Peanut Butter and Banana Pupcakes - The Produce Moms

Does your dog have a birthday coming up? Maybe he finally tackled housetraining or learned a new trick. Whatever the special occasion, treat your dog with something special — Peanut Butter and Banana Pupcakes!

Peanut Butter and Banana Pupcakes

These dog-friendly cupcakes look and smell so tasty that their humans might be tempted to give them a try. They are safe for humans, but do not contain added sugar and are meant for dogs.

These pupcakes are peanut butter and banana flavored but we also snuck in some carrot shreds for a veggie boost. They provide an additional texture that dogs seem to love. Carrots a low-calorie, high-fiber snack for dogs, so why not?!

Bananas are another low-calorie snack that dogs really enjoy in moderation. In addition to fiber, they’re also high in potassium and vitamins.

Other pupcake recipes call for dog-friendly frosting. To keep things simple, we used canned whipped cream. It makes decorating a cinch. Whipped cream is safe for dogs, but do save it for special occasions only.

Top off your pupcakes with a small dog treat for the ultimate puppy dessert. There’s no way your dog know it’s a special day when you lay one of these pupcakes in front of his nose!
