Pumpkin Dog Treats Recipe

Image
Making your own dog treats is a great way to save money while keeping your pets healthy. This is the time of year when you can get a good deal on canned pumpkin. I like to make these small to use as training treats. My dogs love them! Ingredients: 15 oz can of pure pumpkin (no added spices) 3/4 cup cream of wheat - uncooked 1/2 cup dry powdered milk Directions:  Preheat oven to 300 F.  Mix all ingredients together.  Drop small spoonfuls (about 1/2 tsp) onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 300 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Baker's Notes: Store in the refrigerator for best freshness. You can try using cream of rice or ground oatmeal instead of cream of wheat. Pumpkin is a great source of beta carotene and vitamins C and E. These vitamins help to lower cancer risk, cataracts and heart disease. Cost : 3/4 cup cream of wheat - approx. $.85           15 oz pumpkin - 1.99           1/2 cup dry milk - .29
