Who said donuts are just for humans? These homemade dog donuts are the perfect morning snack for your pup.
If your dog loves peanut butter and treats (we’re thinking that is all dogs), then they will devour these peanut butter dog treats.
These homemade dog donuts are made with all natural ingredients, safe for dogs and humans.
We prefer to use natural peanut butter – it is free of salt or added sugar. Furthermore, the whole-wheat flour used is better on our dog’s digestive system than unbleached white flour.
The homemade dog treats even include using carob for the icing.
Because chocolate is dangerous for dogs, carob is a natural alternative and comes from the pod of a carob tree. The pulp is what is turned into powder or chocolate-like chips.
It looks very similar to a cocoa powder but has a more roasted, naturally sweet flavor. The best part for your dog is that carob is high in fiber which helps with colon health and weight management.
You can make these peanut butter dog treats into whatever shape you’d like. Just roll out the dough and cut into squares. We just enjoy making them into donuts!
Smaller sized cut outs may not take as much time to cook. So, keep that in mind when baking and check them more frequently.
Always a hit with our dogs, we have now made these dog donuts a few times. Plus, we are cheesy and enjoy eating breakfast with our dogs – so these dog donuts are an excuse for us to eat our version of donuts for breakfast.
In addition to the homemade dog donuts, we have made other homemade peanut butter dog treats and our dog was happy to sit, shake, and roll-over for them!
We first found this recipe on The Worktop and modified a few things to make it work better for our dog!
