Bark Bakery: 3 Pet-Friendly Treats You Can Make this Fall!

If there’s one thing humans look forward to the most during the cozy, fall season, it’s the food. If you find yourself feeling guilty when you notice your four-legged friend staring up at you with big sad eyes, begging for a bite of your food, we get it!

As much as we want to share our treats with our fur babies, we need to make sure what feed them is safe to munch on. To ensure your furry friend enjoys seasonal treats as much as you do, we’ve put together a nice list of fido-friendly treats, with no tricks. Let’s get to baking!

Oat, Cinnamon and Apple Dog Treats

  • 3 cups of oats
  • 2 apples
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of flaxseed
  • 2 tablespoons of honey


This recipe is so simple, even your dog could do it! To start, grind 3 cups of oats in a food processor and set them aside. Then, use your food processer to grind up apples until they look like applesauce. Combine the oats, apples, cinnamon, flaxseed and honey in a large mixing bowl until you reach a doughy consistency. Spread out the dough and use a cookie cutter of your choice to make the biscuits. Once you’ve carefully placed all the biscuits on a cookie sheet, bake at 350º for 15 minutes. Let the biscuits cool and allow your furry friend to enjoy!

Pumpkin and Peanut Butter Bites

  • 1 cup of canned pumpkin
  • ½ cup of xylitol-free peanut butter (this is very important)
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour (or a dog safe flour substitute)


Start by preheating your oven to 375º. While the oven heats up, mix the pumpkin and peanut butter together in a medium mixing bowl. Then, slowly mix in the flour. After reaching a dough-like consistency, roll the dough flat and use a cookie cutter of your choice to cut out shapes. Bake for 12 minutes, let cool and watch your pup enjoy this sweet treat!

Sweet Potato and Carrot ‘Jerky’

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Carrots


While this recipe does not require a lot of ingredients or work, it does require a bit of patience! Thinly slice your sweet potatoes and carrots and place them on a cookie sheet. Then, cook them at your oven’s lowest setting for up to 10 hours, or until the veggies turn dark and leathery. Allow the ‘jerky’ to cool and let your pup enjoy this crunchy treat!
