Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Peanut Butter Dog Treats with bacon. Easy, healthy homemade recipe for your furry friend.
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Keyword: homemade dog treats, peanut butter dog treats


  • Optional: any shape cookie cutters. They can also be just cut into squares.


  • 1 cup pure pumpkin not pumpkin pie filling
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup packaged real bacon bits


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees then combine the pumpkin, peanut butter, egg and applesauce in a bowl. Fold in the baking soda and flour stirring until combined. The dough will be thick. I used my hands to finish combining it. 
  • When the flour is completely blended add the bacon bits again folding with your hands until they're mixed in.
  • Roll the dough out onto a lightly floured surface about ¼” thick then cut into shapes using a cookie cutter. You can use any shape at all - or just cut into squares.!
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper then transfer the treats to the baking sheet. They don’t need much room between because they’ll puff but won’t spread out. 
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes, remove from the oven and cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes then transfer to a wire cooling rack. Make sure the treats are completely cool before offering to your furry friend.
