Peanut Butter & Bacon Homemade Dog Treats Ingredients:
- 1 cup creamy natural peanut butter
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 large egg
- 2 cups whole wheat flour plus 1 Tablespoon
- 1/2 Tablespoon baking powder
- 4 strips bacon – cooked and crumbled
- 1/2 cup oats, old fashioned
- 4 1/2″ dog bone cookie cutter (Like this one)
1. Preheat oven to 325°. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, add the peanut butter, milk and egg. Stir well until mixed.
3. Add the flour and baking powder. Mix well to incorporate all of the ingredients.
4. Knead the dough 8-10 times until it is firm and elastic. You can knead directly in the bowl or if you prefer, on a level workspace.
5. 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 4-5 more times to distribute the bacon and oats.
6. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out to 1/4″ thickness. Cut out 12 dog bone shapes with your cookie cutter and place on the lined baking sheet.
7. Bake for 20 minutes and cool on a wire rack.
You can store these peanut butter and bacon dog treats in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, if they last that long. You can also freeze them for up to 1 month.
