underdog donuts









Oh, Duke!  You're so silly.  Of course they were meant for you, and you alone.  All these little cakes around here have made you crazy and we didn't give you a single one... and you didn't even try to steal one!

So here is a nice plate of doggie donuts, just for you:

2 cups whole wheat flour
2/3 cup beef broth
1 egg, beaten
3 tablespoons uncooked oatmeal, ground up 
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Preheat oven to 400°F

Mix flour, egg and broth well in a large bowl. Add oatmeal and garlic powder. Mix until ingredients are evenly distributed. Roll dough to 1/2" thick on a lightly floured surface.

Cut the dough with a donut shaped cookie cutter or use one large and one small circular cookie cutters to create the donut shapes. Carefully place each donut on a lightly greased or non-stick cookie sheet.  Transfer to a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake 10-15 minutes. Watch to avoid burning. Remove donuts from oven to harden, or turn off oven and leave donuts in oven to harden. If you choose,  allow the donuts to harden in the oven.


For doggie donut icing, melt white chocolate, yogurt chips or carob chips over a double boiler with a tiny splash of vegetable oil.  When your cookies are completely cool, spread them with the "icing" and add sprinkles.  Honestly, a few sprinkles won't hurt your furry friend.  He eats garbage when you're not looking.

Lizzie and Javier made catnip tea for our kitties last week. We laughed ourselves silly watching the cats wander around all doped up. You are such a good doggy mommy. Duke's so lucky.

Love the donuts!!!What a great idea...We make people shaped biscuits at our house, and at christmas we do trees and angels. Never thought of adding the icing...our dogs will love it! I also save up on beef or bacon fat and add that in.
Thanks for sharing!

Jill said...

LOL! Love the "Get closer but act casual. Don't make eye contact." It's like the dog is picking up on the donuts! ;)

Kate said...

Oh I have spent looooong hours making doggie treats like these! But yours are prettier! kkad3@sasktel.net

How fun! And Duke is adorable!

Christine said...

Wow I wish I had a dog to give these to! We only have a cat and she's overweight so we don't give her treats all that much :P

Poor Josh and Heidi...they will never have doggy donuts made from scratch due to baking impaired owners.

I've made lots of trips for Dash ... and now I have something new to make ... Thanks for sharing. Dash's Oma doesn't make him treats, but she sends him birthday cards with $10 tucked in, as well as a package doggie treats for his birthday, Christmas. Easter, Valentine's Day.

Great post! Duke is becoming quite the blog-lebrity or is it dog-lebrity? Either way he is one lucky dog!

It really was dog donuts ?! I totally thought it was just normal donuts ! Well if I had a dog (which my mom won't let me) I would have tried this recipe for sure! But I don't think I'll try them for me...lol

My family would kill me if they caught me baking treats for the dog since I don't bake treats for them.

Whew! What a relief! Those donuts looked too healthy, even for someone as fanatical about hiding fiber as you! I was worried when I noticed the ingredient list and relieved to discover they were for Duke! This is one recipe I don't need to use!
