Halloween doesn't have to be restricted to humans anymore. If you're the type of person who likes to get your dog in on the fun by dressing it up in little costumes, you may be interested in these recipes for Halloween-themed dog treats.

Terror-ific Treats

1 cup rolled oats

1/3 cup margarine

1 cup boiling water

3/4 cup cornmeal

2 teaspoons white sugar

2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules

1/2 cup milk

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

1 egg

, beaten

3 cups whole wheat flour

COOK: 30 mins

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). In a large bowl, combine rolled oats, margarine, and boiling water.

Let stand 10 minutes. Grease cookie sheets.

Thoroughly stir in cornmeal, sugar, bouillon, milk, Cheddar cheese, and egg. Mix in flour, 1 cup at a time, until a stiff dough has formed.

Knead dough on a lightly floured surface, mixing in additional flour as necessary until dough is smooth and no longer sticky. Roll or pat out dough to 1/2" thickness. Cut with cookie cutter (I prefer bone shaped), and place 1 inch apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.

Bake 35 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. Cool before serving. Store in a loosely covered container.

Great Pumpkin Bites

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

2 eggs

1/2 cup canned pumpkin

2 tablespoons peanut butter

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Whisk together the flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. Add water as needed to help make the dough workable, but the dough should be dry and stiff.

Roll the dough into a 1/2-inch-thick roll. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces.

Bake in preheated oven until hard, about 40 minutes.

Monster Mash Banana Treats

2 cups water

2 bananas, mashed

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 egg

4 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

COOK: 50 mins

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Lightly grease 2 large baking sheets.

Combine water, mashed bananas, honey, vanilla, and egg in a large bowl.

Stir in whole-wheat flour and baking powder.

Beat dough with an electric mixer on medium speed until ingredients are thoroughly combined, 1 to 2 minutes.

Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead until no longer sticky, 5 to 8 minutes.

Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness and cut into mini shapes with your favorite cookie cutter.

Place dough shapes on prepared baking sheets.

Bake in preheated oven until cookies are lightly browned, about 20 minutes.

Turn off the oven and leave cookies until thoroughly dry and crisp, 30 to 40 more minutes.

Remove baking sheets from oven and allow cookies to cool on pans for 10 minutes.

Transfer cookies to wire rack to fully cool.
