Cinnamon Honey Donut Dog Treats Recipe


Preheat oven to 175°C. Lightly grease six holes of a regular donut tray (this non-stick donut tray is an Amazon best-seller!)

1. Combine flour and cinnamon in large bowl.

2. Add applesauce, honey and egg to a small bowl and whisk until well combined.

3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix to form a thick batter.

4. Mix in the warm water if the batter is too dry.

5. Fill each donut mould to the top.

6. Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through. To test, insert a toothpick into the donut. If it comes out clean, the donuts are ready and can be removed from the oven. Allow to cool.

7. Melt the yoghurt drops in a small heat safe bowl over boiling water.

8. Dip each donut in the yoghurt. Set aside on a baking rack to set, and serve.
