I love baking, but I don’t get to do so unless it’s Ollie’s and Winky’s birthdays. Winky is a February baby. So this year, for Winky’s birthday, I decided to make these Valentine’s Day-themed dog doughnuts. When I made these dog doughnuts last week and posted them on our Instagram stories, we got so many requests for a recipe. So what better day to post the recipe than Valentine’s Day? Pretty pink heart-shaped doughnuts, you say? YES! Please!
Ok, first things first. These aren’t actual doughnuts. They are actually cake-textured and Donut shaped. They are fairly easy to make. And the best part is your dog will absolutely love them!
Dog Doughnuts Recipe
We sourced all our ingredients from our local organic store. They are all dog friendly, healthy, and 100% natural ingredients except for yogurt drops; unfortunately, there’s no other way that I know of to get the glazing effect other than using these store-bought yogurt drops. They are definitely made for dogs. As with anything else, please be careful if your dog is sensitive to food. You can replace most of the ingredients in this recipe and customise it to your needs (refer to notes). We got our doughnut silicon moulds from amazon. They came in a pack of 3 with three different shapes.

|2 large ripe bananas – mashed|
¼ cup 100% smooth peanut butter – no xylitol
¼ cup coconut oil melted (extra to coat the moulds)
1 tablespoon honey (optional)
5 quail eggs at room temperature / 1 chicken egg
1 cup chickpea / Oat flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
|dog yogurt drops 250 g (white) |
1 teaspoon pure beetroot powder
dry rose petals
Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC
Coat the moulds with coconut oil
Mix the wet ingredients for the base in a large bowl
Add flour and baking soda and fold the mixture (do not over-mix it)
Fill the silicon mould halfway (approx 1 tbsp per doughnut), tap to distribute evenly
Bake for 15 min (until toothpick comes out clean) and let it cool down
Melt the yogurt drops in a microwave slowly
(1000 W microwave, 50% power for 5x 30 seconds)
Divide the melted yogurt in half, Mix beetroot powder in other half
Dip the doughnut in white yogurt melt, let it dry and sprinkle pink yogurt drip on top
Add flower petals and raspberry powder to decorate
- You can replace most of the ingredients with other similar ingredients
Banana – I used bananas for the smooth texture. But you can use pumpkin, carrot or sweet potato purée
Flour – I used Chickpea flour to keep the recipe grain-free. But you can replace it with wholemeal flour, Oat flour, coconut flour etc.
Eggs – Eggs are used as a binding agent. We regularly give quail eggs to Ollie and Winky. If your dog doesn’t normally react to Chicken eggs, you can use a chicken egg instead of 5 quail eggs. You can make this recipe egg free as well since bananas act as a binding agent.
- Make sure to use Xylitol-free 100% peanut butter. Xylitol is toxic for your dog
- We use honey to add a little bit of sweetness. But you can completely skip this

I just made the cookies for my puppy’s 1st birthday and it turns out so good! It is sooo tasty for both hoomans and dogs! Thanks Iro for the recipe 🙂
Thank you so much for trying out the recipe and for the lovely comment! So good to hear hoomans and doggos both enjoyed the doughnuts!x
Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! Can I use Greek yoghurt instead of yoghurt drops for the frosting?
Unfortunately, it’s hard to get the exact texture without the sugar in yogurt drops. You can check out our cupcake recipe or the birthday cake recipe for different frosting options. Hope that helps! 🙂
