How to make dog friendly cupcakes


  • 125ml of sunflower or olive oil
  • 150ml of honey
  • 140g of peanut butter (make sure it’s xylitol-free)
  • 2 eggs (whisked)
  • 240g of whole wheat flour (sifted)
  • 2 teaspoons of baking soda
  • 225g of carrots (grated)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180’c.
  2. Combine the oil, honey, peanut butter (xylitol-free) and whisked eggs in a bowl. Mix well.
  3. Add the flour and baking soda and mix.
  4. Add the carrots and mix.
  5. Spoon the mixture into a muffin tray — regular or mini, depending on the size of your pooch.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  7. Once out of the oven, let them cool for 10 minutes before giving to your dog.
  8. Finish off by topping with extra peanut butter and other dog-friendly toppings of your choice. We’ve added strawberry and banana slices.


These cakes are great as a special treat or training reward for your four-legged friend. When you make them, give your dog less of their regular food, so they’re not overfed.

Some dogs could have sensitivities to some of the ingredients so these might not be suitable for all pooches. If you have any concerns about giving your dog new foods please speak to your vet.
