Pumpkin is a good source of fiber plus antioxidants in the form of vitamins A, C and E. It's also noted as a remedy for digestive issues such as diarrhea and constipation - yes I know that's sounds strange but don't shoot the messenger!
Be sure to use straight pumpkin - not pie filling, but I'm sure you knew that.
Not all cinnamon is created equal when it comes to dogs. The best kind to use in treat recipes is Ceylon cinnamon and while the aroma will get Fido's attention, the ASPCA recommends not going over one teaspoon in any dog treat recipe.
Coconut flour is made entirely from coconut meat and is a good nutritional alternative to grain flours as is almond flour. Both are naturally gluten free.
