PUMPKIN WAFERS DOG TREAT RECIPE
One 15 oz. can mashed pure pumpkin (NOT the spiced pie filling)
3/4 cup cream of wheat (or rice cereal if wheat-sensitive) You can mix this dry--no need to cook it first
1/2 cup dry powdered milk
Directions: Preheat oven to 300 F.
Mix all ingredients together. Drop small spoonfuls (I use about half of a tablespoon) onto a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake at 300 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
If you'd like to make bite sized cookies for small dogs, training rewards or just small treats, you can use a pastry bag and squeeze out rosettes about the size of a dime for tasty bite sized cookies!
Depending on the size, this recipe will make around 20 treats.
Reader Honey Bee wrote me a few weeks go to let me she wanted to make a double batch. Here's what she said:
"I followed the Pumpkin Wafers Dog Treat Recipe Yum...I doubled everything except the Cream of Wheat...I added 3/4 cup of oatmeal...this was an amazingly easy recipe, my boys loved it...I used the pastry bag, so that we had treats for our little friends and for training treat size too..." Thanks Honey Bee!
Just to recap, she doubled the recipe but she did NOT double the Cream of Wheat, she added 3/4 cup of oatmeal instead.
Pumpkin is Great for Dogs & Humans!
This pumpkin dog treat is loaded with Beta carotene and anti-oxidants especially vitamins C and E. These vitamins help to lower cancer risk, cataracts and heart disease.

"Hey Jennifer,The Pumpkin Dog Treat Cookie recipe is GREAT!
I made them yesterday for Hope b/c she has to lose some weight. She was 72 lbs. when we got her and she needs to go down to 46 in order to continue in her agility class.
One of the tips offered by her teacher was to cut down on her food and add pumpkin to her meals (filler and healthy for her). I was so excited to find your recipe. I even replaced the reg. hot cereal with a Hot Cereal made of Flax, Soy, and Wheat. Extra healthy!
Hope thanks you for giving her snacks back into her life."
