Makes 12 donuts


Sweet Potato Apple Doggie Donuts

  • ¾ cup whole milk

  • 1 cup plain mashed sweet potato

  • 1 large egg

  • 2 Tbsp honey

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • ¾ cup chopped apples

Peanut Butter Glaze

  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter (natural peanut butter with no added sugar or salt is best for dogs)*

  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil


Sweet Potato Apple Doggie Donuts

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a standard donut pan with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, sweet potato, egg, and honey until combined.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder. Then stir into the wet ingredients until incorporated.

  4. Gently fold in the chopped apples with a rubber spatula.

  5. Fill the cavities of the prepared pan with the batter until ⅔ full. Then evenly spread the batter using an offset spatula.

  6. Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until slightly puffed and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool the donuts in the pan for 5 minutes, then take the donuts out of the pan and allow to cool completely before glazing.

Peanut Butter Glaze

  1. Combine the peanut butter and oil in a small microwave safe bowl. Melt the peanut butter on a low heat setting in a microwave, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted and smooth.

  2. Dip the donuts one at a time into the peanut butter glaze to fully coat the top and sides.

  3. Place the donuts on a wire rack to allow the excess glaze to drip off.

  4. Allow the glaze to set before letting your doggie devour.

*NOTE: Be sure to check your peanut butter for xylitol, which is extremely toxic to dogs.
