Peanut Butter Bacon Dog Treats
These homemade dog treats are filled with savory peanut butter, bacon, oats, and other all-natural ingredients. Your dog will love them and you’ll love treating your pet!
These dog treats are full of delicious, all-natural peanut butter, oats, and bacon. Even Mark and I had to take a bite! (Though I have to say, they’re way more enjoyable for doggies) Beyond that, they’re very easy to make and it’s fun to create little shapes and sizes! I actually love using these dog treat molds that I used for my strawberry banana dog treat recipe.
We all love our pups, and it’s so nice to be able to do something special for them : ) Even if you don’t have a pup of your own, I’m sure you know someone who does- and these make great gifts! With the quantity that you end up with in the end, it’s much more cost-savvy to make them at home, and this way they’re all natural and made with love. 😉
Best kind of Peanut Butter for dogs:
All-natural peanut butter without added salt or sugar is best. Do not use lite or sugar-free peanut butter, as those may have artificial sweeteners (such as xylitol) which is toxic to dogs.

Your four legged friend will love you for this! These treats are filled with savory peanut butter, bacon, oats, and other all-natural ingredients.
- 1 cup natural creamy peanut butter*
- 3/4 cup nonfat milk
- 1 large egg or 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 cups whole wheat flour. Unbleached all-purpose flour is also safe for dogs
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 1/3 cup oats (either whole-rolled or quick oats are fine)
- 4 strips cooked bacon roughly chopped
- 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 or insert into these dog treat molds (I love these)! 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.
