This is one of my favorite dog treat recipes for my dog. Murphy loves them and I am sure your dog will too! These are easy to make with simple and healthy ingredients. I like to use a bone or heart shaped cookie cutter. These also make great gifts for all your doggy friends.
Bacon Peanut Butter Dog Treats
4 pieces bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/8 cup bacon grease
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup ground flax
1/4 cup wheat germ
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 325. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, flax, wheat germ, baking powder. Stir in crumbled bacon.
Put peanut butter in a small microwave safe bowl and microwave just until warm, about 20 - 30 seconds.
In a medium bowl, lightly beat egg. Add in peanut butter, bacon grease, and water. Whisk together until combined.
Make a well in the dry ingredients, pour in the wet ingredients. Stir until combined. Knead lightly in the bowl with your hands.
Lightly flour your work surface. Roll out dough to about 1/2 inch thickness. Cut out with cookie cutters or with the rim of a drinking glass.
Place on prepared baking sheets. Bake at 325 for 15 minutes. Shut off oven and let treats stay in oven for at least 2 more hours, or overnight.
These will stay fresh in the fridge (in airtight container) for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 6 months.
