As we start planning our Thanksgiving dinner, we can’t forget to make a meal for those we’re incredibly thankful to have in our lives each day – our pets! In this blog, we’re putting together a Thanksgiving recipe for pets that will be an entree and dessert that is suitable for both cats and dogs. Your furkiddo is sure to finish every last bite!

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F

2. Add the oat flour and apple sauce into a bowl and mix together until it forms a dough. Add more oat flour if the consistency is still runny.

3. Take small portions of the dough and roll it flat before molding the sides to form a basket. Place the baskets in a muffin tin.

4. Bake the baskets for 5 minutes at 350°F and then let them cool.

5. While the baskets are baking in the oven, mix the remaining ingredients into a bowl to form the pumpkin pie mixture.

6. Once the baskets are out of the oven and have cooled, scoop a tablespoon of the pumpkin pie mixture into the baskets.

7. Bake the tarts for 10 minutes at 350°F and then let them cool once cooked.

8. Add your pet’s required supplement dosage on top of the tartlet and serve. Your pet will love the flavor of the pumpkin and it’s a great way to disguise the supplements into their food!
