Blueberry Bacon Dog Treat Recipe

When I told a few people around the office that I was making a Blueberry Bacon Dog Treat Recipe, they all asked the same thing – would I mind bringing in a few for them to try? Nope – this tasty treat is part of a well-balanced breakfast for pooches (or at least as all of the ingredients of one)! I don’t know about your dog, but Oscar comes a-running when he hears and smells bacon frying up. But to be fair, so do I! And if you don’t have fresh blueberries, feel free to use the frozen kind, as they work just as well in this recipe.

Blueberries and bacon combine to make a delicious treat no dog can resist!Makes 25 medium-sized dog cookies

Ingredients:

2 cups whole wheat flour

¼ cup flaxseed meal

½ cup oatmeal

1 cup blueberries

2-3 strips bacon, crumbled

½ water or milk (regular or almond)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Fry bacon until desired crispness. Drain and let cool on paper towel before crumbling the strips.
  3. Mash blueberries in a small bowl with fork. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl mix together flour, flaxseed, oatmeal, and bacon. Mix well. Add in mashed blueberries.
  5. Add milk or water slowly in the mixture, stirring until the dough holds together and is stiff.
  6. On a floured or parchment-paper lined surface, roll out the dough to ¼ to ½ thickness. Using cookie cutters, press out shapes and place on cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes or lightly golden. Allow treats to cool completely, and store in air tight bags or containers in refrigerator or in freezer.

If you want, you can poke the treats with a fork before they go into the oven. This helps to eliminate air bubbles in the cookies and keeps them completely flat and hard.
