Yield: 24 cookies

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes


  • 1 cup pumpkin puree 
  • 2 eggs 
  • ½ cup water or milk 
  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour 
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup oats 
  • ½ tbsp baking powder 
  • ½ tsp cinnamon  


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet. 
  2. In a large bowl, combine puree, eggs and milk. Stir until combined. 
  3. Gradually add in flours, oats, baking powder and cinnamon; stir until just combined. 
  4. Using a lightly floured work surface, roll out dough to 1/4-inch thick. If dough is too sticky add a pinch more flour until no longer sticky. Use a cookie cutter of your choice to cut out desired treat shape (we used a bone shape.) 
  5. Use a spatula to transfer cookies to baking sheet. Bake for 20-40 minutes, based on level of crunch desired. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack.
