Doggie Donuts Recipe

Last Update: September 28, 2022

Ruff day? If your four-legged friends could use a treat, they’ll roll over for canine-approved donuts! (Test donuts were eagerly devoured by dogs at Thrive HQ.) The batter whizzes up in the food processor and mixes I and Love and You dog food with peanut butter, pumpkin, and almond flour. For the frosting, just stir together two ingredients—Greek-style yogurt and coconut oil—to finish it off.

Doggie Donuts

Yield: 12 mini donuts or 8 large donuts
Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes


For the donuts
½ cup I and Love and You Lamb and Bison Dog Kibble
3 tablespoons peanut butter
2 large eggs
1 cup pumpkin purée
1 cup almond flour
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted, plus more for greasing pan

For the frosting
¼ cup Greek-style yogurt
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted


Make the donuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a donut mold with the melted coconut oil.

Add dog food to a food processor and pulse until smooth. Add peanut butter, eggs, pumpkin, almond flour, and coconut oil; purée until well combined. Divide batter evenly between greased donut molds and tap on the counter to level batter. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden. Remove donuts from pan and cool on a wire rack.

Make the frosting
Whisk yogurt and coconut oil in a shallow bowl. Invert donut and twist to coat. Turn right side up and refrigerate on a sheet tray until set. Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 10 days, or freeze.
