These homemade Easter biscuits for dogs are so cute, you’ll feel a little bad feeding them to your pup like we did (disclaimer: no bunnies were harmed in the making of this recipe!)
Healthy, easy to make and delicious, these bun-tastic Easter dog biscuits feature our favorite dog-friendly ingredient: carob.
Maybe it’s because we’re chocoholics, but we are big fans of carob here at Pretty Fluffy.
This tasty dog-safe chocolate alternative is a wonder ingredient with many health benefits for your pup (carob is high in vitamins, calcium, magnesium, and iron – just to name a few!)
When it comes to fun and healthy dog biscuit recipes for Easter, you and your pup needn’t look further.
Let’s hop to the recipe!
DIY Easter Dog Biscuit Recipe
- 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
- Cookie tray
- Mixing bowls
- Wooden spoon
- Cookie cutters*
*Unfortunately the cookie cutters pictured are no longer available, so we hopped over to Amazon where we found a range of bunny ear cookie cutters perfect for this recipe!
- Preheat oven to 180°C / 350°F.
- Line a flat tray with baking paper.
- Mix all of the dry ingredients in one bowl.
- In a second bowl, combine the molasses, honey and olive oil and ¾ cup of water.
- Fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture until well combined.
- Slowly add the remaining ½ cup of water until a smooth cookie dough forms.
- Divide the dough in two, wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of 3.5 hours.
- Once chilled, roll out the mix to around ¼ inch thickness.
- Press your Bunny cookie cutters into the dough.
- Place on a flat tray lined with baking paper.
- Bake for 15-20 mins depending on your oven.
- Place cookies on baking rack to cool.
- 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.
- Store cookies in an air tight container for up to 3 weeks. Cookies can be frozen for up to 3 months. Makes approximately 12 dog Easter biscuits.
- 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.
