Peanut Butter and Bacon Dog Treats

5 from 1 vote
Peanut butter and bacon are combined into one treat and beloved by dogs - and for good reason!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 30 Varies based on size


  • 1 cup peanut butter, make sure it doesn't contain xylitol
  • ¾ cup skim or nonfat milk
  • cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • ¾ tablespoon baking powder
  • 3 strips thick-cut bacon, chopped or crumbled
  • ¼ cup quick oats
  • Assorted cookie cutters


  • Preheat oven to 325° F. Line two (maybe even more!) baking sheets with parchment paper or non-stick silicone baking mats and set them aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix peanut butter, milk, and applesauce. You want the mixture to be smooth at this point, so make sure to break up any lumps.
  • Slowly add flour and baking powder, mixing as you go since the mixture is going to get very thick. If needed, place dough on a prepared surface to full incorporate the flour and baking powder with your hands. Add in the oats and bacon (again, using your hands as needed).
  • Place dough between two pieces of parchment paper and use a rolling pin to roll the dough out to be ¼"-/1/8" thick. Using cookie cutter(s), cut out dough and place on prepared baking sheets. They really won't spread, but they will puff up. Just keep in mind - the thicker the cutouts are, the "puffier" the treats will end up being in the end.
  • Bake for 16 minutes and then flip and bake for another 12-15 minutes. Allow to cool completely and let your pup enjoy!


I recommend storing these at room temperature for up to a couple weeks. You can also throw them in the freezer for longer!
