Homemade dog treats are a great way to go the extra mile for your pampered pup. Make some today with this recipe for bacon dog treats made with puppy-friendly ingredients like pumpkin, eggs and whole wheat flour.


  • 4 slices Giant Eagle sliced bacon
  • 2½ cups King Arthur whole wheat flour
  • 2 large Giant Eagle eggs
  • ½ cup Libby’s® 100% pure pumpkin


  Prep Time: 10 min. • Cook Time: 30 min.

Add bacon to a cold frying pan. Cook on medium until crispy, about 5-7 minutes. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the fat for the bones. Finely chop the bacon.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Whisk together the flour (reserve 2 tablespoons), eggs, pumpkin, bacon fat, and chopped bacon. Add water as needed to help make the dough workable, but the dough should be dry and stiff. Sprinkle the reserved flour on a clean surface and roll the dough into a ½-inch thick roll.

Using a dog bone-shaped cutter, punch out biscuits in the dough. Place on a sheet tray and bake for 25 minutes in the oven. Rotate sheet tray halfway through.

Let cool and remove from tray. Store in airtight container for 2 weeks.
