Perfect for snacking, training and doggy stocking stuffers, these gluten-free treats are chock-full of ingredients that are good for your pup (including pumpkin). Peanut butter adds tempting flavor that dogs can’t resist.
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
  • 2 cups brown rice flour, plus more for dusting
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground star anise or cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  

In a small bowl, combine flaxseed with 3 tablespoons water, stir the mixture and let sit for 5 minutes.  

Whisk together flour, baking powder, star anise and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add flaxseed mixture, pumpkin and peanut butter and mix well with a wooden spoon until dough comes together.  

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll out into a 12x4-inch rectangle about 3/4-inch thick. Cut into 1-inch strips and give each piece a little pinch in the middle to mimic the shape of dog bones or use a dog-bone-shaped cookie cutter. Place on the prepared baking sheet.  

Bake until treats are completely hard, about 1 hour. Let cool completely, then store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
