This weekend, many of us are planning a good old-fashioned Easter egg hunt around our homes and gardens. So, why not get our pups involved? We’ve put together this quick and easy recipe for doggy Easter eggs!

For this recipe, you will need:

- 140g of xylitol-free peanut butter

- 140g of coconut oil

- Optional extras for crunch: Good Dog Treats, apple chunks, carrot pieces

Equipment

Tip: you could also use a small ice cube tray

Method

- 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!

- 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!
