Homemade Peanut Butter Bacon Dog Treats.

If you have any questions or concerns about the ingredients used, please consult with your veterinarian.

Peanut Butter Bacon Dog Treats - pups LOVE them and they're so easy to make.

If you read my blog regularly, surely you know who Jude is.

If you’ve never visited my blog before, meet my little (big) man. A 115lb rescue Rottweiler/German Shepherd from a small town in Colorado. His previous owners left him and his sister to die in a deserted house. Kevin adopted him from Second Chance Animal Rescue.

Homemade Peanut Butter Bacon Dog Treats - easy, 1 bowl!

This is Jude.

Professional SBA employee, part grizzly bear, cuddle monster, mailman hater, cookie sniffer, and peanut butter lover. He lays with me when I’m sick, he jumps on the bed when we’re not home, and he still thinks he’s a small puppy.

Jude!

Everyday Jude watches me bake up a storm in our tiny apartment. He sits and waits.

“Just one taste, please?”

Then I run around from my computer, to the kitchen, to the camera, and back again all day. He follows my every move. Staring at me with his big brown eyes and never able to taste a single treat.

It’s time my little best friend gets the spotlight. A homemade treat with his very favorite ingredients. Made with love, just for Jude.

Peanut Butter Bacon Dog Treats - pups LOVE them and they're so easy to make.

Jude’s favorite flavor is peanut butter. He gets it from his mom. After doing a lot of research on homemade dog treats, I confirmed with our vet that the combination of whole wheat flour, egg, milk, baking powder, oats, and peanut butter is perfectly healthy for a pup.

I added chopped bacon because it completely drives him nuts.

Peanut Butter Bacon Dog Treats - pups LOVE them and they're so easy to make.

Combine the simple ingredients together in a large bowl. Yep, this is a one bowl recipe. The dough will be extremely thick and hard to form, so use your hands for ease. Roll it out into 1/4″ thickness and use cookie cutters to make shapes. I used cookie cutters in the shape of a bone, a large heart, and a little bite-sized heart. Clearly your dog won’t care about the shapes. The cute shapes are really just for the humans. :)

The size of the treats should be based on the size of your dog. Jude is the size of a bear, so the big treats are perfect. We still break them up for him.

Arrange the shaped dough onto your baking sheet. The dog treats won’t spread in the oven, they just puff up very slightly. The treats can be close together on your baking sheet.

Bake one side for 18-20 minutes. Until very lightly browned on the bottom. Remove from the oven and flip. Bake for 10-12 additional minutes. Allow the treats to cool completely before sharing with your furry bud. Jude was going NUTS from the way our apartment smelled. Pure doggie heaven.

Go ahead. Spoil your pup with a batch of homemade treats. Their unconditional love totally deserves it.

Homemade Peanut Butter & Bacon Dog Treats

Because your pup deserves some home baked goodies too!

Yield: depends on the size of your cookie cutter

Prep Time: 10

Total Time: 45 minutes, plus cooling

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (255g) natural creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup (180ml) nonfat milk
  • 1 large egg (or 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce)
  • 2 cups (244g) whole wheat flour*
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup (30g) oats (either whole-rolled or quick oats are fine)
  • 2-3 strips bacon, chopped

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325F degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.

In a large bowl, gently mix the peanut butter, milk, and egg together with a large spoon or spatula. Switch to a whisk to make sure no lumps remain. Add the flour and baking powder. You may need to turn the dough out onto the counter and use your hands to work in the flour. Mix in the oats and chopped bacon. The dough is extremely thick and heavy.

Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out into 1/4" thickness. Cut into shapes using cookie cutters or a knife. Arrange on the baking sheets. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until very lightly browned on the bottom. Remove from the oven, and flip the treats to bake the other side for 10-12 more minutes.

Allow to cool completely before serving to your pup. Store at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Treats freeze well, up to 2 months.

