Peanut Butter frosted Pupcakes

Peanut Butter frosted Pupcakes

Hey friends and fellow dog lovers! You’ve just stumbled upon an easy cake recipe that will not only make your furbaby happy but it’s also super safe. I’m always cautious when feeding my two dogs (a Yorkie (11) and a Miniature Poodle (3)) anything other than their dog food and treats. I do not want to upset their little stomachs or harm them even worse. When I want to spoil them, I usually stick to giving them watermelon, blueberries, apples, or carrots. But for special occasions, we LOVE this pupcake recipe. Yes, we! This pupcake is a healthy treat for humans too, just leave off the MilkBone treat please! 🙂

If you don’t already have these ingredients in your kitchen, they are very easy to find. It’s important that you get the most low-fat, plain options to make sure there are no added sugars or artificial sweeteners that can harm your pup. Once you get the hang of this recipe, you can try variations to the frosting (i.e. cream cheese, sweet potato) and/or cake (i.e. banana) to see which tastes your dog prefers.



For the Pupcakes

1 cup whole wheat or oat flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 cup all-natural peanut butter (no added sugar or sweetners)

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1 cup shredded carrots

1/3 cup honey

1 egg

For the frosting

1 cup plain Greek yogurt

1 cup all-natural peanut butter

6 small MilkBone treats


For the Pupcakes:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line 6 muffin cups with paper liners.

  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour and baking soda until no clumps remain. Set aside.

  3. In a separate bowl, beat peanut butter and vegetable oil with an electric mixer until smooth. Add in carrots, honey, and the egg and beat. Add flour mixture and beat until just combined. Divide the batter into the 6 prepared muffin cups.

  4. Bake for 22 – 25 minutes or until cooked through. Cool completely before frosting.

For the Frosting:

  1. Start with 1 cup of Greek yogurt and 1 cup of peanut butter, combine.

  2. Keep adding more of each until you get the consistency you desire and have enough to ice each cupcake. (Add peanut butter to thicken, add Greek yogurt to thin.)

  3. Pipe the frosting onto each Pupcake using a piping bag (or ziplock), place a small Milk Bone (or any treat) on top of each. Serve!
