GBBO Dog Safe Donut Recipe


The Great British Bake Off is back tonight. From Hollywood handshakes to stunning showstoppers, and soggy bottoms – the nation can’t wait to get baking again – but let’s not forget the dogs. 

Whether they’re glazed, jam-filled, or piping hot at the funfair, we all love doughnuts. These deep-fried treats are best left to the humans – all that saturated fat and sugar (as delicious as it might be) means doughnuts don’t make a very dog-friendly snack.

The good news is: we don’t want our dogs to miss out on all the fun, and that’s where the tails delicious doggy doughnut recipe comes in. These dog-friendly doughnuts will go down a storm with your (very trustworthy) taste testers. Using almond flour, eggs, a little coconut oil, and some xylitol-free peanut butter, this recipe is the perfect afternoon treat!

Recipe below


4 large doughnuts – each doughnut is approximately 250kcal, so we’d recommend cutting them into smaller pieces to keep tummies trim!

What you’ll need

For the doughnuts:

For the icing:

For the decoration:



  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C
  2. Add the flour, egg, coconut oil, and peanut butter to a mixing bowl and stir until combined
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the yoghurt and cornflour until smooth
  4. Lightly grease your baking tray with coconut oil and fill with your mixture
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown
  6. Allow to cool, then remove the doughnuts from the tray
  7. Use your yoghurt icing to top the doughnuts and decorate with your dog’s favourite treats – we used our Hand-baked Duck Treats and Good Dog Treats!

Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 7 days – or freeze and use within 3 months. 

Don’t worry if your dog doesn’t like donuts, you can also try our delicious No Bake treat balls absolutely perfect for City Dogs of all shapes and sizes.
