Homemade Dog Treats

I decided to try my hand at making my own dog treats. Our pups get one each morning when I leave for work, and one here and there when real good. The "good for them" treats are quite costly, and the cheap ones are full of so many fillers...if I like to eat more clean, why shouldn't my pets. So off to pinterest I went and I found this recipe that seemed like a nice easy start.

2 1/2 cups brown rice flour
1/2 cup unsweetened pumpkin puree
1/4 cup natural creamy peanut butter
2 large eggs


I put this all into my kitchen aid with the dough hook...

I don't have any cookie cutters...I know, weird right?? So I just rolled into balls and put onto a cookie sheet, then criss crossed the top with a fork.... 

I baked at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, flipped and baked another 10 minutes.

They smelled very good while I was making them, and I like that I know each ingredient in them...oh and the best part the pups thought they were pretty tasty...their wagging tails asking for more said so. :)
