Simple Autumn Delights: Michelle’s 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Dog Treats for Bear

In the cozy heart of Nashville, where the fall colors paint the city in warm hues, Michelle Parker and her Chocolate Lab, Bear, enjoy the festive season to its fullest. An avid baker of homemade dog treats, Michelle has mastered the art of creating simple, nutritious snacks for Bear. With the onset of autumn, she’s excited to share her latest creation: 3 ingredient pumpkin dog treats. These treats not only reflect the seasonal spirit but are also designed to keep Bear excited and engaged with their wholesome simplicity.

The Magic of Pumpkin in Dog Treats

Pumpkin is not just a symbol of autumn but also a superfood in the canine world. Rich in fiber, vitamins A, C, and E, and antioxidants, pumpkin supports digestive health and immune function, making it an excellent ingredient for dog treats. Michelle chooses pumpkin for her homemade treats because it’s gentle on Bear’s stomach and he loves the taste.

Crafting the 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Dog Treats

Understanding that dogs’ preferences can change, Michelle appreciates the simplicity and flexibility of recipes with minimal ingredients. Her 3 ingredient pumpkin dog treats are a hit with Bear, offering a tasty, healthy snack that’s easy to prepare.


  • Pumpkin Puree: Acts as the main flavor component and digestible fiber source.
  • Peanut Butter: Provides a creamy texture and palatable taste, plus a good protein source.
  • Eggs: Help bind the ingredients together and contribute additional protein.

The Recipe: Simple and Nutritious


  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (ensure it’s 100% pumpkin, not pie filling)
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter (xylitol-free)
  • 2 large eggs


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until well combined into a dough.
  3. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface and use a cookie cutter to create shapes, or simply drop spoonfuls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.
  5. Let cool completely before giving to Bear to ensure they are firm and easy to digest.

Bear’s Taste Adventures

The first time Michelle whipped up these treats, Bear was immediately drawn to the kitchen by the smell of pumpkin and peanut butter mixing together. His enthusiastic tail wags and attentive sits as the treats cooled were a clear sign of his approval. Michelle delights in watching Bear enjoy these homemade treats, knowing they are safe, healthy, and made with love.

Keeping Bear Engaged with Variety

Michelle knows the importance of keeping treat options varied to maintain Bear’s interest. She often tweaks the basic recipe by adding a dash of cinnamon for extra flavor or substituting pumpkin with sweet potato as a seasonal variation. This approach keeps Bear eager and attentive, always wondering what delicious treats are coming next.

Conclusion: Embracing Seasonal Simplicity

Michelle’s 3 ingredient pumpkin dog treats exemplify how simple ingredients can be turned into a festive and healthy snack for dogs. By sharing this recipe, Michelle hopes to inspire other dog owners to explore homemade treat making, which not only brings joy to their pets but also strengthens the bond they share through personal care and attention.

For Michelle and Bear, each treat is a celebration of the season and a testament to the simple joys of life they share together in Nashville. Through her blog, Michelle continues to engage a community of dog lovers who are eager to provide the best for their pets with easy, nutritious recipes.