*Unbleached all-purpose flour is safe for dogs, but whole wheat was more highly recommended by our vet because of its added health benefits. Again, please consult with your vet about any allergies your dog may have.

    Hi Sally.

    This recipe looks amazing and I can’t wait to try and make it – my dog loves homemade treats and they’ve become a real passion of mine!

    This may be a silly question, so I apologise in advance, but just to be clear – when you say that they freeze well for up to 2 months, do you mean the batter/mixture or the actual baked treats? And if it’s the treats, what’s the best way to thaw them?

    Thank you for your help and your wonderful recipes!

    • Sallyreplied on December 1st, 2013 at 1:03 pm

      Hi Sophie – I’m just noticing that I never answered your question. The baked dog treats may be frozen (not the dough). Jude likes them frozen or you can thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

    I made these last week for my dog Tucker and he loved them!! I then made some for my family and friends dogs too. I was wanting to share a picture but couldn’t figure out a way to do that on FB. It was just too adorable seeing how badly Tucker wanted more…and more! Thank You so much for this recipe.

    Also, when the kids came home from school they asked what I was baking and when would it be done?! They were pretty upset when I told them this time it was for the dog :) I love everything I have made from your site and can’t wait to get my cook book :)

    hope to make them for my dogs, but having contaced the vet, I found out that one of them cannot have bacon. I don’t want to make some for one and not give them to the little one.
    any ideas for a bacon substitute?

      You could just leave the bacon out. It won’t make a huge difference! The bacon is just an extra.

    Thank you so much for sharing your recipe for peanut butter bacon doggie treats. I have a little 7lb. yorkie-poo I named Emma. My grown children surprised me with her two years ago on my 66th birthday. My husband had a fit and demanded that I give her back, but after we babysat her over a long weekend, my hubby changed his mind and now I don’t know which of us loves her more. She is our little baby and brings us such joy every day and sleeps with us every night. I cannot wait to make your recipe and give some to Emmadoodles. She is going to go nuts over them, I’m quite sure.

    Sally, Dear, How ever do you find time to reply so quickly to so many comments? I find this amazing that you can do this and still have time to create such wonderful recipes. In your picture you look young and very trim. If I was busy in my kitchen making all those delectable goodies, I would weigh 300 pounds just looking at them! I am not over-weight now, but If I make all your recipes that are screaming at me to make them, I will be obese in no time at all! Oh well, whatever. Let the baking begin!

      My days are basically this: lots of running around, coffee, playing with the pup, lots of yoga, lots of veggies, and a moderate amount of taste testing all the goodies. My neighbors, family, friends, fiancé, and donations get most of the leftover treats. ;) Thanks Ellen!

    Jude and our dog Baxter could be brothers from another mother! Baxter is a chow/shepherd mix, also red, but not quite as big as Jude, and LIVES for peanut butter! We got him from a rescue in Indiana and he is completely and utterly devoted to our family, and puts up with our 20 month old identical triplet boys showering him with “attention” all the time! My daughter wants to give Baxter something special for Christmas and I think these treats are just what he deserves! Thanks for thinking of our four legged friends too…life would not be complete without them!

    Sally, Jude is a very lucky dog. Our Lexi Anne is a peanut butter lover too and if she does not have it at a certain time of the day; she will not finish her food. My husband Ed and I loved this recipe and both enjoyed making these treats for our little puggle….she wouldn’t even get out of the kitchen. Once they cooled down, she had two of them and my husband even made bone cut outs and carved Lexi in them before baking. They turned out perfect. Thank you for sharing your recipe and story. P.S. We used 1% milk instead of nonfat and they still turned out great!

    I ended up heating the peanut butter up in the microwave for 15 sec to soften it before I made the dough – the dough was really easy to handle as a result, and it hasn’t seemed to change the biscuits (so far!).

