1/4 cup peanut butter
2 large eggs
2/3 cup pumpkin puree
2 1/2 – 3 cups whole wheat flour
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. When the oven heats up, line the baking pan with the silicone baking mat or baking paper-set aside. In a medium or large bowl, beat pumpkin puree, peanut butter, and two eggs. It is best to use a medium-high speed electric mixer until the mixture is thoroughly mixed. This will take about 1-2 minutes. Gradually, add 2 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour to the bowl. You should slow down the speed a bit until the batter is well mixed together. Continue to use an additional 1/4 cup of flour until the dough is no longer sticky.
When finished, lightly dust the surface where you can continue the process. Here, you will start to knead the dough about 3-4 times until the texture is right. Next, take a rolling pin. You need to roll the dough to a thickness of about 1/4 inch. Then take a cookie cutter, cut out the required amount of cookies you want, and then place them evenly on the baking tray you prepared earlier. You can buy or make a large number of cookie-cutter shapes, depending on your love for your beloved dog.
When finished, put the tray in the oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. However, please note that the baking time may vary depending on the size and thickness of the snacks you prepare. The shape of cookie cutters may also affect your baking time, which is why it is best to leave cookies outside while they are in the oven.
Once they are ready to be removed from the oven, set them aside to cool completely.
