We were delighted to make this Pumpkin & Single Source Cookie recipe to share with you (as was Maggie Mae)! Just as our skin reacts with the changing temperature so does our furry friends. I’m very lucky to have an extremely healthy dog but she does tend to suffer from some patches of dry skin during the colder months. Last year I started occasionally adding SBT Single Source Oil & Coconut Oil to her food and it helped instantly. I also noticed that her coat was much stronger and shinier and she had a little extra ‘pep in her step.’
I will admit my dog is extremely spoiled and gets a cookie every time I leave the house – so I thought if I’m going to be giving her cookies all the time I should firstly make them healthy and secondly make them beneficial. So here we are with these delicious nourishing Pumpkin & Single Source Dog Cookie recipe. (see below)
Pumpkin & Single Source Dog Cookie Recipe
for a happy dog & a healthy coat
- 1 can organic pumpkin (we used Farmers Market – 398 ml or just shy of 2 cups)
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon SBT Seabuckthorn Single Source Oil
- 1/3 cup whole oats
- 5 cups flour (of your choosing based on your dogs nutritional needs/sensitivities)
- Preheat oven to 350°F
- Combine all wet ingredients (pumpkin, eggs, coconut oil, & Seabuckthorn Single Source Oil) in a large bowl and mix until smooth
- Mix in oatmeal
- Begin to add flour 1 cup at a time. I used my mixer for the first 2 cups and switched to my hands after that to avoid making a mess – however if you have a stand mixer you could easily mix it all in there. I used 3.5 cups of flour for this recipe, but you really want to go off the feel of the dough. Everything should be mixed completely and shouldn’t be ‘sticky’ you want it to be the same consistency as cookie dough or maybe a little bit dryer even.
- Gather dough into a ball and roll out on a floured surface until about ¼ inch thick. If you roll it out too thin your cookies could get dry and brittle.
- Use your cookie cutter to cut out as many bones as you can. Place on a non-stick baking sheet or one that has been lined with parchment.
- Continue to roll your dough steps 4 & 5 until all dough has been used.
- Bake in the oven for approximately 45 minutes. This will depend on the shape of the cookies & how thick you rolled out your dough. You want the cookies to be 100% hard for safe consumption & storage. Be careful not to burn them – it only takes about an extra 15 to do that (I would know!).
- Let cool before giving them to your pup for a healthy & delicious treat.
- Store them in a cool dry place and give to your dog as desired.
This recipe makes about 50-60 cookies – they will store for a little while but you could cut the recipe in half if you wanted.
We hope your dogs love these cookies as much as our ‘taste tester’ Maggie Mae did.
