Two ingredient, Wheat Free Dog Treats

wheat free, only two ingredient dog treats. dog bone shaped.

While I do enjoy getting creative with recipes and decorating dog treats now and then, the majority of the treats I make for our dogs are basic, healthy dog treats.   With only two ingredients, these treats couldn’t be easier.  This is recipe adapted from one I came across at The Midnight Baker.

2ingredient ingredients






I think these make great holiday dog treats.  As you might guess from the photo above , I made these around Thanksgiving time.   This time I used pumpkin and rolled oats.  The pumpkin could easily be replaced with other pureed fruits or vegetables – such as  carrot, sweet potato, butternut squash, blue berries,  apples, bananas….you get the picture.

2ingredient dough






I mixed the rolled oats and pumpkin together and then let is sit for 5 to 10 minutes.  The oats will absorb some of the moisture as they sit.   If you find the dough is too stiff – then add a little water.  If it is too sticky, simply add more oats.

2ingredient rolled dough






Roll dough out to about 1/4 inch thick and cut into desired shapes.  I usually use my favorite cookie cutter shapes on the first roll.

2ingredient squares








Then I gather up the remaining dough, roll again, and just cut into small, bite size squares with a pizza cutter.    I don’t know about your dogs, but  mine aren’t picky about what shape the treats are.  🙂

This batch easily fit on one 1/2 sheet baking pan.  If you’d like to make more treats you could always double the batch.

Let me know if you give these treats a try.   Happy Baking!
