My pups Lestat & Hugo love these treats!

I love making treats for my boys—that way I know what they eat. They get one everyday after their mid-morning walk. The treats disappear within a fraction of a second!

Makes about 40

1 very ripe banana

½ can pumpkin purée

1 tablespoon honey

1½ cups whole wheat flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix banana, pumpkin, and honey. I find using my hands works best.
  3. Add flour and baking powder and work in into the mixture. If it’s too wet, add more flour. It should be a dry dough.
  4. Roll it out in a little flour and cut out shapes with a cookie cutter.
  5. Place on a baking tray covered with parchment paper and bake for 10–12 minutes. They should be lightly golden.
  6. Cool on a wire rack.
  7. Store in a jar with a closed lid.
