Pumpkin Molasses Dog Treats

Don’t let the cold weather keep your dog from enjoying these gluten-free treats!

Wintertime is a perfect excuse to break out a few new recipes for the pooches in your house. Our Pumpkin Molasses homemade dog treats are not only easy to make, but might tempt you to sneak a bite! In moderation, molasses is a wonderful sweetener that’s perfect for use in dog treats. In fact, molasses contains vitamin-B6, copper, iron, calcium, potassium, and other beneficial minerals. And for a digestive boost, we’ve added The Honest Kitchen’s Instant Goat’s Milk and pumpkin puree to the mix.
