When it comes to dog Easter biscuits, it doesn’t get much cuter than a sweet lil’ bunny face does it?

Literally, these homemade dog cookies are so adorable you might even feel a little bad feeding them to your pup!

There’s so much to love about these bun-tastic Easter dog biscuits – they’re healthy, easy to make, delicious AND they feature one of our favourite healthy dog treat ingredients – carob!

Maybe it’s because we’re chocoholics, but we are are big fans of carob around here. This dog-safe chocolate alternative is a wonder ingredient with many health benefits for your pup. It looks naughty, but it aint! And boy oh boy do we love that (see our ultimate guide to carob for dogs for everything you need to know).

So if you’ve been on the hunt for an Easter recipe for dog biscuits that’s easy and healthy too, we think you’re going to love this (and your furry taste-tester of course!)

Bunny Face Easter Dog Biscuit Recipe

You Will Need:

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 ½ cups of wholemeal flour (almond or coconut flour if preferred)
  • ½ cup of carob powder
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 ¼ cups of water
  • ¼ cup of olive oil (or coconut oil)
  • ½ cup molasses
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • Yoghurt drops for the icing
UTENSILS

Handy Tips:

  • Almond or coconut flour is a perfectly fine flour substitute.
  • Coconut oil can be used in place of olive oil.
  • If your dough turns too dry and crumbly, add water sparingly to mixture. If your dough is too moist, add flour gradually until a cookie dough consistency is formed.

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  2. Line a flat tray with baking paper.
  3. Get two mixing bowls. Mix all of the dry ingredients in one bowl.
  4. In the second bowl, combine the molasses, honey and olive oil and ¾ cup of water.
  5. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture until well combined. 
  6. Slowly add the remaining ½ cup of water until a smooth cookie dough forms.
  7. Divide the dough in two, wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of 3.5 hours.
  8. Once chilled, roll out the mix to around ¼ inch thickness.
  9. Press your Bunny cookie cutters into the dough.
  10. Place on a flat tray lined with baking paper.
  11. Bake for 15-20 mins depending on your oven.
  12. Place cookies on baking rack to cool.
  13. To decorate, gently melt the yoghurt drops over low heat. Use the melted drops to decorate by dipping the cookies into the mix or decorating the bunny faces by piping on the details.
  14. Store cookies in an air tight container for up to 3 weeks. Cookies can be frozen for up to 3 months. Makes approximately 12 cookies.
