Ingredients:

Nutty Bacon Dog Treats.jpg
  •  3 slices of bacon, diced
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup creamy natural peanut butter (or Sunbutter)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (bacon + maple seemed like a good idea)
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup soy flour
  • 1/2 whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Fry the diced bacon until crispy.  With a slotted spoon, remove the crispy bacon but save the fat.  Allow the fat to cool slightly (2-5 minutes)
  • Add the egg, peanut butter, maple syrup and water to the bacon fat and mix thoroughly.
  • Add in the flours and wheat germ and mix until combined. Stir in the crispy bacon pieces.
  • Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to about 1/4" thick. Cut into desired shapes. I used three different 1" cookie cutters.
  • Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes (for 1" diameter shapes) until lightly browned.
  • Cool and serve.

Makes 6 dozen - 1" diameter treat
