Low Calorie Pumpkin Dog Biscuits

These are great halloween dog treats for all dogs as they are low in fat and high in fibre. Pumpkin for dogs is a great food – filling but low calorie. And tasty too!

Pumpkin Treat

Most dogs like pumpkin so this is a tasty treat – Luigi and Nero loved it! It’s quite easy to make and smells delicious. Although you can make it all year round, it is fun to make it into a halloween snack so your dog can join in the holiday fun.

When I made this treat I used black treacle instead of molasses. If you don’t want to make the treat wheat free, then use 2 cups of plain/all-purpose flour instead of rice flour.

I made bat shaped biscuits because it was Halloween, but you could use any shape you like. Remember you may need to adjust the cooking time a little depending on how big a cutter you use – see how to make dog treats.

Happy Halloween!

Warning

Nutmeg can be toxic to dogs if eaten in large amounts. You may like to skip this ingredient altogether just to be on the safe side, particularly if you have a small dog.

    • Thanks Lauren – I will put a warning on the recipe, although as the article you quoted says, a dog would need to consume quite a lot of nutmeg before it became a problem.

  3. Thank you for this recipe! I have my dogs on a raw diet, but I also wanted to add a treat that wasn’t raw organ; my beagles love variety! I won’t give my dogs wheat or corn under any circumstances, so finding cooked treats has not worked out for us until now. I have a questions tho…can rice flour be made using a coffee grinder?

    Thanks,
