Peanut Butter and Bacon Homemade Dog Treats

Recipe courtesy of Chris Carrington

  • 1 cup creamy natural peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups plus 1 tablespoon whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
  • 4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees (F). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, add the peanut butter, milk, and egg. Stir until well mixed. Add the flour and baking powder. Mix well to incorporate all of the ingredients.

  3. Knead the dough until it is firm and elastic. You can knead directly in the bowl, or if you prefer, on a level workspace. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of flour onto your workspace and place the kneaded ball of dough on top. Flatten the dough a bit and sprinkle the crumbled bacon and oats on top. Knead the dough four or five more times to distribute the bacon and oats.

  4. Drop by spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet. 

  5. Bake for 20 minutes and cool on a wire rack.

  6. You can store these peanut butter and bacon dog treats in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, if they last that long. You can also freeze them for up to 1 month.
