Disney Doggy Donuts
1 cup whole wheat flour (plus some additional for dusting)
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup mashed ripe banana (about 1 small banana)
1/3 cup natural creamy peanut butter
2 eggs, divided
1/4 cup water
2 strawberries, washed and hulled
6 ounces plain nonfat Greek yogurt
Pup-Peroni Lean Beef Flavor Dog Treats, finely chopped (optional)
Large sheet pan
Medium and small bowls
2-inch biscuit or cookie cutter
1-inch biscuit or cookie cutter
1Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover a large sheet pan with parchment paper. Combine the flour, oats and baking powder in a medium bowl.
2In a separate bowl, combine the banana, peanut butter, one of the eggs and water. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until well combined.
3Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and roll to a 1/4-inch thickness. Using a 2-inch biscuit cutter, cut out 16 circles. Cut out the center of each circle with a 1-inch biscuit cutter. Cut out an additional 16 (1-inch) circles out of the rolled-out scraps.
4Place the 2-inch circles on the prepared sheet pan. Beat the remaining egg in a small bowl. Brush the edge of two of the 1-inch dough circles with the egg wash and press them onto the top of one of the 2-inch circles to form ears. Repeat with remaining 1-inch circles.
5Bake until the dough is set and lightly browned, 9-11 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely.
6For the frosting, mash the strawberries in a bowl with a fork. Add the yogurt and mix well.
7Dip the front of each cooled donut into the frosting to coat. Spread with a small spatula or butter knife if necessary.
8Optional: While the strawberry frosting is still wet, finely chop the Pup-Peroni Lean Beef Flavor Dog Treats and add these tasty “sprinkles” to the frosting. Then, cut out two triangles and a small square from Beggin' Strips Bacon & Beef Flavor Dog Treats for each donut. Place the shapes onto the wet frosting for a Minnie Mouse-inspired bow.
Allow frosting to dry completely at room temperature before serving.
