This recipe will make a very heavy dough. If you find the dough is crumbly, knead in a little more water.

Creamy peanut butter rather than crunchy will make the biscuits easier to cut.

Adjust the baking time to your pet’s preference. An older dog may want a little softer biscuit, so try cutting the final hour of cooking time in half.

Dog Lovin’ Homemade Dog Treats Recipe ingredients

Ingredients:

1 egg
1/4 cup olive oil (or a combination of bacon grease and oil)
1/2 cup peanut butter (MAKE SURE IT DOESN’T CONTAIN XYLITOL!)
1 cup applesauce
4 pieces of bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 tablespoons water
1/2 cup flaxseed meal
3 cups rye flour (may substitute whole wheat)

How to make these easy Dog Lovin’ Dog Treats:

Heat oven to 350

In stand mixer or by hand, combine egg, oil, peanut butter, applesauce, bacon, and water. Mix until well combined.

Add flaxseed meal and 2 cups of flour, stirring well.

Add the remaining cup of flour slowly. It will be hard to mix, and you may need to put the dough on a floured surface and knead the remaining flour in.

Dough should be heavy and slightly sticky. If necessary, add more flour or water until it’s easy to work with.

Roll out on floured surface to desired thickness…between 1/4-inch and 1/3-inch, depending on the size and age of your dog.
