Simple 3-ingredient dog treat recipe made with oats, pumpkin puree, and eggs! Pulse all ingredients in a food processor for easy cleanup. Your pup will love these! 


  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (old fashioned, not the quick-cooking kind)
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree, unsweetened
  • 2 large eggs* (see Notes for alternatives)


  • Optional: whole wheat or all-purpose flour, as needed for rolling


  1. Prep. Preheat oven to 350º F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Mix dough. Add oats to a clean and dry food processor. Process oats on high speed for approximately 2 minutes, until they resemble a coarse flour. Add pumpkin puree and eggs to the processor, and pulse until the mixture forms a stiff dough. 
  3. Shape treats. To make bone-shaped treats, flour a clean work surface, and roll out the dough until about 1/4-inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to press out the treats and place on the baking sheet. They won’t expand or rise much, so the treats can lay snug. For round treats, use a small cookie scoop to dollop dough balls onto the parchment. Press each ball down with a fork, creating cross-hatch marks. 
  4. Bake. Bake the treats for 20-30 minutes or until the treats have stiffened up in texture. These treats won’t pick up much browning color. Cool completely before storing and giving to your pup! 
  5. Storing. Since these treats are made with fresh ingredients, store them in the fridge for up to 5 days in an airtight container or freeze in a zip tight bag for up to a month. 


  • Eggs: if your dog is allergic to eggs, you can absolutely replace them in this recipe since the eggs don’t provide lift. 1 cup of mashed bananas or applesauce will work just fine.
  • Bonus Ingredients (to spoil your dog!)
    • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter (non-xylitol), reduce pumpkin puree by 1/4 cup
    • 3-4 bacon strips, chopped – no recipe alterations needed
    • 1/4 tsp cinnamon, for smells your dog can’t resist
