Fall is here. It’s that time of year when nearly everything becomes pumpkin-flavored. I even saw pumpkin spice peanut butter, M&Ms and Oreo cookies. But my favorites are pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and pumpkin pie. Being an avid cheesecake-lover, the idea of making a pumpkin cheesecake sounds awesome! And when I can make some for my dogs, it’s even better. Plus, today’s National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day. What better way to celebrate than with dogs and a yummy treat?

Dog Treats 

Dog Pack Snacks have created a recipe that’s ideal for this occasion.

To make the crust, you’ll need:
  • 2/3 cup quick oats
  • 1 teaspoon blackstrap molasses
  • 2 teaspoons peanut butter
  • 1/8 to 1/4 cup water

Mix it all together. The dough will be thick and sticky. Scoop a teaspoon of the crust into each mini muffin pan section. Press the crust to take the shape of the muffin cup.


Dog Treats 

To make the filling, you’ll need:
  • 1/3 cup cream cheese
  • 2/3 cup canned pumpkin puree (do not use pumpkin pie mix)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • a dash of ground ginger

Mix all the ingredients together until the cream cheese is well-blended with the pumpkin. Place a tablespoon of the mixture into the crust-ready muffin pan. If you’d like to include a bacon garnish, place a piece of cooked bacon on top. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes at 350 degrees.

If your dog is on a special diet, please check with your vet before giving him these treats.
