Homemade No-Bake Dog Treats with Pumpkin and Oats

Why No-Bake Dog Treats? As a dog owner I like to know exactly what I am feeding my dogs. Most of the food they eat is not homemade it is store bought so when it comes to treats I want to know that they are getting something made with fresh wholesome ingredients that I can control. I also don't want to have to spend hours in the kitchen making something for the dogs. These dog treats are perfect. They are easy to make and don't require any baking.
Cuisine: Dog Treats
Recipe type: Dog Treats
  • ¾ cup pumpkin puree
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2½ cups oats
  • additional oats as needed for rolling
  1. In a large bowl, combine the pumpkin puree and water. Stir well to combine.
  2. Add the 2½ cups of oats to the pumpkin mixture and stir well to fully mix the ingredients.
  3. Using your hands, roll the mixture into small spheres and set them aside.
  4. After you’ve rolled the mixture into spheres, spread the additional oats on a plate, and roll the spheres in these oats to create a “coating” on the outside.
  5. Refrigerate the finished treats for 24 hours before serving to firm the pumpkin puree.
This is a No-Bake Dog Treat that is easy to make and healthy for your dog. The size of your dog is should determine the size of the Dog Treats you make. If you want to be able to give several treats throughout the day consider making these treats smaller.

  3. I love feeding my pup real ingredients. I know a lot of people feel that “human food” is bad for dogs but is giving them all those preservatives and god-knows-what-else in dog treats from the pet store bad? Hera likes this kind of stuff and I’m more comfortable knowing what she’s eating. Thanks for sharing this simple recipe!

  5. My dog loves treats, but I don’t have a lot of time to make them homemade. These look quick and easy, and like something my dog would really enjoy. THANK YOU for sharing with us on the Friday Frenzy link up, and we hope you’ll join us again this week!


  6. Oh, I love this recipe! My daughter has severe food allergies and most of the dog treats that we would get for both of our dogs are not safe for our daughter, so I love that I know exactly what is in the treats! Thank you for stopping by the Thoughtful Spot Weekly Blog Hop and sharing with all of our readers! I have featured your post as one of my favorites this week 🙂 Hope you will visit us again each Monday!

  7. This sounds Great I do a lot of baking biscuits that are all natural & have a 3 month shelf life. What is the shelf life on these & do they need to be refrigerated?

  8. My beagle Bailey would consume these IF I also included some meat, otherwise he would turn his sweet nose up at them. I suggest canned bison tripe. It’s terribly stinky but oh my gosh, it’s so tasty to dogs and ultra healthy!

  9. Are the oats regular or quick? Or does it matter?

  10. jennifer rush says

    What a neat idea

  11. Hi – How many treats does this make? (of the size in the picture) Also, do they need to be refrigerated? Thanks!

  12. My daschund pug mix went CRAZY for these treats. She ate the dish i put it in. Lol

  13. What fun treats. My cat might even like these. She’s big into homemade treats, like chicken. She also likes people food, but we don’t feel it to her.

  14. I made these little treats for both our little dogs. One requires small mess (pills) for his seizures, so I added a small hole that was perfect to place his pill in. Also one of our dogs doesn’t care for pumpkin by itself so I added 2 tablespoons of organic peanut butter. They love these! This makes 3 weeks of treats for our boys. Thank you for sharing this simple recipe.

  15. Oh, I really like this one; it’s no bake, simple, & my dogs LOVE all things pumpkin!

    How long do these treats keep?

    • I honestly hate to give storage advice because I live in a warm humid climate. In an airtight container they certainly can last as long as anything else you would keep on the counter or in the fridge. In the freezer they would last quiet a while if put away properly and only take a few out to thaw at a time.

  17. This may seem like a silly question but once they are refrigerated for 24 hours can they then be stored at room temperature? Or must they remain in the fridge?

  18. i have made something almost like that but used oats peanut butter pumpkin cinnamon honey all organic. dogs loved them. My Tip loves her pumpkin and peanut butter, anytime i make her treats she gets so excited. i also used chopped apple rolled on treats

  19. Do I need to keep in air tight container and/ or in the fridge? Can you please answer asap Thank you so much!!!!

  20. Just made this! Three them in an ice cube tray and froze.. Will that make a huge difference? Or should I have kept them refrigerated?

  21. Jennifer Boehme says

    I just made these, and did all but re-roll in oats, and she loves them! They turned out just like you said. I did a double batch, and it filled a very large pizza pan, full. Thank you for these recipes!

  22. I made these with my Granddaughter a few weeks ago which was great fun in itself. Our 3 dogs love them! Getting ready to make another big batch today. So easy and inexpensive and sooo much better for them than store bought.

  23. Shannon G says

    Thanks for sharing, I also added in some chia seeds 🙂

  24. Teri Miller says

    Have you ever tried freezing these?

  25. Are these treats hard to chew? I have an elderly dog & she struggles to eat anything that is too hard.

  26. My Chihuahua is picky,what kind of oats do I use

  27. My Chihuahua is picky,what kind of oats do I use

  28. My poodle is so picky! I made these for him and he never got tired of them! He loves them! Thanks 🙂

  29. I made these and used peanut butter instead of water they held together great. My dog loved them they weren’t sweet but a good treat for her. Healthy, no sugar, and small treats. Thank you for this easy and good dog treat.

  30. I made this and used peanut butter instead of the water. My dog loves these! 100℅
