Ingredients

15 oz
can pumpkin
1⁄2 c
peanut butter
2  
Eggs
1⁄4 c
oil
2 1⁄2 c
whole wheat flour
1 t
baking soda
2 T
bacon grease (coconut oil, chicken fat or any other fat that will solidify at room temperature)
1⁄4 c
smooth peanut butter

Instructions

Glaze:

2 Tbsp. bacon grease, coconut oil, chicken fat or any other fat that will solidify at room temperature, melted.

¼ cup smooth peanut butter

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine pumpkin, peanut butter, eggs and oil in a bowl. Add in baking soda and whole wheat flour. Stir until stiff dough forms. Knead dough or mix just until flour is incorporated.

 

Roll out dough with a rolling pin and use a cookie cutter to cut out dog bone shapes, or just bake into little circles like cookies. Place on baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.

 

Whisk bacon grease and peanut butter until very smooth. Drizzle over the treats and cool till glaze hardens (it does best in the fridge or freezer).

 

Notes

Lisa’s Notes: This recipe is courtesy of pinchofyum.com. *A trace amount of bacon grease (2 Tbsp. divided among 30 biscuits = less than 1 gram of bacon fat per serving) shouldn’t be a concern. Of course, we’re not veterinarians, so please check with your vet or use alternative type of oil if you are concerned.
