The Best Things About Dog Donuts
Have you ever been enjoying a donut, only to have your four-legged friend beg with those sad little eyes? When you have a batch of these doggie donuts on hand, you can give your dog their own treat made just for them.
Not only does giving your pet a dog donut make it feel like they are sharing treat time with you, but they are actually good for your pup too. This peanut butter banana dog donut recipe has rolled oats, whole wheat flour, eggs, and coconut oil – all of which are fantastic for your pet’s health.
Benefits of Rolled Oats
Oats contain vitamin B which helps your dog maintain a healthy coat. It’s also a good source of omega-6 fatty acids that help keep a dog’s skin strong and healthy.
The soluble fiber in rolled oats helps dogs regulate their blood glucose levels. The fiber also helps dogs if they are having irregular bowel movements – it will keep them regular for sure!
Benefits of Bananas
A banana is another ingredient in this dog treat recipe. They are really high in potassium, which fortifies their muscles and is great for their heart health.
They also make the donuts taste a little sweet without increasing the calorie amounts too much. Plus, they have plenty of fiber in them too.
Doggie Donuts Recipe Ingredients
The entire list of ingredients and the step-by-step directions are in the printable recipe card at the bottom of this article. First, I want to share some additional information about the ingredients I used in this doggie donuts recipe.
Here’s a list of what you need. You must use organic ingredients if you want to make organic dog donuts.
- Whole Wheat Flour – Whole grains are a great source of essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber.
- Rolled Oats – Another great source of fiber and essential vitamins.
- Peanut Butter – The main flavor of these donuts and something most dogs love.
- Banana – Make sure the banana is very ripe since you will be mixing it into the batter.
- Coconut Oil – This is a healthy fat for the doggie donuts. You can use avocado oil if you don’t have coconut oil.
- Eggs – Any size egg will work perfectly in this recipe.
If you want iced and decorated dog donuts, you’ll need:
- Peanut Butter – Natural creamy peanut butter is the best choice. If your pup is allergic to peanuts, use any type of nut or seed butter – like sun butter.
- Dog Treats or Biscuits – Small ones are best for a topping.
- Bacon – Fry some bacon until crispy then break or cut it into small pieces.
Important Note About Peanut Butter
Do not use peanut butter that contains xylitol. It is a sweetener that is toxic to dogs. It is best to use natural unsweetened peanut butter.
How many homemade dog donuts should you give your dog at once? One is plenty. Definitely a portion of one for smaller dogs. These donuts are large so be mindful of how much you give to your dog.
Dogs shouldn’t overeat. They should not consume too many calories or carbohydrates. It is important to keep dogs at a healthy weight. For this reason, I suggest giving your spoiled hound only one per day.
You probably have most of the kitchen items you need to make doggy donuts. But just in case, here’s a list of them:
- Measuring Cups
- Mixing Bowls
- Mixing Spoon
- Donut Pan
- Wire Cooling Rack
How to Make Peanut Butter Dog Donuts

How to Store Peanut Butter Dog Donuts
Store the donuts in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. You can store them in the freezer for up to 6 months.
Can humans eat peanut butter dog donuts?
Oh yes, they sure can! All the ingredients in these donuts for dogs are safe for human consumption. But folks probably won’t like them because they are not sweet like doughnuts made for people. I suggest making some glazed peanut butter donuts for people.

Thank you. I can’t wait to make these for my pup. I’m sure she will love them.
Can you substitute a donut pan for an alternative such as a muffin pan?
You could use a muffin pan, just only fill each cup halfway or they will be too thick and won’t be done in the middle.
Wow! These look like a delicious treat that my dog, Henry love! And they seem pretty easy as well to make. My kind of homemade dog treat. I’ll definitely be giving these a try.
I’m sharing them with my dog friends. 😊💖🐶
Don’t have a donut baking tray so put spoonfulls into a mini cupcake tray. Next time will simply roll into balls and press into the cupcake holes to prevent laminating layers coming apart after cooking. They were fairly dry and crumbly but the dogs loved them. Put carob choc drops on top while cooling out of the oven and they melted nicely, then popped a white dog choc drop on top of melted carob choc. Dogs LOVED the topping best, but polished off the treat very happily.