    I’m not allowed to have a dog in my apartment in San Francisco, so I baked these treats with my 7 year-old daughter and we put them in little carryout containers and shared with all our friends who have pups. They went crazy for them. We just finished baking another batch with heart cookie cutters for Valentine’s. Thanks again for sharing the recipe! Cheers.

    I found your page while searching for doggie treat recipes for my dog Bear to celebrate his 12th birthday today. I really enjoyed reading about your dog Jude especially since our dogs look so much alike. My Bear is Pitt Bull, Rotweiler, Australian Shepherd mix (so I was told). Thanks for the recipes!

    Ingredients:
    6 cups whole wheat flour
    1 1/2 Tbsp baking soda
    1 tbsp ground ginger
    2 tsp cinnamon
    3/4 c applesauce
    3/4 c molasses
    1/2 c honey
    1/4 c vegetable oil
    1 egg, beaten

    Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.Combine all of the ingredients in your mixer with a dough hook. Turn it out onto a floured surface and roll it out to 1/4 inch thick.
    Cut it with cookie cutter or simply with a pizza cutter. Place them on cookie sheets and poke each in the center with a fork.
    Bake for 8 minutes and turn oven off, keeping oven door closed. Let the treats sit in the oven until hard about 1-2 hours.

    Thank you for this recipe! My dog’s birthday is on Valentine’s Day, and we just happened to get her brother the same day last year so it’s a very special day for us (whether they know it or not, haha). I’m going to bake them up some of these for sure!

    I love that you posted pics of your handsome boy, Jude, along with the recipe! He’s lucky to have “found” you.

    I made these treats for our rescue pup, Jetta, for her 3rd birthday this week and she LOVED them. Later I caught her walking along the kitchen counters with her nose up in the air…guess she was looking for more!

    Jetta is a 75 lb. Black Lab/German Shepherd mix (says the vet) or a Black Lab/Rottweiler mix (said the shelter) that we adopted when she was 8 months old. We weren’t looking for a new dog since it had only been 5 weeks since losing our 10 yr. old German Shepherd. But luckily she “found” us one day when we just happened to need bird food and she just happened to be up for adoption at PetSmart!

    Thanks for the great recipes, Sally!!

      Jetta sounds adorable, Cindy! What a beautiful sounding pup. I love black labs so much. She sounds a lot like Jude – with the german shepherd or the Rottweiler in her. She’s very lucky to have found you!

    Today is the second time I have made these for my 2 dogs (Pit/Mastiff and Rott/German Shepard), my Pit actually sniffs the air as they are baking. I do use low fat peanut butter, fat free milk and precooked bacon just because that’s what is in my house. I also just roll in a ball push lightly with a fork to flatten and they look like peanut butter cookies, it just saved the time f trying to roll out and use a cookie cutter this way made approx 40 cookies. Great job with this.

    Hi Sally,

    I have two little ones and I would love to try baking homemade treats for them. I have a question about the bacon. Do I need to cook them first our just cut them up and mix in the dough raw? This sounds so tasty. I’m afraid that they will not eat their regular food after they try this :-)

    Thanks,
    Vanessa

    These were so easy to make! My foster doggy can be a bit choosy about her biscuits – she tends to prefer pure meat as a treat. I’m happy to report she was absolutely CRAZY about these! They’re right up there with lamb sausages as her new favorite treat. Thanks for the recipe!

    PB cookies were a hit with my 3 wonderful dachshunds (Ernie, Edgar & Einstein). Made it for them to celebrate their 3rd birthday. They gobbled them up and keep looking at me for more. Thanks for creating such a yummy treat!

    Hi Sally, thanks for sharing the recipe! I just made my first homemade biscuits for my dog and would love to try this one! One quick question though, how would I know it’s done? The recipe I tried yesterday called for “bake until hardened” and then I think it turned out to be way too hard for my 6 lb. doggie. Thanks!!:))

      Hi Julia – I’m unsure about the other recipe but these are done in about 30 minutes.
