Recipe: Healthy Dog Treats with Spinach and Zucchini

These treats are healthy and safe for virtually any pup. They’re a great option for dogs with digestive issues and offer a low calorie snack for pets on a diet. There are about 45 calories in each treat, but you can easily break them into smaller pieces to offer less calories per treat.


  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 large carrot (shredded)
  • 1 zucchini (shredded)
  • 1 cup baby spinach (chopped)


Preheat your oven to 350˚F.

Whisk the pumpkin puree, peanut butter and eggs together in a mixing bowl. Gradually add the oats and flour and mix until a stiff dough forms.

Finally, add the carrot, zucchini and spinach. Knead the dough until the vegetables are evenly distributed.

Drop tablespoon-sized balls of dough on a well greased cookie sheet. Bake in the 350˚ oven for 20-25 minutes. You’ll know when the treats are finished because the edges will begin to turn brown.
