Toby and Maddux went crazy for these homemade gluten-free pumpkin heart dog treats. And, to be honest, I didn’t think they tasted that bad either.
The recipe originated from a gluten-free pumpkin doughnut hole recipe I created for people. Toby, was glued to the oven as the smell from them cooking was starting to spread through the house. It was then that I realized it would be super easy to modify the recipe and turn them into dog treats.
Gluten-Free Pumpkin Heart Dog Treats
what I used …
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 cup oat flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
3 tablespoons coconut oil
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup honey
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
What I did …
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl whisk together the buckwheat flour, oat flour and coconut flour.
In a medium bowl melt the coconut oil. Then, add to it the eggs, pumpkin and honey. Whisk together.
Using a wooden spoon, stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until combined.
Working in small batches, spoon the mixture into a resealable plastic bag. Cut a small snip in the bottom corner of the bag, and draw your hearts. (Or whatever design you want. In addition to hearts, I also drew circles and spelled out letters.)
