Just because they can’t have chocolate (see Chocs Away!), our dogs don’t have to miss out on having yummy things to enjoy over the Easter period – thanks to these dog-friendly Easter egg recipes.
With spring in the air and Easter just around the corner, many of us find ourselves spending extra time in the kitchen whipping up delicious seasonal treats for our families and there’s no reason your dog should miss out on enjoying some goodies, either.
With this in mind, the recipe team at tails.com have shared these two recipes for dog-friendly Easter eggs that are healthy and delicious. Purrfect for spoiling your furry friend!
Dog-friendly Easter Egg
- 140g of xylitol-free peanut butter
- 140g of coconut oil
- Optional extras for crunch: dog treats, apple chunks, carrot pieces
- Egg-shaped mould
TOP TIP: you could also use a small ice-cube tray
- Add the xylitol-free peanut butter and coconut oil to a microwave-safe bowl
- Then microwave for 45 seconds or until completely melted
- Stir the mixture to get rid of any lumps, then pour it into the egg mould or ice cube tray until nearly full
- Add any optional extras into the moulds now as a crunchy surprise for your pooch!
- Put the moulds or trays in the fridge for 2 hours or until the eggs have hardened
- When your eggs have solidified, take one out and give it to your dog as a treat or make them their own Easter egg hunt!
Easter Scrambled Eggs
Eggs aren’t just delicious; they’re filled with nutritious protein and “good fats”. So they’re great for us humans, and they’re great for your dog too!
- 1 egg
- A handful of peas
- A dollop of dairy-free yoghurt
- 2 hand-baked lamb biscuits
- Crack an egg into a microwaveable bowl and whisk. Add in a tablespoon or two of water, a handful of peas and stir.
- Put in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir and back in for another 30 seconds.
- Split the scrambled eggs up into two servings, add a dollop of dairy-free yoghurt and top with a lamb treat
You can swap out peas for any of your dog’s favourite veggies. You can make sure they’re dog friendly by checking the blog on which vegetables dogs can eat.
