Ingredients used for banana pumpkin dog treats
You can also use whole wheat flour in combination with different flour to make these treats, just mix it up a little.
Pumpkin for dogs - always use 100% pumpkin with no fillers when making dog treats.
Rolled Oats - we often use rolled oats in dog treat recipes. Do not use quick oats. You're fine recipes using rolled oats that have been ground down to a flower like consistency, or used whole.
Rolled Oats are a significant source of fiber that helps to regulate your dog’s which helps to regulate dietary issues. It’s also safe for dogs who have wheat allergies.
Applesauce - most dogs can eat applesauce with no issues. You’ll always want to look for apple sauce that is an organic brand and doesn’t contain any fillers or put extra added sugars into the applesauce.
You should never feed your dog applesauce that has been sweetened. Always look for unsweetened applesauce. The best place to buy applesauce is in the baby food section.
Applesauce contains dietary fiber and vitamin C, phosphorus and calcium, which is beneficial for dogs.
Eggs - eggs are a nutritious source of protein but not only contain essential amino acids and fatty acids, but they make excellent dog treats and dietary supplements for dogs.
Just like any human food, we usually make dog treat recipes with eggs.
How to make banana pumpkin dog treats
These treats are so easy to whip up!
Begin by putting your rolled oats into a blender or food processor, such as a Nutribullet, to turn your rolled oats into flour consistency.

Continue mixing until you have formed a ball of dough.
Please see your ball of dough onto a flat, floured surface.
Roll your door out to approximately 1/4 inch thick. The trick with rolling the dough is to place a sheet of parchment paper between your door and rolling pin. It will help the donut stick to your rolling pin.

Bake at 350° for 20 minutes.
