If you think your dog is a peach, these treats are perfect for your pooch! Peaches are in season, and we decided to pick a few of the fuzzy favorites for our gluten free Peach and Pumpkin Cobbler Treats. Peaches make a sweet treat for pups, as long as you remove the pit. We also used fresh peaches, because the canned variety is often preserved in syrup, and it’s extra sugar your dog doesn’t need. On top of that, pumpkin and Perfect Form work wonders on canine digestive systems, and the gluten free flours we added are ideal for sensitive stomachs. Peach and Pumpkin Cobbler Treats   Print Recipe Ingredients 1 cup peaches cubed1/2 cup pumpkin puree1 cup rice flour brown or white1 cup buckwheat flour1/2 cup gluten-free oats1 teaspoon cinnamon1 tablespoon The Honest Kitchen Perfect Form1 tablespoon flax seeds ground1 tablespoon peanut butter1/8 cup water Instructions Preheat oven to 350˚F.

Fiber and protein rich, buckwheat is a great choice for dogs with sensitive stomachs. Don’t let its name fool you—buckwheat isn’t wheat at all. In fact, it’s closely related to rhubarb, and when its kernels are ground, it becomes gluten-free flour that’s full of fiber, essential vitamins, and protein. You can use it as an alternative to white flour, which is what we did with our Gluten Free Force Buckwheat Dog Treat recipe. We’ve also added chickpea flour and The Honest Kitchen’s force dry formula for an added punch of protein and tastiness.
