Here’s how to make these delicious banana dog donuts that your pup will love!


  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup Peanut butter plus more for drizzling
  • 1 banana
  • 1 egg

Step-By-Step Instructions

Step 1 – Preheat The Oven


Start by preheating the oven to 350° F.

You want the oven nice and hot so that the donut batter begins to cook as soon as you place the trays in the oven.

Step 2 – Prepare The Donut Tins

tin and ingredients

Take two 6-cup donut tins, and rinse them to remove any dust.

Dry the tins thoroughly.

You don’t want the donuts to stick to the tins as they bake, so grease each cup thoroughly with a little melted coconut oil.

Set the prepared tins on one side until you need them later.

Step 3 –  Combine The Wet Ingredients

In a large mixing bowl, combine the honey, melted coconut oil, peanut butter, and mashed bananas.

Add the egg and mix everything together thoroughly.

Step 4 –  Add The Remaining Ingredients

Now, stir in the baking soda and flour until everything is combined.

Step 5 –  Put The Batter In The Donut Tins

Add equal quantities of batter to each cup of the donut tins. Be careful not to overfill the tins or the batter might overflow into the oven and make a horrible mess!

Step 6 – Bake!

Put the loaded donut tins into the hot oven and bake at 350° F for between 15 to 20 minutes.

To make sure that the donuts are cooked, slide a clean toothpick into one of the donuts. If the toothpick comes out clean, the donuts are cooked.

Step 7 – Remove The Donuts From The Baking Trays

Allow the donuts to cool for a few minutes in the baking trays. Once the donuts are cool enough to handle, remove them from the baking trays and set them on a wire rack to cool.

Step 8 – Make The Frosting

Now, make the frosting for the donuts.

In a large mixing bowl, combine peanut butter and Greek yogurt until smooth and creamy.

Step 9 – Decorate The Donuts
