SunButter and Bacon Dog Biscuits

SunButter and Bacon Dog Biscuits - 8

Right around the time that hubby and I decided to get a puppy, I came across this recipe from Nancy of The Sensitive Pantry…and as a side note, can I just say that Nancy’s blog is such a wonderful resource for gluten-free cooking and baking? I am always sending people her recipes and bookmarking them to make for my gluten-free friends. Anyway, when I saw her recipe for dog biscuits, I just knew I had to make them to welcome home our new furry friend. I changed up the recipe a bit since I’m allergic to peanut butter and so I generally don’t cook or bake with it, but also because I don’t have my pantry stocked with gluten-free flours at the moment (these treats are definitely “gluten-full”). Riley enjoyed them all the same though, and judging by how excited he gets whenever I take them out, I think it’s safe to say that these are his favorite treats!

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours.

In a smaller bowl, combine the SunButter, egg, water, and honey. Stir in the bacon and carrot.

Mix together the dry and wet ingredients until a rough dough is formed.

Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface about 1/4″ thick. Cut out shapes with a cookie cutter.

Place the cookies on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake 30-35 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for about a week.

Finally, I want to add a similar note to the one in Nancy’s post: While it is fun to experiment with ingredients in recipes, it’s important to understand what ingredients can be poisonous to our pets. Please make sure to consult the appropriate sources before changing the ingredients!

  1. Your baby is so cute!! I love the idea of putting bacon in a homemade dog biscuit, although my husband would probably be jealous if I gave bacon to the dog, hee hee!!

  27. Ooo! I love seeing people using a product that is made in my hometown. I’ve been addicted to SunButter ever since I had it years ago. I’m going to have to add this recipe to my rotation of dog treats I make. I haven’t bought any from a store for months after discovering how easy it is to do myself.

    by Katie M on Mar 16, 2011 at 3:10 pm

  28. What a great recipe, I’m adding it to my facebook page right now!

    by Doggy Dessert Chef on Mar 17, 2011 at 3:28 pm

  29. Just prepping the ingredients now! Husband is throwing the bacon on the grill as we speak…I used PB since that’s what I had in the house, and the dog loves it! Can’t wait to see his face when we gets one of these in his mouth!

  30. Your puppy is so sweet and I’ll bet he couldn’t be happier with the treat you made.

    by Cookin' Canuck on Mar 22, 2011 at 11:28 pm

  31. Tracy, Somehow I missed the news about your little furball, but what a total cutie! I have a Golden (he just turned 4) and he looked JUST LIKE yours when he was a puppy! They are the best dogs πŸ™‚

  32. I have made these before and my dog loves them

    by Liana on Aug 28, 2012 at 6:02 pm

  33. I want to try this recipe for my Sadie, but I’m not sure if “SunButter” is just butter or something special? Please let me know.. Thanks Kathy

    by Kathy on Sep 3, 2014 at 6:41 pm

  34. Kathy – SunButter is a spread made from sunflower seeds, similar in texture and taste to peanut butter. Hope that helps!
