Happy First Birthday Oakley Girl
Happy 1st Birthday Oakley Girl
Celebrating another year of your pups life I think is so important! I want Oakley to live forever! She’s been the funnest (I know that is not a proper word ha) addition to our little family, our first year of marriage. We seriously love her so much! I am totally one of those crazy dog moms that over spoils her and lets her sleep in my bed! (Preston didn’t like that too much at first, but now he accepts it!)
I wanted to give Oakley more than just her usual treats that she gets everyday, I found this amazing doggie doughnut recipe from one of my favorite books, A Cozy Kitchen. They were so simple to make and actually smelled wonderful.
Oakley seriously loved them! She sat next to me the whole time I was making them. She is obsessed with peanut butter and these definitely have a lot in them! She would not leave my side until everything was done! After I gave her, her first one she kept begging for more and trying to eat them off the plate! I was too afraid to try them, but at least I knew she LOVED them. A perfect treat for your pups! I’ll share the recipe down below!
Grain – Free Doggie Doughnuts
- 2 cups Chickpea flour (I also tried coconut flour and that works too)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup natural peanut creamy peanut butter (stir to incorporate any oil on top)
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil (if using coconut flour, use 4 tablespoons)
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup water (if using coconut flour, use 1 cup)
- 1 cup shredded apples (about 2 apples, peeled is best)
- Preheat the oven to 325 F. Coat a doughnut pan liberally with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda. Add the peanut butter, honey, oil, eggs, and water. Mix until completely combined, and then fold in the shredded apples.
- Divide half the dough among the 6 cavities in the doughnut pan. Transfer to the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the doughnuts are lightly golden brown and spring back when touched.
- To remove from the pan, run a butter knife along the inside and outside edges of the doughnuts. Place a wire rack on top of the doughnuts and flip it over, inverting the doughnuts. Repeat the process of spraying the pan, filling it up with the remaining batter, and baking it. Doughnuts will keep for 3 to 5 days when stored in a airtight container at room temperature.
