Halloween Pumpkin Dog Treats: Spooky, Easy, Natural, Homemade, DIY Dog Treat Recipe

halloween_pumpkin_dog_treats

  

Finding natural, wholesome dog treats that don't break the bank is challenging. 
So many treats at the store contain ingredients we've never heard of, which is worrying. 
We made these spooky, Halloween treats that are natural, and our pooches love them!
I've used ingredients most of us have around, and you can easily substitute for things you do have. The ingredients we have used all serve a purpose for our dogs' health.
Sweet Potato or Pumpkin - Pumpkin purée is the best for this recipe as it gives the most vibrant color. However, it can be difficult to find pure canned pumpkin, so we used sweet potato instead. Both are a good source of carbohydrates for dogs.
Peas - Peas contain fiber and a variety of vitamins and minerals. They also work decoratively as pumpkin storks.
Egg - This helps to bind the whole mixture together. It also adds extra protein to the biscuits. 
Coconut Oil - Coconut oil is great for keeping dogs' fur shiny and keeps their skin healthy.
You can alter the size and shape to your dog's preference. The smaller they are, the quicker they'll bake. If your dog loves a crunchier treat, keep them in an extra 5 minutes.
Let us know if you give these a try, and send a picture with your beautiful doggies!
