Yes its officially October! One of my very favorite months of the year. Halloween is my absolute favorite! And when Wayfair contacted me and asked me to be apart of the “Halloween Pet Animal Contest” I thought what a better way to kick of October then with some funny pictures of my childhood dog in Wayfair’s halloween costumes. One Sunday night after family dinner all 15 of us browsed through all their animal costumes! We were shocked with how many they had and how amazing the costumes really were. And after we all looked through the list and we had all the kids in on it too we decided on the pirate and snow white. She has already worn both costumes multiple times. Actually almost every single time we are at my parents house my kids want Sassy to put on the costumes!
And what better thing to go along with a dog costume post then a recipe for peanut butter pumpkin dog treats!
Peanut Butter Pumpkin
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup uncooked-quick oats
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/4 cups hot water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and place a sheet of wax paper on a cookie sheet. Grab the quick oats and put them in your food processor, blender, or my favorite the magic bullet. Ground the oats up finely. In a large bowl mix together all ingredients including the ground up oats. Once all ingredients are mixed together. Take a handful of the whole wheat flour and sprinkle it on countertop and a little on your rolling pin. Place dough on the flour and roll out about 1/4-1/2 inch thick. Grab cookie cutter and cut into the shapes that you would like. (I chose mini halloween shapes to go with the theme) Place on the cookie sheet and bake for 25 minutes. Let cool. And then give to your dog to enjoy!
