My fur baby turned three last month! Hudson was such a good boy that I decided to bake him some dog donuts. He loves when I bake him treats because he gets all his favorite ingredients! This time around it was peanut butter and banana.

Why you should make this recipe: If you have a dog then you probably like to spoil him/her! This recipe is made with natural ingredients that not only taste good, but also is good for your pup!

Ingredients for dog donuts

These dog donuts are made with basic ingredients that your pup will love! Disclosure, I’m not a veterinarian or dietician so please consult your dog’s vet before baking homemade treats for them!

A few notes on the ingredients… First off is the peanut butter! Please use natural creamy peanut butter for this recipe (no-stir is best). Check the ingredients and make sure there is no added sugar or palm oil in the peanut butter. Natural is better for your pup! It has healthy fats and vitamins.

Bananas have lots of nutrients and fiber for your pups while coconut oil has healthy fats, but should be consumed in moderation. Avocado oil and canola oil are acceptable substitutes. Honey is also beneficial for dogs. If you give them local honey (in small amounts) it can help with seasonal allergies.

Step by step instructions

  1. Prepare donut batter: Mix together bananas, peanut butter, coconut oil and honey. Add egg and mix until combined. Stir in flour and baking soda.
  2. Bake the donuts: Transfer batter to greased donut tin and bake at 350 F for 15 to 20 minutes. Cool in pan for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. Add frosting: Mix together greek yogurt and peanut butter until smooth. Use a knife to frost donuts and garnish with crushed biscuits.

Don’t have a donut pan? This is the donut pan I own and love it! You can also make these in a mini muffin pan and bake for 12 minutes.
