In a large bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, apple, water, oil, and cinnamon. Gradually add whole wheat flour and oats, stirring until fully combined.
Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness on a lightly-floured surface. Use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes, re-rolling and cutting scraps as needed.
Bake on an ungreased, parchment-lined baking sheet for 20-40 minutes, depending on the size of the cookie cutter you've used.* The treats should be lightly browned and dry to the touch.
Cool treats completely on a wire rack before feeding or storing in an airtight container.**
Amanda’s notes:*The 1-1/4" x 2-1/8" and 3-1/2" x 1-7/8" dog bone shaped cookies photographed in the recipe post took 20-25 minutes to bake.**We’ve found that the treats keep well in a canister at room temperature for up to 3 days, or refrigerated for about a week. As homemade treats don’t contain preservatives, always check for signs of mold before feeding.Estimated Nutritional Analysis (per full batch)1265.85 Calories, 10.8% Protein Calories, 17% fat Calories, 68.4% Carbohydrate Calories
