Homemade Peanut Butter Bacon Dog Treats

by Pet Coupon Savings on October 5, 2013

Ok I’ll admit it, I tried these Homemade Peanut Butter Bacon Dog Treats, I mean come on its peanut butter and bacon, what could it hurt? For the record I didn’t enjoy it, but my dogs did, and literally begged for more.  Dogs seem to love those Beggin’ Strips treats but they have too many mystery ingredients. It feels good knowing that what I am putting in their little furry bodies is much higher quality and fresher than what comes off the supermarket shelves. These treats I consider to be homemade Beggin’ Strips dog treats (except these don’t have “bacon flavor”, they have real bacon in them)! Next time you have leftover bacon from breakfast save it in a baggie in the freezer to make these, ok we never have leftover bacon either, but this is the perfect excuse to make more bacon.

Spray cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray or line with aluminum foil.

Run knife or spatula under dough strips to life from surface, ripple dough so it resembles a ribbon, or a piece of bacon, as you lay it on baking sheet.

peanut butter is my weakness, I’m sure my pup would love some bacon covered in it! :)


Pet Coupon Savings October 6, 2013 at 10:25 AM

Same here! Love me some peanut butter and bacon. :) Thanks for stopping by!

This is so interesting. It seems like something my kids would also like to eat! I may try it and not tell them it is a dog treat.


Pet Coupon Savings October 7, 2013 at 10:43 AM

I wouldn’t recommend it for kids. Mine would probably spit it out. :) They’re perfect for dogs though who don’t need extra seasoning or sugar. Thanks for stopping by Janeane.


Heather Johnson October 7, 2013 at 11:36 AM

Both of my dogs would love these homemade treats!


Pet Coupon Savings October 7, 2013 at 11:38 AM

Let me know if you make them. :) Thanks for stopping by Heather!


Elizabeth October 7, 2013 at 10:58 PM

Your photo made me go awwwww because our family dog looks a lot like your furry friend. I think our little guy would love these treats! Like you, I get worried about the ingredients in most commercial treats, but I tend to buy the all-natural ones instead of making my own. I’ll have to bookmark the recipe to try!

I hope your dog enjoys them Elizabeth. :) Thanks for stopping by!

I’m sorry but recommending Bacon to give to dogs is terrible advice. The amount of salt alone in bacon is horrible for dogs. Not to mention it’s not good for dogs especially small breeds who are susceptible to pancreatitis. You should consider this please.

Hello Samantha,

This is definitely considered a “treat” which means it shouldn’t be something consumed all the time but as a special occasional treat. It is up to the pet owner’s discretion as to whether or not they find bacon to be okay for their dog or not. Also if you look at the amount of bacon in the grand-scheme of the entire recipe it’s quite minimal. This recipe is a great alternative to the Beggin’ Strips treats because unlike Beggin’ Strips you know what ingredients are going into them and not some chemical-laden “bacon flavor”. Thank you for stopping by and sharing your opinion. I appreciate your thoughts. :)


Jenni January 28, 2014 at 12:16 PM

Just made these treats for my 3 month old puppy and she loves them! She was dancing around the kitchen waiting for them to cool. The only comment I had about the recipe was I had to add a little bit more chicken broth then the recipe called for. No big deal just wanted to give a heads up to any one else that tries to make them!


Pet Coupon Savings January 28, 2014 at 2:39 PM

So glad that your puppy enjoyed them Jenni! :) Thanks for letting us know.


Lilly January 30, 2014 at 4:53 AM

What a great recipe!! We recently started making homemade treats for our two “babies” :) We can tell how much they love them, and I have been looking for some different recipes. Thanks for posting!!

Thanks for stopping by Lilly. :)


Michelle March 9, 2014 at 2:56 PM

Hi! I think theses sound wonderful! My mini doxie was diagnosed w/IVDD on Sunday a week ago and I am going to try to sell dog treats on fb to help with some of the costs. We have put out over $1000 already in just one week. I have people willing to buy dog and cat treats. My question to you is about how many treats does this recipe make? Your help with this is greatly appreciated!


