Easy recipe for hypoallergenic dog treats for Thanksgiving

Before we get into the recipe, I want to walk you through a few quick but important notes.

This is primarily a hypoallergenic dog snack for puppies who are allergic to turkey and/or eggs.

However, all dog food allergies are different, so I cannot 100% guarantee that they are hypoallergenic for all dogs. If you have any concerns about any of the ingredients, please contact your veterinarian.

That covers it! On to the recipe! Stay tuned though as I’ll add some extra tips and helpful substitutions.

Ingredients for these homemade dog treats:

  • 1/2 C canned pumpkin puree (NO pumpkin pie filling)
  • 4 tbsp blackstrap molasses
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 C whole wheat flour*
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder

Blackstrap molasses is the best kind for dogs because it contains the least amount of sugar. But if you can’t find that, you can use regular dark molasses. It is safe in moderate amounts.

You can also use REAL maple syrup instead of molasses if you like. But it MUST be the real stuff, not the cheap $2 “maple flavored” stuff. That’s basically just corn syrup and fake flavors.

For the vegetable oil, you can replace it with coconut oil if desired.

Finally, if your dog is allergic to whole wheat flour, you can use almond flour. It’s a great dog-friendly flour alternative.

Ingredients for the glaze:

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons meringue powder
  • 1/2 C powdered sugar
  • 3-4 tbsp Golden yellow gel food coloring

Don’t want to use icing? Try peanut butter instead! Mix it with a little cinnamon or other spices and spread it on just like you would with the frosting.

Cookie cutter:


The one we originally used is no longer available, but you can use this turkey-shaped version Amazon. It works just as well, I promise.

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking tray/baking tray with baking paper.
  • Mix pumpkin puree, molasses, oil and water in a bowl.
  • Mix whole wheat flour, baking soda and baking powder together.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and stir well.
  • Wrap the dough in cling film and place it in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  • Remove the dough and let it soften for about 15 minutes.
  • Place the flour on a cutting board and take a rolling pin.
  • Begin rolling out the dough on the floured surface. If it sticks to the rolling pin, add some flour to the dough and work it in.
  • Roll out the dough and cut out the turkeys with the cookie cutter.
  • Transfer the unbaked cookies to the baking sheet with a spatula.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
  • Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheet.

Ice Instructions:

  • Combine all ingredients (except gel food coloring) in a bowl.
  • Use an electric mixer to beat on low until stiff peaks form.
  • Add golden yellow gel food coloring. Mix well.
  • Spoon into an icing bag with a #2 tip.
  • Twist the open end of the piping bag to push the icing toward the tip.
  • Outline the turkey with the golden icing.
  • Let dry for about 1 hour.

That is it! When you’re done, you’ll have a super cute, hypoallergenic Thanksgiving dog treat that your pup will love! The best part? Thanks to the pumpkin, it’s packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber and other things that are good for Fido!
