What your dog eats is an extremely overlooked part of your dogs health, in fact more than half of the dog food & treats found in pet stores has mass amounts of preservatives and meat by-products (animal hair, bones, waste, etc). Imagine the effect on our body if we ate fast food everyday? Well that is basically what we’re feeding our dogs on the daily basis.
Now that we as people are looking into better ways of taking care of our bodies with organic non-proccessed foods its time we do the same for our furry loved ones.
Here’s a great recipe we found on Dog Hill Kitchens blog –
Makes ~6 dozen 1″ diameter treats
Visual ingredient list
3 slices of bacon, diced
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
-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 make them beg for it.
