It’s no surprise that I spoil our dogs. Brent blames me for Bacon being spoiled, which is probably true. 🙂
I’ve been watching re-runs of DC Cupcake and it really got me in the mood to make something fun for the dogs. I’ve been thinking about making some treats for the and all I needed was the inspiration to make some cupcakes to help make the decision easy.
I knew the basic ingredients I wanted to put in them, and just kind of wen from there. The doggies seemed to really like them…and people did too!
|2 Whole Ripe Bananas||1/2 Cup Applesauce|
|1/4 Cup Peanut Butter||2 Cups Wheat Flour|
|1 Teaspoon Baking Soda||1/2 Cup Canola Oil|
|2 Whole Ripe Bananas||1/2 Cup Peanut Butter|
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. First, mix the canola oil and applesauce. Then add in the peanut butter until it is smooth. Last, add in the flour and baking soda.
2. In a separate bowl, mash up the bananas and then add them into the batter. Pour the batter into mini muffin tins with paper liners. Cook them for 15 minutes.
1. Mash the banana until they are as smooth as possible. Then add in the peanut butter and mix. This will determine the thickness of the icing.
2. When the pupcakes are cooled, top them off with the icing and let the little nuggets enjoy!
The little spoiled doggies loved their little treats and I didn’t feel bad giving it to them because I know EXACTLY what’s in them. And it didn’t include any ingredients that I wouldn’t feel comfortable giving them any day of the week.
A few people tried them too…and they weren’t bad at all. Think banana bread without the sugar topping. They were delicious.
When I’m going out to the store and just want to pick up some treats to have in the cabinet, I love the Trader Joe’s Dog Treats. Simply because when you read the label, you know every ingredient. If you wouldn’t eat it, why would you feed it to them??
I’ve tasted the Trader Joe’s treats…and they are quite bland. Tastes like food…but bland. I don’t need to worry about anyone eating those 🙂
