Our pumpkin dog treat donuts are easy to make at home. Unlike human doughnuts, which can be a time consuming delicacy, these are quick and simple to make at home. Use a mini donut pan to bake up a batch of these sweet cinnamon delights.
Don't judge a book by it's cover, just because this dog treat recipe is called a "Donut" does not mean it is unhealthy. Quite the contrary, it has omega 3 rich ground flax seeds as a main ingredient.
But that isn't our shining ingredient here, the sweet pumpkin is our star. Pure pumpkin, like what you find in a can every fall, is high in Vitamin A and full of healthy fiber. All of this, plus it is very low in calories, perfect for a healthy donut.
No matter how healthy something is for your dog, it won't do much good if she turns up her nose. That's why we've added a heaping helping of cinnamon to these pumpkin dog treat donuts to tempt your little one. And if that's not enough, how about a milk and honey glaze. Besides, it's not much of doughnut without a little sweetness on top.
Our pumpkin dog treat donut glaze isn't like other sweet glazes that use powdered sugar. We've made up a batch with tapioca flour, also called tapioca starch, to create a drizzle that dries hard. Make your donuts ahead of time and drizzle before serving for best results.
Glaze Ingredients: (Optional)
Storing - Baked doughnuts, like these pumpkin dog treat donuts, will be good in the refrigerator for about one month. Keep them fresh in the freezer for up to 6 months.
Yield - Using a mini donut pan, you'll have 3 dozen little pumpkin doughnuts.
Warm cinnamon and pumpkin dog treat donuts make a sweet smell. Reward your sweetie with a batch of glazed or plain doughnuts that will satisfy a sweet tooth, and be healthy, too.
