Simple Doggie Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pies!

Thanksgiving last year, my fur babies looked on longingly as I savored a delish pumpkin pie in front of them. Giving them the normal dog bones did nothing to cure that ‘please give me some’ look.

I realized, they also love pumpkin! Why can’t they enjoy a pie with me? Due to the large amounts of sugar and spices inside of a real pie, I realized they would definitely need a pie of reduced ingredients.

This recipe uses a few ingredients that you may already have on hand! Gather up some a cup of wheat flour, 4 tablespoons of peanut butter, 1 egg, 1/2 cup of water, pure, plain as h*ll pumpkin (No Pumpkin Pie Filling), and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, which is optional.


Start by preheating your oven to 350°.


Always make sure to read the ingredients on your jar of peanut butter! If you see an ingredient labeled xylitol, do not feed this peanut butter to your pet! Xylitol is a sweetener and is very poisonous to dogs.


Get a medium-sized mixing bowl, add in the flour, egg, peanut butter, cinnamon and water. Cinnamon can be saved for the pumpkin filling instead, if desired.


Mix very well until no egg nor flour is visible.

Lightly dust your hands with flour, as the batter will be sticky.


Lightly oil your mini pumpkin pie tins, mini muffin pans, or regular muffin pans (we used full-sized muffin pans, but if you would like them as quick treat bites, definitely use smaller pans).


Spread the batter in the tins or pans, all over the bottom and the edges. If you would like the crust like a pie, lightly oil a bit of the sides around the cups and press in more batter. Use a fork to lightly press patterns onto those extended edges.


If you have batter left, make something else with it! Remember the batter is sticky, so cookies may not be as easy to make.

Place pies in the oven for 20-22 mins or until the crust has begun to brown. It may take a bit more time depending how large your pies are. The ones pictured took 25 minutes.

 
After baking, make sure the pies cool off as the pumpkin will be scorching! When they cool, let your pups try it out! They’ll love it.


The pies can be saved in a Tupperware like any other pie, muffin or cake. I refrigerated mine so that they could last a bit longer. Send us pics of your dog enjoying their pie!


My attempts of taking a photo of my dogs eating resulted in very blurry photos! They ate the pies entirely too fast… actually, my pitbull slept beside his protectively and ate it a bit later.


Bring on the doggie pumpkin pie! This pie includes very few ingredients, making it easy to make.
