Vegan Barks-a-lot Pumpkin Flax Dog Biscuits

* If you make a purchase after clicking one of my links, I may receive a small commission.

Our pup LOVES going to Grandma's house because she can swim, play with her bestie, Scruff, play with all his toys, and most of all, get fresh baked cookies! This is Grammy's vegan dog biscuit recipe and the puppies LOVE it!

Makes 80 dog bone shaped dog biscuits.

What You Need:
1/4 cup ground flax
scant 1/2 cup water
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
2 tbsp peanut butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups of the whole wheat pastry flour

What You Do:
Preheat oven to 350
Whisk the flax and water together and let it sit for a few minutes until it's nice and thick.
Stir in the peanut butter and pumkin puree.
Stir in the cinnamon and salt.
Stir in the flour until it is all combined and crumbly.
Then work the dough with your hands until smooth.
Cut the log into 4 pieces and roll each piece out individually with a rolling pin until just under 1/4 inch thick.
Use a cookie cutter to cut out your cookie shapes.
Bake for 38 to 40 minutes
Leave them on the pan until they are totally cool. This is what gets them nice and crispy.

Store in an airtight container.
We have no idea how long they keep because the dogs gobble them up pretty quickly.
They can also be frozen!

Here is the Flaxseed we use. It is organic. Even the puppies eat organic treats!

The flax gets mixed with the water and can sit out for a few minutes until it thickens.

Puppies don't like waiting...

Then stir in your peanut butter, pumpkin, cinnamon, and salt.

Then your flour gets mixed in until it cannot be mixed anymore.

Next, you work the dough with your hands until it is a nice, smooth log, and divide it in 4 sections or whatever is easiest to roll out.

Roll out each section.

Then use your cookie cutter to cut out your shapes. We like to use the dog bone shape because we're pretty sure most dogs prefer that shape.

Then place them on parchment paper on your baking sheets...

...and pop them in the oven.

This is where the barking comes into play. Dogs really don't like waiting for 40 minutes.

Woof, woof, woof!

They start to get annoyed... This is taking way too long!

They are finally finished!

Now be a good doggie and you get a cookie!

Seriously, dogs LOVE these.
