Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. In a large bowl combine the flour, flaxseed meal, and turmeric.

  • In a small bowl, stir together the egg, broth, pumpkin, and honey. Using a wooden spoon, stir pumpkin mixture into flour mixture until as well mixed as possible. Using hands, continue kneading dough until fully combined (dough will be quite stiff).

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to between 1/8- and 1/4-inch thick. Using 1 1/2-inch cookie cutters or a sharp knife, cut into desired shapes. Arrange shapes on prepared baking sheet. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until biscuits feel dry and firm (treats will continue to harden as they cool). 

  • Store treats in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks or freeze up to 3 months.

Tips

Be sure to use regular canned pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling. Treats should make up no more than 10 percent of a dog's daily calorie intake.
