Your dog will love these homemade bacon dog treats. This is a simple recipe that doesn’t require a lot of ingredients, is quick to put together, and doesn’t require a lot of baking time.

Just ask my dog hunter who thought he could get to them before they made it to the cookie jar.

Recipe type: Dog Treats
Serves: 50 depending on size
  • 2 slices bacon
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Cook bacon until crisp, crumble, and reserve the bacon fat.
  3. Using an electric mixed fitted with paddle attachment mix together the eggs, pumpkin, and bacon fat until well combined. On low speed mix in the oats a little at a time until well combined. Gradually add 2 ½ cups flour and continue mixing until just incorporated. Add additional flour a little at a time until dough is no longer sticky; add the bacon and continue mixing until bacon is folded in.
  4. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and need by hand to form a ball of dough; roll out to about ¼ thickness, and cut dog treats with a cookie cutter.
  5. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until edges start to brown.
  6. Let cool and store in zip lock bag; use as needed.
  7. I don't know if its necessary but I refrigerate these.
