Whether you use dog treats to train your canine friend or just want to give him a delicious snack once in a while, homemade dog treats are a tasty alternative to commercial dog snacks. The next time you want to surprise your pooch with a treat, try giving him a peanut butter snack that is sure to have him begging for more anytime the kitchen fills with the aromas of bacon and peanut butter.

Step 1

Mix together rice flour, rolled oats and crumbled bacon in a large mixing bowl. Stir in peanut butter and chicken broth. Stir in additional flour slowly if the mixture is too sticky; if the dough is too dry, add chicken broth until you can knead the dough easily.

Step 2

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough well for 50 strokes. Roll the dough into a rectangle measuring approximately 1/4-inch thick.

Step 3

Cut the dough into dog biscuit shapes using a bone-shaped cookie cutter, or cut the dough into squares measuring approximately 2 inches across. Lightly grease a cookie sheet with butter and arrange the cut shapes on the cookie sheet, leaving at least 1/2 inch between each treat.

Step 4

Bake the treats at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes, or until they are slightly browned. Transfer the treats to a wire rack using a spatula and let them cool for at least one hour.

Step 5

Store the dog treats in an airtight container for up to one week. Freeze any extra treats for up to six months.
