Pumpkin Oat Bacon Dog Treats   pumpkin oat bacon dog treats

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup plain applesauce
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup quick oats (regular oats are fine)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped cooked bacon
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups all purpose flour

Step One: Preheat the oven to 350 F degrees. Whisk together the eggs, applesauce, and canola oil. Whisk in the pumpkin puree.

Step Two: Stir in the oats and chopped bacon. Stir in both the white whole wheat flour and all purpose flour, a little at a time. Continue to stir until a dough forms.

Step three: Flour the counter and roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out dog treat shapes and place on a non-stick baking sheet. Bake treats in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Allow treats to cool completely, before giving to your dogs.

The treats should become nice and crunchy when fully cooled. I let the treats sit out (uncovered) overnight before storing in a container.

All purpose flour can be used in place of white whole wheat flour.

Be sure to use 100% pumpkin puree – not pumpkin pie filling (pumpkin pie filling contains spices and sugar that could upset a dogs tummy)

Get in the kitchen and bake up some memories!

    Winston & Peaches approved! I subbed the applesauce for a baby food with apples and veggies. They enjoyed! (Winston was one of your ‘pets of the week’ years ago… Hes enjoyed your treats several times now!)

      Hi Kelsey!
      I’m so glad that Winston and Peaches approved the treats! Using baby food in place of applesauce is a great idea!

      Thank you for commenting and letting me know how much your dogs like the treats!

      Sending that handsome boy, Winston, a hug! :-)
