Today’s Dog Treat Cookie Recipe

PUMPKIN SPICE COOKIES
Did you know?
Pumpkin seeds are an effective deworming agent against tapeworms and other intestinal parasites in dogs and… humans. Pumpkin seeds contain the amino acid called cucurbitin, which paralyzes and eliminates the worms from the digestive tract.
Coconut improves the digestion of your dog and becomes medicine for most digestive upsets. It can give your dog a smooth glossy coat, as well as healthy, supple skin. Yeast and fungal infections are also treated and prevented through the use of coconut. Coconut oil can help kill worm eggs and rid your pet of ear mites.
Cinnamon is known to help invigorate and support your pets respiratory and digestive systems. Cinnamon has great anti-inflammatory properties, especially for senior dogs struggling with arthritis.
Ginger is an anti-coagulant, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and a carminative (means less flatulence). It helps in the absorption of food stuff, helping with digestion. It’s also helps boost healthy blood circulation. Ginger also helps in treating nausea such as motion sickness.
Pumpkin Spice
PUMPKIN SPICE COOKIES
2 cups Quick Cooking Oats
2 cups cooked Pumpkin – mashed
1/4 cup desiccated Coconut
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. Ginger
1 tbsp. Pumpkin seeds
Preheat oven to 180° C (350° F) and line a cookie tray with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, add the desiccated coconut, spices and seeds to the Oats and mix to combine.
Add in the mashed pumpkin and mix thoroughly.
Scoop out portions of cookie mixture with a small cookie scoop or a tablespoon and drop onto cookie tray.
Flatten cookies with the bottom of a small glass, your fingers or fork tines.
Bake for 15 minutes, remove tray from oven and flip cookies over.
Return tray to oven and bake for another 10 – 15 minutes (ovens vary).
Remove cookies from oven and place on wire cooling rack to cool completely.
Yield: 30 cookies (soft texture)

Storage, Refrigeration and Freezing instructions:
Store in zip lock bags or air tight containers in your refrigerator.
Allow to come to room temperature before feeding.
Home-baked dog treats contain no preservatives, so they can mold or spoil the same as home-baked people cookies/cakes do. Other variables, ingredients/moisture content of the treat and climate conditions will also determine the storage time.
Refrigeration will prolong the life of home-made dog treats.
Freeze for up to 6 months – Always allow treats to thaw completely before feeding.

Feed these PUMPKIN SPICE COOKIES only as a treat.
Treats should not make up more than 10% of your pet’s diet.
As with any treat, always provide fresh water after feeding.

Be sure to check the recipe for any known foods or ingredients your pet may be allergic to. If in doubt, check with your Vet.
