finally, it's time to treat your furry companion to these delicious homemade dog cookies! Share the joy with your beloved pup.
