Healthy Peanut Butter Pupcakes

Your pup will love these Healthy Peanut Butter Pupcakes!  This is a simple & quick recipe to whip up for your furry friend!  Filled with delicious peanut butter, oats, shredded apple and carrots.

Ok, first I have to say I actually cannot believe I made pupcakes for our dog Molly’s 1st birthday.  Seriously, I don’t even recognize myself…if you would have asked me a year or so ago if I would EVER bake cupcakes for a dog I probably would have laughed hysterically.  See, I never fancied myself a dog person, but that was until Miss Molly came into our lives.

Healthy Peanut Butter Pupcakes

This furball has worked her way into our hearts, and we cannot imagine our life without her in it.  The joy and laughter she has brought to us is priceless.  Ya, ya I’m getting sappy.  But seriously.  Look at her!  She was SMILING when we set that cupcake down in front of her (look at the top picture…that’s a happy pup!).

A Pupcake recipe your dog will love!

Mind you she probably couldn’t believe her luck, because we don’t normally feed her much other than her kibble, and certainly never at the dinner table, so she must have known she was getting something good.  Ha!  And I’d say these pupcakes were a hit because she gobbled up the two we gave her, really fast.  So funny.  The kids couldn’t stop laughing!

Delicious and healthy!

This is a really simple recipe with ingredients that I feel good about giving her…they contain peanut butter, apples, carrots and oats, then more peanut butter for the frosting.  A dog’s dream.  And yes, we did try one…they’re pretty good. 😉
