We did a trial run and our office dog approved.
Now you can have your pie and (your pup) can eat it too!
Recipe for Mini Pup-kin Pies:
- 3 tbsp organic, creamy (unsalted) peanut butter
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 egg
- 1 cup pumpkin puree (plain pumpkin only, no pumpkin pie filling)
We piped on dollops of dog-friendly “whipped cream,” created by mixing plain Greek yogurt with organic, creamy (unsalted) peanut butter.
1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
2. Combine peanut butter, flour, water and egg in a bowl. Mix well.
3. Divide mixture (crust) evenly to cover bottom of your mini muffin cups. (We used silicone, paw-shaped pans.) Be sure to create a crust edge for your mini pies by going up the edge of the mold.
4. Take pumpkin puree and spoon equal sized dollops onto each crust.
5. Bake 18-20 minutes or until the puree begins to turn a golden brown.
6. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Decorate with our dog-friendly “whipped cream.”
Bonus Tip. For pups allergic to grain, substitute the recipe below for the crust and still use the pumpkin puree as your filling.
- 1 1/2 cup almond meal
- 1/2 coconut flour
- 1 cup sweet potato (cooked/mashed, about 1 large)
- 1/4 cup water (can add additional if need be)
Mix the above ingredients together, and use as your crust / top with pumpkin puree as stated in original recipe and decorate.
Disclaimer: We recommend consulting with a veterinarian before serving your pup human food.
