Pumpkin is such a versatile ingredient and is great for your dog's digestive system. It's low in fat, high in fiber and a great source of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidant.

This recipe also includes nutrient-dense parsley which has both digestion-soothing and breath freshening properties, as well as garbanzo bean flour which is high in plant-base protein and fiber, but low in carbs.

So much goodness in these little mouthfuls!

Lower your oven temperature for gluten-free flours

Gluten free flours are a little more sensitive than wheat-based flours and burn faster. To make sure these pumpkin parsley dog treats bake evenly without burning I set the oven to 325F rather than 350F as I would have done for whole-wheat treats.

It's a good idea to remember this if you're substituting a GF flour for a wheat-based flour in a recipe. In that situation my rule of thumb is to reduce the oven temperatur by 25 degrees.

Ingredients List

  • 2 cups garbanzo bean flour
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 3 tbsp coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
