Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 cup natural creamy peanut butter*
cup (180ml) nonfat milk
1 large egg (or cup unsweetened applesauce)
2 cups (244g) whole wheat flour* (Unbleached all-purpose flour is also safe for dogs)
1 Tablespoon baking powder
⅓ cup (30g) oats (either whole-rolled or quick oats are fine)
4 strips cooked bacon, roughly chopped

Directions:
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 325F (163C). Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, gently mix the peanut butter, milk, and egg together with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Add the flour and baking powder. You may need to turn the dough out onto a floured work surface and use your hands to work in the flour. Mix in the oats and bacon. The dough is extremely thick and heavy.
3. Using a floured rolling pin, cut into shapes using cookie cutters or a knife. Arrange on the baking sheets. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until very lightly browned on the bottom. Remove from the oven, and flip the treats to bake the other side for 10-12 more minutes.
4. Allow to cool completely before serving to your pup. Store at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Make ahead/freezing: Since the pups can't eat the whole batch in a week, I usually freeze them. Charlie loves them right out of the freezer too! The treats freeze well up to 2 months.

Recipe Notes:
*All-natural peanut butter without added salt or sugar is best. Do not use lite or sugar-free peanut butter, as those may have artificial sweeteners (such as xylitol) which is TOXIC to dogs.

Personal Notes:
Okay, even sneaky little Charlie loves this special treat! And to those of you who know Charlie, that's saying something!
