Peanut Butter Bacon Bites Dog Treat Recipe
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Cook Time: 30 minutes
- Total Time: 35 minutes
- Yield: 2 Trays of cookies 1x
- Category: Snackinses
- 3 cups oat flour (blitz rolled oats in your food processor to make your own)
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup natural peanut butter (beware of xylitol, a sweetener dangerous to dogs)
- 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 cup cooked and crumbled bacon
- Food Processor
- 2 Parchment-Lined Baking Sheets
- Rolling Pin
Preheat oven to 350º and adjust the racks so you can easily manipulate two baking trays.
- Blitz four cups of oats in the food processor until you get a nice flour consistency. Remove the oat flour to a large bowl and set aside.
- Place bacon in food processor and blitz to crumble.
- Add the peanut butter, applesauce, and eggs into the bowl of the food processor. Pulse lightly to combine.
- Add the flour to the wet mixture by the cupful, pulsing to incorporate. The dough should set at three cups, leaving you 1 cup extra flour for rolling out.
Turn dough onto a lightly floured board to roll in two batches.
Roll out your dough, adding flour as necessary. Cut out your cookies using your favorite small cookie cutters.
Bake for 30 minutes, rotating and swapping the trays halfway through. Remove when just golden.
Let the treats cool inside the oven for a crispier cookie.
Tilt-tastically delicious, says Bea.
