Treat the furry friend in your life to these wholesome, all-natural dog treats with peanut butter, oats, bacon and carrots!
Someone has been distracting me lately. He’s furry, handsome and full o’ love. His name’s Bob Barker (yep, that’s right) and we absolutely adore him!
We adore him so much that we made him dog treats. Wholesome, all-natural treats that are delicious for even human snacking! I may or may not have had these on my list even before we adopted the guy. Never telling.
It’s been a whirlwind of two weeks, but our beloved Bob has made our happy life in Texas even happier – and slightly more chaotic! We have a whole new set of responsibilities and daily to-do’s but it’s plenty fun to parent a pup. With more responsibilities also comes more laughs! … Especially when watching him bounce around the room chasing after the laser pointer. Ha!
Try these tasty treats for your own pup, or as a gift to someone else’s, and you’re sure to make the day of man’s best friend! Our happy boy’s tail hasn’t stopped wagging since he smelled the aroma of these scrumptious doggie snacks!
Homemade Peanut Butter & Bacon Dog Treats
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 carrot, shredded
- 2-3 pieces cooked bacon, chopped
- 1 cup oat flour or 1 1/2 cups rolled oats, processed until floury
- 1 cup all-purpose or whole wheat flour
- Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, combine peanut butter, honey, egg, water, carrot and bacon and stir until well blended. Add both flours to wet mixture to form dough.
- Roll out dough between two pieces of plastic wrap or lightly floured work surface to 1/4 inch thick.
- Cut out with a dog bone shaped cookie cutter, or your desired shape. Place treats 1 inch apart on a parchment lined baking sheet.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Store in a sealed container or re-sealable plastic bag for up to one week, or freeze.
Awww Mr. Bob Barker is freaking AH-DORABLE!
Aww…how adorable! I know so many people with dogs who love them oh so dearly! I think I`ll bake these for them as treats!
Any dog would be happy to chow down – so cute :)
How great you have Bob, they´re such company! He must be going nuts over these cookies, I know I would.
Those are great, Georgia! I wish I had dogs to make these for!!
I know someone who is getting treats this weekend…. He’ll totally love you for this ;)
Bob Barker is adorable, what a pretty boy! I’m sure he loves his home-made treats. He’ll sit pretty for these real quick!!
I have been wanting to make my pups dog treats for quite awhile. I’ve seen a ton of PB ones but never with bacon! Great idea!
Lucky pup :)
What a cutie, those dog treats look perfect!
Oooh, our lab pup will love these! Thank you, Georgia!
These sound fantastic, Georgia. I’m always looking for an easy dog biscuit recipe and it looks like I have found one! Glad you are enjoying “doggie parenthood”; congratulations!
Hello sweet pup! I can’t wait to try or make these for Margot. It was so good to see you, sweet friend. Here’s to us hanging out again in the NEAR future.
How adorable! I have two little dogs and they would just go crazy for these! I definitely have to try these! :)
I don’t have dogs but this is the cutest idea ever!!
You got a dog! :) That’s great. I wish I could have a dog but I don’t like the thought of one in an apartment. A dog should have a yard. Bob Barker is adorable. And what a lucky dog to get those treats!
I cannot wait to make these for my lab, Bob! Yes we have a Bob too..I do not buy store bought treats so I have to make all of his treats. I cannot wait to try these, I feel pretty sure he is going to love them. Thank you for the recipe. Jamie & Bob
Charlie says hi to Bob and thanks for the recipe and could I please make it now.
(Bob’s a cutie!)
What a cute (and lucky!) puppy :) We are huge animal lovers around here. My Mom used to make our dogs food from scratch so making homemade dog biscuits sounds like a great idea to me! I’m sure my Bruno and Heidi would love them.
Georgia! I have been looking for a doggie treat recipe for awhile now! Our pup Jude loves peanut butter almost as much as I do. He’d go nuts for these!
I’m definitely going to make these! My three dogs say they look yummy!
That’s so nice! Thank you for stopping by and letting me know you had great success with this recipe. Here’s hoping the pups enjoy!
My dog loves these. We had a bake sale at work as part of a fundraiser. I made the dog treats and they were such a hit! People that were dieting, bought these and were still able to participate without going off their diets.
What a fun idea! I love to make homemade treats for my pup, so i’ll have to try these!
I’ve made several different dog treat recipes for our pup, but I’ve never added bacon before! Oh my goodness, he would LOVE these! I am definitely pinning this for when we finish off the last batch of treats! :)
Do you use regular oats or quick oats?
Either are fine; I believe I used quick oats.
like you mentioned…just the scent of them baking was driving him crazy. thank you for sharing a fun, easy, healthy recipe! gizmo loves them :)
Made these as training treats for our new rescue pup. She is a very picky eater and refused several other treats. She LOVES these. I roll them into a rope and cut them small for training. They keep well for this in a training pouch for treats. THANKS SO MUCH!!