Pet Coupon Savings March 10, 2014 at 12:08 AM

I’m sorry to hear about your dog, Michelle. Good for you for being proactive in helping with the costs. As for the number of treats per recipe, it varies depending on how big or thin you cut the strips. It could be 24 decent sized treats, or smaller treats, or 12 large treats. Whatever you think will work best for your needs. :) Thanks for stopping by!

Hi, this recipe sounds amazing! I love that I know exactly what’s in this and that it’s hopefully healthier than store bought treats. I have one question though: Is it harmful to my dogs if I use all purpose flour and old fashioned oats instead of wheat flour and quick oats? Can those two ingredients be substituted at all? Thank you!


Pet Coupon Savings April 7, 2014 at 9:12 AM

Hi Gemi,

You should be able to substitute the two without any problems. :)


Gemi April 1, 2014 at 11:22 AM

Sorry, do you also think it’s a good idea if I add some parsley or mint to add a little breath freshening? Thanks again!


Pet Coupon Savings April 7, 2014 at 9:13 AM

It might change the flavor for them a little but I don’t see why not. :)

Here’s a breath freshening treat you can also make for your dog:


Thanks for stopping by!

I just made these for my pup!! They are in the oven right now!!! Hopefully he loves them.


Pet Coupon Savings June 4, 2014 at 1:14 AM

Let me know how they turned out! :)


Chrissy Bartoli July 21, 2014 at 5:38 PM

I have made four batches in the last week! My three little ones love them! I bag them up and bring them to work and give them to my co-workers and clients with dogs. Every one raves about how the dogs love them. I am a huge hit this week! Thank you for the recipe. This one is a keeper!


Pet Coupon Savings July 21, 2014 at 9:29 PM

That’s great to hear Chrissy! Thank you for sharing. I’m so happy all of the pups are enjoying them. :)


Caitlyn H July 29, 2014 at 3:38 PM

Is there any way to make these without the Peanut Butter? I’m sure my dog would absolutely love these, but he’s allergic to Peanut Butter.


Kate November 4, 2016 at 12:33 PM

Maybe almond or another nut butter? Its easy to make…throw a couple of cups of blanched, skinless almonds into the most powerful food processor you have..and let it go and go….and go! It will grind up the nuts…stop n stir as needed. It takes my processor ( a plain Hamilton Beach processor) about five minutes before it finally turns into a very thick butter consistency…yours might take longer. I’ve heard some say their processor got hot..if so, turn it off for a few minutes, then go again! I don’t add salt or sugar, but its perfectly ok if you want to :) Good luck!


Kristy October 24, 2014 at 10:44 PM

Peanut butter and bacon are a magical combination if you ask my dogs! I’ll be trying these out soon. Thanks for the recipe.


Pet Coupon Savings October 29, 2014 at 9:58 AM

Yes they are! Let us know how they turn out. :)


Savannah @ RudysBrog April 8, 2015 at 10:07 AM

We just made these, literally I just pulled them out of the oven. My Rudy LOVES these!! And he is NOT a non-human treat kind of dog. We will share our experience with these on Sunday!! Thank you!


Pet Coupon Savings September 2, 2015 at 10:30 AM

Thanks, Savannah!


Ginny Bennett July 23, 2015 at 9:45 AM

Can I use while flour instead of whole wheat


Kate November 4, 2016 at 12:43 PM

Hello…thanks for the recipe and tips! My fussy (ok UBER fussy) poodle has had a beggin strip most every day for over six years, and loves them! Like you, I’m trying to get away from so much processing and foreign ingredients..and I’m really hoping he’ll eat these! Mr Fussy turns his nose up at hot dogs, lol first time I’ve ever heard that one! He really is high strung, and has seizures occasionally and hot spots …so I’m working hard to stop them (without the steroids the vet wants). Bless his heart, he can’t possibly be very happy and the frustration is killin me! Thanks again for this…I’ll let you know how it works for le pooch!

Wonderful recipe. My dogs love it. If you’re more interested in function over form I put parchment paper over my baking sheet, add the dough and roll and cut it there. They may not look as pretty but it saves some time and the pups still love them.
