Pumpkin-Blueberry Dog Scones

finish 1

I’ve been baking a lot lately with pumpkin and decided it would be nice to bake some homemade dog treats for my little picky-eater. I searched the internet but most of the recipes had added sugar in them, which I didn’t think was necessary for dog treats.  So here’s a wonderful and healthy snack to make your favorite pooch. Pumpkin is easy for dogs to digest and the blueberries and cinnamon add a nice sweetness without adding sugar. These would make a fantastic gift (accompanied by my Banana Bacon Dog Bones) for the holiday season.

To start: Preheat the oven to 400°F and grab a large sheet pan and line it with a Silpat or parchment paper, set aside. In a large bowl mix together the wet ingredients then mix in the dry ingredients. Form little balls and press a pattern onto the tops of the scones. I used a cookie scoop and then made 2 cookies out of each scoop, about 1/2tbl each. (makes about 45 cookies) To make the pattern on top I used a drink muddler. If you can’t find anything to make a pattern just press them a little to flatten prior to baking.

Bake 20-25 minutes until they are crispy on the outside and leathery/chewy on the inside. Once they are done, turn the oven off and leave them in there to cool and finish crisping up. This should take about 2 hours.

Store in an airtight container, in a cool dry place. Treat your pup(s) within 2 weeks.

Ingredients

1¼cups whole wheat flour
1/4cup blueberries smashed, fresh or frozen (thawed)
1/2cup canned pumpkin puree
1/4cup water
2/3cup wheat germ
1/4tsp cinnamon
