Fresh Pumpkin Squash + Oat Treats

We are in the fall mood around here and of course I want to share that with my kiddos! I decided to make homemade gluten free treats from fresh pumpkin, butternut squash and oats.

  Treats for Your Pet Dogs That They Will Surely Love!

We all know that pumpkin is good for our pups, especially their digestive systemBut did you know butternut squash is also good for them too? It's packed with potassium. Of course, no vegetable in large quantities is good for our dogs so that is important to keep in mind when feeding veggies to your dog.

Spoiler alert, my dogs LOVED these baked treats. I was nervous for some reason that they might not like them but they LOVED them, which made me so happy! I also made my first hyperlapse video to show the process. Check it out below!

Pumpkin Squash + Oat Treats

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of diced, cooked organic butternut squash
  • 1/2 cup of fresh baking or canned organic pumpkin (I used fresh pumpkin bc it cooks in the treats)
  • 1/2 cup of gluten free oats
  • 1 cup of gluten free flour
  • 2 organic, cage free eggs
  • Coconut oil cooking spray
  • Sprinkle of turmeric (optional)

You'll Also Need...

  • 1 baking sheet / tin foil
  • 1 mixing bowl
  • 1 spatula
  • 1 strainer
  • Food processor

Instructions:

1.   Add oats to the food processor and chop for a little

2.   Add flour in to the food processor with the oats and mix until blended thoroughly

3.   Add flour and oats to mixing bowl, set aside

4.   Put diced butternut squash in the food processor, set aside

5.   Carve into the top of the pumpkin and begin to scoop out the pumpkin from the inside

6.   Take a strainer and put your pumpkin with the seeds into the strainer and begin to separate the seeds from the pumpkin. I ran water over it to help break up the pieces.

7.   Take your separated pumpkin and put it in the food processor with the butternut squash. Blend until smooth.

8.   Add the pumpkin and butternut squash mixture into the mixing bowl with your flour and oats

9.   Add in two eggs

10. With a spatula, mix together until fully blended and the dough is similar to a cookie dough like texture

11.  Take out your baking sheet or piece of foil and spray with coconut oil spray

12.  If needed, sprinkle flour over the dough to help with rolling individual treat balls

13.  Roll about 1.5 tablespoon of the dough together and place on the baking sheet lightly pushing it down

16.  Bake for a half hour at 350 degrees or until the middle is not soft

17.  Sprinkle some turmeric on top for a fall flare! You know I love turmeric for my dogs! :)

18.  Watch them ENJOY! Keep in the refrigerator after use since these are made with fresh ingredients and no preservatives!

Rear Bench Seat Cover

I have purchased several seat covers from area pet stores and have returned them. I love the one I got from 4Knines because it was easy to install, it's shaped just like the bench seat in my car, its nice looking and it doesn't slide around. I have a large dog and a medium sized dog and the cover stays put! Thanks, 4Knines!

Seat cover

We have 2 big dogs and an hour and a half trip to the lake house. The lab sheds black hair everywhere on the tan leather, the Goldendoodle but he has long nails and left little holes in the seat of the car I had before. Got the new car and immediately ordered your cover, it came in quickly, was easy to install and saved the new car lots of damage. Love it! Recommend it highly!

Very well made

Recently purchased the waterproof bed liner. Very happy with the quality workmanship and that the material is soft and doesn‰Ûªt make noise when shifting positions.
