Yield: Varies 

1 15-oz can pumpkin
½ cup peanut butter
½ cup coconut oil, melted
4 (organic, cage-free) eggs
cups coconut flour

Preheat oven to 350° F. In a large bowl, whisk together pumpkin, peanut butter, coconut oil and eggs until smooth. Add coconut flour. Mix until well combined. Let rest for 5 to 10 minutes to thicken.

Place dough in between two pieces of parchment paper and roll the dough until it’s about one-quarter-inch thick. Remove the top layer of the parchment paper and cut shapes with cookie cutters (consider the size of the dog when selecting cutter sizes).

Bake for 45 to 55 minutes until treats are dry and hard. Let cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
