Easter Treats For Your Pup


We are always on the lookout for fun and healthy dog treats, especially the kind that you can make yourself.

With any holiday or celebration, we always want to include our fur babies in the festivities. There are many ways that they can be included, and food is one. Since "our" food is not always the best choice for our pets, making them their own special meal is a great option.

Check out some of these fun goodies we found!

easter loaf

Woof Loaf for dogs and cats


1 pound lean ground turkey
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup peas
1/2 cup oats
2 eggs
3 hard-boiled eggs


  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. In a bowl, mix together turkey, chopped carrots, and peas.
  • Add the oats and eggs. Mix until the loaf mixture comes together. Lightly grease a loaf pan with olive oil and then add half the mixture to the pan.
  • Place the three hard-boiled eggs along the center of the loaf and then cover with the other half of the ground turkey mixture. Pop in the oven and bake for 45 minutes.
  • Once cooled, cut it into slices and feed it to your dog. For cats, chop it up into small pieces before serving.

Carrot Mini Muffins


  • 3 medium carrots shredded (approximately 1 1/2 cup)
  • 1 cup sugar-free apple sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour*
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tablespoon baking powder

*I often use sweet potato flour for my dog food recipes and it works just as well.

carrot cakes for dog


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and
  • Line mini-muffin pans with paper liners.
  • In a medium bowl, mix shredded carrot, apple sauce, eggs, and milk then set aside.
  • In a large bowl mix the flour, cinnamon, and baking powder.
  • Once well combined add the wet carrot mixture to the flour mixture and stir until mixed.
  • Spoon cupcake batter into paper liners until 1/2 to 2/3 full.
  • Bake for 10 minutes (until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean).
  • Cool 5 minutes in pans then remove and place on wire racks to cool completely. This makes 4 dozen.

On Easter morning, you can make it a game and hide your dog's treats around the house, creating a special “egg hunt” for your fur baby. It will be a fun time for everyone! Happy Easter! And remember to keep the candy safely away from your dog or cat.
