Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

Pupcakes!

A while back I had saved recipes for pupcakes (cupcakes for dogs) and tonight I finally did it! Yesterday, I celebrated the two-year anniversary of the date that I brought my dog Ellie home so I thought this would be a good excuse to make the pupcakes. They were super quick and easy too!

Recipe from BakeSpace:

2 ripe bananas
2 cups water
1 egg
1/2 tsp double strength vanilla
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
2 Tbsp honey
1/2 cup peanut butter

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Spray cupcakes or mini cupcake pan with olive oil. (I greased them with butter)
2. In a large bowl, mash bananas with a fork. Add all ingredients except peanut butter and mix with a pastry blender until well combined. Add peanut butter and continue stirring until well blended.
*I just put everything into my Kitchenaid mixer and let it do all the work for me.
3. Fill cupcake tin 3/4 full. If using mini muffin tin, bake for 15 minutes. For regular-sized muffins, bake for 25 minutes.

For the frosting, I just mixed together plain yogurt and some peanut butter. There was no exact measurements, but it was probably about 2 cups of frosting and 1/2 cup of peanut butter.

It passed the taste test because Ellie inhaled it!

If you need a quick snack to share with your special friend and don’t have time to bake… regular carrot cake or cheese, in small quantities, or a ginger snap cookie will also work! Winking smile if you have a dog who tends to get car sick the ginger snap cookies often help with that too!!
