Pumpkin is a great ingredient to work with for two reasons. The first reason being pumpkin is inexpensive. You can get a whole can of pure pumpkin for right under $2.00. The second reason pumpkin is wonderful to cook with is because it is so healthy.

We can’t forget about the dogs! If Charlie could eat human food, these would be a treat for him every day. Not only will the health benefits from pumpkin work on humans, dogs as well can benefit from a natural homemade dog treat.
You are in control of the ingredients going into the bodies of your pets. There is no better way than making dog treats yourself. These treats are cheaper than a box of natural dog treats in the store. Store them in an airtight container and they can last the majority of the fall with giving your pet one treat a day.
Make sure when you are out buying pumpkin for the easy pumpkin recipes above, you are making the right purchase. Be careful if a recipe calls for pure pumpkin vs. pumpkin pie filling. They are two different ingredients. You would not want to be adding pumpkin pie filling into your slow-cooker pumpkin chili. I don’t think it would turn out very well. Happy Fall!
