I’m a Registered Dietitian and dog owner, so it’s only natural that I love to make healthy homemade dog treats for my poodle, Coby.

If you’ve navigated to this post, I assume you are equally as interested in nutrition for dogs and healthy lifestyle for dogs!

In the summertime, Coby loves my homemade dog popsicles and frozen watermelon dog treats, but these no bake peanut butter dog treats are perfect for fall and winter, or any time of year 🙂

They feature nutritious foods for dogs: canned pumpkin puree, creamy peanut butter, ground flaxseed, oats, and crushed up Old Mother Hubbard Winter Fun P-Nuttier Dog Biscuits.

These homemade dog treats require no baking or cooking at all. They take about 10 minutes of hands-on time to prepare, including some refrigeration time.

Your dog is sure to enjoy these no bake pumpkin dog treats!

Ingredients

Everything you need to make no bake dog treats:

  • Canned pumpkin puree: Plain pumpkin puree is a nutritious food to feed to your dog. It provides dietary fiber and is an excellent source of Vitamin A.
  • Creamy peanut butter: I’ve never met a dog who doesn’t love peanut butter! It’s a tasty food you can feed your dog with several nutrition benefits. Peanut butter provides plant-based protein, healthy fats, B vitamins, and copper. Do make sure that the peanut butter you use does not contain xylitol, an artificial sweetener that is toxic for dogs.
  • Old fashioned rolled oats: Oats are a healthy whole grain food that provide dietary fiber, iron, thiamin, and magnesium.
  • Ground flaxseed: Flaxseeds are rich in healthy omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and dietary fiber. They are also packed with antioxidants, which help keep your dog’s cells healthy and fight inflammation.
  • Old Mother Hubbard Winter Fun P-Nuttier Biscuits: These crunchy dog biscuits are made with whole food ingredients like real peanut butter, molasses, and apples. Crunch them up and add them to these no-bake dog treats for texture and flavor!
