Recipe: Pumpkin and Oatmeal Cookies

A healthy and super-easy-to-make treat for your furry friend.

¿Quieres darle a tu amigo peludo un tentempié delicioso y sano? Las galletas de calabaza y avena son una opción perfecta. These biscuits are not only easy to make, but also packed with nutrients that benefit your dog or cat.

Unique ingredients:

  • 150 grams of pumpkin.
  • 270 g oat flour or ground oats (to taste).
  • 1 large or 2 medium eggs (as preferred).

Preparation:

  1. Prepare the pumpkin: Start by steaming the pumpkin in very little water. This cooking method helps to preserve the pumpkin’s essential nutrients. Once cooked, be sure to drain well to prevent excess water from affecting the consistency of the dough. Mash the pumpkin into a smooth, homogeneous puree.
  2. Prepare the egg: In a bowl, beat the large egg (or two medium eggs) until well blended. The egg not only adds flavour, but also acts as a binder, holding all the ingredients together.
  3. Mix the ingredients together: Add the pumpkin puree to the beaten egg. Mix well until both ingredients are completely integrated This mixture will be the base for your biscuits.
  4. Add the oat flour (or ground oats): Gradually add the oat flour or ground oats to the pumpkin-egg mixture. Mix until you get a dough that forms a manageable ball. The oats themselves are excellent for your dog’s digestion and provide a perfect texture for the biscuits.
  5. Form the biscuits: Roll out the dough on a floured surface using a rolling pin. The dough should have a uniform thickness to ensure even baking. Use fun moulds to cut out the biscuits and give them cool shapes. Our furry friends will love any shape, but you’ll love the way they look!
  6. Baking: Preheat the oven to 180°C. Place the biscuits on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown and crisp.
  7. Allow to cool: Once baked, allow the biscuits to cool completely. This step is crucial, as hot biscuits can be dangerous for them.
    And now it’s time to… Enjoy!
