As I mentioned in my last post, I am taking a Junk Food hiatus for one month. Today is the first day, and so far so good, but we’ll see what happens when I get home tonight…
Also, as I mentioned, both my hubby and my puppy are joining me for this adventure.

Molly, is pretty much a dog vacuum. She’ll eat pretty much everything and anything that crosses her path…except vegetables. She will not eat them (except for carrots), so I wanted to find a treat recipe that was easy to make, and had some nutrients in them minus the “yuck” that comes in most dog treats.
Then I came across this recipe for Peanut Butter Pumpkin Treats. I loved that it combined peanut butter with pumpkin which means it fits perfectly into my fall baking series. After all, puppies deserve some Fall Baking too, right?
The verdict: Molly LOVES THEM so much. I used them to bribe her to let me trim her nails and they worked like a charm. They’d also be great for training purposes because they are soft and easy to break into small pieces.
Plus, they’re super, super easy to make!
I don’t have ANY cookie cutters for some reason, so I just pulled dough off, rolled them in a ball and pressed them down with my thumb! Perfect little bite sized treats!
