 In two days, I can *officially* start celebrating Halloween by getting out all my Nightmare Before Christmas figures, singing “What’s This” at every given opportunity and pumpkin-ing ALL THE THINGS. Including the dog treats…or maybe, especially the dog treats. To get in that Halloweenie kind of mood, I’m sharing our most popular Halloween treat recipe from last year!

This post is sponsored by Fruitables. They generously provided the pumpkin for this, and some other recipes we will be sharing this month.

Every fall, the same thing happens: I fight Fall as long as I can and when I can’t fight it anymore, I jump in with two feet and vow to

This applies to all the human stuff I make and the dog stuff too. Pumpkin is one of our favourite ingredients here at Casa de Kolchak. It’s a great low calorie source of fibre, which means it can help your dog feel full without packing on a ton of calories. When I use it in treats, I don’t mind using a bit of peanut butter or carob to punch up the flavour. Peanuts are a little high in calories, pumpkin is a little low, it all balances out! It’s also our go – to item when one of the dogs has a bit of an upset tummy, since it can help “smooth things out”.

Last week, I told you how I loved sharing a nice Pumpkin Spice Latte with my dogs. This week, with a little help from Fruitables, I’m making a grain free pumpkin dog treat recipe that you can leave soft or bake until it’s crispy, crunchy and totally perfect.


Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Spice Dog Treat Recipe

featuring Fruitables Pumpkin Digestive Supplement



1 cup. Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Mix
1/2 tsp. Guar Gum
– If your dog is grain tolerant, you could absolutely sub. 1 cup of white flour and omit the guar gum
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1 egg
2/3 c. Fruitables Pumpkin & Ginger Digestive Supplement
1/3 c. natural, sugar free peanut butter
1/3 c. melted coconut oil
1/4 c. water
extra coconut oil + GF Flour to prep the pans

 How We Do It:

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a medium bowl, mix together GF flour, guar gum, baking soda and spices.

In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, pumpkin, peanut butter, coconut oil and water.

Add the we ingredients to the dry and stir until combined.

Grease a muffin tin with coconut oil and dust with flour. I used my new Hugs Pet Products Silicone Pan. <- Affiliate Link

Fill each tin half full. (Kol’s Note: If you’re using a silicone bone pan like mine, I find it WAY easier to put the batter into a piping bag and fill the tray that way.)

Place into the oven and bake for 17 – 20 minutes until baked through. If you want a crunchy treat, turn the oven down to 150F and leave in the oven for 2 – 3 hours.

dipped peanut butter pumpkin carob bones

If you’re totally fancy, like me (HEY! Quit laughing. I could be fancy…if I wanted to.) *IF* you’re fancy like me, you could make a batch of the peanut butter & carob dog treat filling recipe found here and dip the top of each biscuit in carob coating. Koly will love you forever since carob is his favourite.

What about you? Is it Fall at your house? Are you ready to pumpkin all the things?!

I'm so excited, because I now have frozen cube things shaped like dog bones and paws. Now I want cookie ones. Eventually, I'll actually make something. I'm still obsessed with my food dehydrator.

Yum! We all love pumpkin here at our house! We have those hugs pans too. They are the absolute best with that metal frame around the sides. We have the bones and the paw prints.
