Pumpkin (Flax Seed) Dog Biscuits

Simple, healthy. Pumpkin Flax Seed Dog Biscuit Recipe - Lolathepitty.com

‘Tis the season for pumpkin-everything and we just had to jump on board, again.

I’ve been telling myself I need to get my hiney back in gear and baking for the dogs on a regular basis, but to be honest I’ve been kind of lazy/busy as all get-out.

So I decided to make a batch of pumpkin dog treats.

The best part?

Four ingredients.

No rolling out dough – just mixing, scooping, and baking. These treats are made for those days where you don’t feel like cooking but want to whip something special up for your pup.

Doesn’t get much simpler than this, friends!

A couple months ago, I asked our friends on Facebook what type of dog treats they’d love to see and we received a ton of requests. Carob cupcakes, carrot treats, chicken wild rice, and so many other great ideas.

And then…life happened.

We had a few eventful weeks presented to us and before I knew it, I never shared this recipe with you. But I feel like I’m finally able to breath, regain focus and get back into a normal routine with life and this blog.

Lola and Rio literally sat in front of the oven the entire time these were baking. When I had to photograph them they were both on pins and needles waiting for me to give them one (I might have snuck them a little taste). If they could talk, I’d be willing to bet they’d tell you this is their favorite dog treat recipe yet.

I loved making them, too. As you know if you’ve read my previous DIY dog treat recipes – I love simple. And healthy. You will not see me feeding Lola and Rio a cheeseburger, ice cream cone, or french fries (I save that for myself). I’m not judging you if you do, but I just don’t think they need it and I want my babies to live a long, healthy life.

This recipe was inspired and adapted from Kol’s Notes.

The rice flour was just brown rice flour from Bob’s Red Mill (if there’s ever a specialty flour you need, I guarantee they make it and it’s at most grocery stores).

To save time, I actually used canned chicken in this recipe. I was able to find an organic, canned chicken without any preservatives so I gave it a go.

And if you’re like me ten years ago (prior to living in Minnesota) and are going, “Huh? Where the heck can I find wild rice…wait, what is wild rice?!” just substitute with brown rice or whatever rice you’d like.
