Halloween Spiced Pumpkin Biscuit Bones 🦴

Hey, fellow pet lovers!

Since today is Halloween, I wanted to share one of our previous treat recipes which is our Halloween spiced pumpkin biscuit bones recipe that your canine friends are going to love! If you’re a frequent visitor to epoch.pet, then you’ll know that I don’t usually allow my girls to eat many veggies, as they’re raw fed. However, since it’s Halloween, I thought I’d give them a little treat.

Let jump straight into today’s short and simple post!


Halloween Spiced Pumpkin Biscuit Bones 🦴

What will you need?

  • 1/2 cup of pureed pumpkin, canned or fresh but make sure it is unsweetened!!
  • Two tablespoons of coconut oil softened.
  • Four tablespoons of water, plus more if needed.
  • 1/2 to 3/4 a cup of coconut flour.
  • One teaspoon of cinnamon.
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda.
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder.
  • One egg.

Once you have all your ingredients we can move on and start making your furry friend some delicious pumpkin treats

Step One, Make your Pumpkin Puree πŸŽƒ

The first thing we need to do is make our pure pumpkin puree and all you have to do is prepare the pumpkin by removing its insides, then stick it in the oven to bake. However, you could buy tinned pumpkin if you wanted, as it will make it a lot quicker, but we had a few homegrown pumpkins to use that were leftover from our garden. To make your pumpkin puree cut your pumpkin in half and spoon out its insides and discard.

Then cut your remaining pumpkin into wedges and place on a non-stick baking tray, or line your tray with baking paper, place your pumpkin skin side up and bake for a little longer than 1 hour at about 375F (190C) until tender. Mine took a bit longer than an hour, but that is what the original recipe said, so keep checking on it now and then. Once cooked, remove the skin from the flesh while still warm as this makes it a lot easier and then puree until smooth. If your pureed pumpkin is too thick, add a few spoonfuls of water when pureeing.

Step Two, Mix your pureed pumpkin, water and coconut oil.

The second step to do is to mix your pumpkin, water and coconut oil in a mixing bowl until smooth.

  • 1/2 cup of unsweetened pureed pumpkin (canned or fresh).
  • Two tablespoons of coconut oil softened.
  • Four tablespoons of water, you can add more if needed.

Step Three, Add the dry ingredients.

Dry mixing

The next step is to add your dry ingredients to your mixture of pureed pumpkin, water and coconut oil. Your dry ingredients are:

  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup of coconut flour.
  • One teaspoon of cinnamon.
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda.
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder.

Apologies about the varying amount of coconut flour, I started off adding 1/2 a cup then ended up just sprinkling more in during step five as my mixture was too soft, so add as much as you need so the dough comes together nicely.

Remember coconut flour is seriously absorbent, and a little goes a long way!

Step Four, Add the egg.

Now we need to add the egg into our mixture and also a few spoons of water if your dough needs it. During step five, I got a bit worried as I had realised that the coconut flour had made a total different mixture than the original recipe and it was far softer than it should have been. However, as I mentioned in the previous step, I just sprinkled some more coconut flour in until I got a consistency I liked. If you do accidentally add too much coconut flour, then add a little more water or pumpkin puree. Add the remaining wet ingredient, which is one egg.

Step Five, ensure everything is nicely mixed.

In the original recipe, you should be able to form a dough ball and roll it out, but my mixture was far too soft to do so, instead, make sure everything is nicely mixed in and get your chosen moulds ready. Since the mixture was fairly wet, it wouldn’t have withstood if I’d rolled it out so therefore using a cookie cutter is a no go. However, you can follow the original recipe if you want and use wheat flour, but I didn’t want to as it is not very good for our canine friends, so I opted for coconut flour instead which is why my mixture was less firm.

Step Six, Place your mixture in your chosen moulds.

I was a bit gutted that I couldn’t use my little bone cookie cutters, but thankfully my bone moulds worked just as well. Place your mixture in whatever moulds you have chosen but firstly oil them to ensure your treats don’t stick when you try to remove them. I just placed a little bit of coconut oil in my moulds before adding the mixture. There are so many fun and creative moulds out there, and you literally could opt for any design you like. 

I’ve added two links to various moulds which you may like to purchase for your treats, I’ve got both of these moulds but haven’t used my Halloween moulds yet. To order simply follow the links below.

By purchasing through this link you are supporting epoch.pet as we get a small amount of commission, with no extra cost to you. This money helps keep the blog up and running and allows us to purchase pet products to review on our site. I only ever review products that are tried and tested by my girls and I think are great!

Step Seven, Place your treats in the oven to bake.

We are so close to having finished treats, and my girls were both around me at this point, staring with their puppy dog eyes. Thankfully, these treats don’t take too long to cook, so your four-legged friend doesn’t have very long to wait for their tasty treats. Place your filled moulds in the oven at about 350 degrees F or 175 C, then bake for about 30 – 35 minutes. I might have left mine in a tiny bit too long, but they still came out great, my moulds were pretty thick so if you opted for smaller ones keep a close eye on your treats as they will most likely be finished quicker.

Step Eight, Place your finished treats in an airtight container.

Woo, you finally have your own homemade Halloween pumpkin treats that your pet is going to love! πŸ’—

Really mam, how many photos do you need???

I enjoyed making my girls these tasty treats, and they seem to love them, which is always great. Pumpkin is excellent for your dog’s digestive health and is full of fibre. Also, coconut oil is a healthy fat that will provide your pet with plenty of energy and cinnamon is a beautiful spice that is great for your pooch in moderation. You could make a batch of these tasty treats and hand them out to pooches who come knocking for trick or treat or keep them all for your little devil. Feed these treats in moderation with them having cinnamon in and also never leave your pet unsupervised while eating.


These delicious yet straightforward treats are really great to make for your canine friend this Halloween.
