Oatmeal Pumpkin (wheat-free) Dog Treats

Dog treats are sooo expensive! I want my dogs to have healthy treats and most of all treats that are safe! I used to spend so much time looking at packaging not only looking at the ingredients but where the treats were made as well.
You may have already seen my post on the health benefits of pumpkin for dogs. Well, here is a healthy treat that is very easy to make and is also inexpensive. Made with healthy oatmeal, pumpkin, and rice flour. I found this recipe at doggydessertchef.com.
First assemble your ingredients.
Mix everything together.

Spread on a lined cookie sheet about 1/4" thick

Bake, cool,. and cut into bars.

Let your doggies enjoy!

Mine LOVED these! ♥
Oatmeal Pumpkin Dog Treats
2 cups Oatmeal
1 cup White Rice Flour
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Eggs
1 tablespoon Honey
1/4 cup Molasses
1 (15 ounce can) Pumpkin
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. (I didn't have either so I used a cookie sheet and greased it well with butter.)
2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until well combined.
3.  Spread dough onto prepared baking sheet 1/4 inch thick.
4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until slightly brown at the edges.
5. Allow to cool. Cut the dough horizontally and then vertically to make a grid (You can use a pizza cutter).
6. Break into pieces, then refrigerate.


  1. Awesome stuff, thank you and keep coming with these, will be back again.

  2. These must stay refrigerated? Do you ever leave them out/room temp? Just curious. THANKS!

    1. You could take out a few and let come to room temp before giving to your pet but yes, I would keep refrigerated for safety. My dogs love these.

  3. I leave them out and after they have completely cooled I put them in the puppy cookie jar. My 3 furbabies LOVE them so much they don't last long enough to go bad! lol

    1. We go through them pretty quickly here too. Glad your furbabies are enjoying them!

  4. Um, yeah, I'm just gonna make these for myself. If there are any left, I will send some to my friend's dog in Iowa. ;)

    1. Better just make a double batch WindWalker, my dogs love these! Thanks for commenting.

  5. I have an old pup. Are these soft treats or crunchy? Thanks

    1. Sort of in-between Kim. My senior dogs don't have any problems eating them but you could cook them just a few minutes less to be sure. Thanks and I hope your pup loves them.
