Banana Carrot Pup Cake Recipe

Have you ever noticed how many dogs have birthdays in December? Well if you have a dog with a birthday coming up, consider baking them a special treat.  My soon to be six-year old lab Sophy’s birthday is coming up so I thought I would share her favorite cupcake recipes.  OK she is a lab and everything is her favorite recipe.  It yields 12 cupcakes so why not invite some of your pup’s friends over for a little celebration.


  • 4 cups of whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 large carrots, shredded
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 3 cups of water


  • Preheat oven to 375
  • Lightly grease a 12-cupcake pan or spray with non-stock spray
  • In a large bowl mix the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl
  • In another bowl, mix the water, banana, carrots, egg, vanilla and honey
  • Add the flour mixture to the banana carrot mash and mix thoroughly
  • Fill each cup about 3/4 full
  • Bake for 50 – 55 minutes
  • Place cupcakes on a wire rack to cool before serving

Remember, whenever adding new foods to your dog’s menu, cut back on some of his regular food to avoid any weight gain.  Also if your pup has a sensitive tummy consider giving just half a cupcake, or avoid entirely.
