Whether they’re glazed, jam-filled, or piping hot at the funfair, we all love doughnuts. These deep-fried treats are best left to the humans – all that saturated fat and sugar (as delicious as it might be) means doughnuts don’t make a very dog-friendly snack.
The good news is: we don’t want our dogs to miss out on all the fun, and that’s where our delicious doggy doughnut recipe comes in. These dog-friendly doughnuts went down a storm with our (very trustworthy) taste testers. Using almond flour, eggs, a little coconut oil, and some xylitol-free peanut butter, this recipe is the perfect afternoon treat!
4 large doughnuts – each doughnut is approximately 250kcal, so we’d recommend cutting them into smaller pieces to keep tummies trim!
What you’ll need
For the doughnuts:
- 135g almond flour (you could also use coconut flour or wholemeal flour if your dog tolerates wheat)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1 heaped tsp xylitol-free peanut butter
For the icing:
- 2 tbsp coconut yoghurt (goat milk yoghurt or kefir is also fine)
- 1 tsp cornflour
For the decoration:
- Their favourite treats!
- Non-stick doughnut baking tray
- Preheat your oven to 180°C
- Add the flour, egg, coconut oil, and peanut butter to a mixing bowl and stir until combined
- In a separate bowl, mix together the yoghurt and cornflour until smooth
- Lightly grease your baking tray with coconut oil and fill with your mixture
- Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown
- Allow to cool, then remove the doughnuts from the tray
- Use your yoghurt icing to top the doughnuts and decorate with your dog’s favourite treats – we used our Hand-baked Duck Treats and Good Dog Treats!
Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 7 days – or freeze and use within 3 months.
