MINI PUMPKIN PIE PUPPY TREATS!! I am so excited to tell you about these healthy fall treats for our fur babies!! They only take FOUR ingredients to make, and Emmy Lou loves them!
First, the crust is only two ingredients: ground up dog treats and coconut oil. Emmy loves these peanut butter treats from Old Mother Hubbard, so that’s what we used! Just blitz them up in a food processor, then add in melted coconut oil to form a crumbly “graham cracker” crust.
I pressed the puppy-friendly pie crust into a mini tart pan, then filled each little tart with a spoonful of plain canned pumpkin. (NOT pumpkin pie filling!)
Pumpkin is so good for dogs. It has lots of vitamins and helps with their digestion!
By this point, Emmy was so excited that I was making a special treat for her that she worked herself into a frenzy and had both of her ears flipped back like the crazy girl that she is. (Notice the little spit bubble! Do I only think that’s cute because I’m her mom?)
Our final ingredient is plain Greek yogurt. I scooped it into a Ziploc bag and cut off one corner to pipe the “whipped cream” onto the mini pumpkin pies and garnished them with some leftover dog treat crumbs!
After that, all we have to do is throw them in the freezer for a little bit. They popped out of the mini tart pan easily for me with the help of a butter knife. You can then store them in a freezer safe container or Ziploc bag in your freezer for when your pup needs an extra special treat, such as Thanksgiving when everyone else is eating pumpkin pie. Now they can, too! (Bonus: these keep Emmy occupied for a little longer than normal treats since they’re frozen!)
Isn’t that the cutest little thing??
Emmy wholeheartedly approves!

These dog-friendly and healthy pumpkin pies are made with only four ingredients: a dog treat and coconut oil crust, pumpkin, and Greek yogurt "whipped cream"!
