Dog Lovin' - Pumpkin Chickpea Quinoa Dog Treat Recipe {Gluten Free}

Pumpkin Chickpea Quinoa Dog Treat Recipe {Gluten Free}

Sharing a new dog treat recipe I created yesterday - Pumpkin Chickpea Quinoa Dog Treats. They are gluten-free and packed with lots of vitamins, fiber and protein.  I usually have a container of cooked quinoa in my fridge and thought it would make a healthy addition to these treats.  The quinoa plus the chickpea flour give them a power boost of protein and make them easier to digest.

They're soft and chewy and it's easy to pinch off a piece if you want to use them for training. Keep in mind they have a lot of fiber in them, so don't give too many at once!

Be sure to also check out my other dog treat recipes...they are all gluten-free.  Indigo & Lily love them and I hope your pups do too!

Pumpkin Chickpea Quinoa Dog Treats {Gluten-Free}

Recipe by Laura Ashman Jolna

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 12 min
Total time: 17 min
Yield: 22-24 treats

  • 1 cup garbanzo bean (chickpea) flour, gluten-free
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree, canned
  • 1/2 cup quinoa, cooked
  • 1/4 cup applesauce, unsweetened
  • 1 Tbsp molasses
Preheat oven to 350º.

Mix all dry ingredients together in a medium bowl with a whisk.

Mix all wet ingredients together in a separate bowl with a whisk.  Add wet ingredients to dry and stir well with a spatula until mixed.  Refrigerate dough for at least 30 minutes.

Scoop on baking sheet coated with cooking spray using small cookie scoop.  Flatten with a wet fork.

Bake 12 minutes.  Cool on wire rack.  Store in the refrigerator as there aren't any preservatives used.

I use Bob's Red Mill for the chickpea flour & flaxseed meal.  I buy it at my local health food store, but you can also buy them at
You can also substitute the garbanzo bean flour with oat flour.

Happy Dog Lovin'!


  1. The quinoa has a neutral taste and acts as more of a base (instead of flour). It's a great substitution and my dogs love these treats!
