Birthday Cupcakes for your Dog

Earlier this week Steel turned 3 years old and we had quiet the party!!  Dad always says the little humans and Mommy celebrate their birthdays for a week and we celebrated Steel’s birthday for a week too!!  Mom made some birthday cupcakes for Steel’s birthday and since she had never made them before she decided to give them a try before his birthday actually got here.

Making sure the cupcakes were dog friendly and not going to upset Steel’s tummy was pretty important so she used a lot of ingredients that she already knew wouldn’t bother his tummy.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 whole banana (we freeze bananas so she just thawed out one that was frozen)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup local organic honey
  • 1 brown egg
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter

She started out by mixing all the wet ingredients together first and then added in the baking soda and finally slowly added in the flour a little at a time.

One of the little human’s borrowed her six cupcake pan for sorting toys so she had to use the big one.  To make sure the cupcakes didn’t stick to the cupcake liners she sprayed the cupcake liners with coconut cooking spray before putting the batter in the cupcake liners.

When Mommy cooks we know its usually for us, so we made sure to stay in the kitchen under her feet the whole time.

Then Mommy baked them on 350* for 20 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean.

After the cupcakes cooled, Mommy iced them with peanut butter and placed a dehydrated banana chip on top!!

Whats Up Wednesday #7

We have been quiet busy lately and with the holidays it has made getting on the computer harder and harder, but now that the holidays are over life should settle down!!

Nugget went and saw Santa!!  We are pretty sure he told Santa we had all been good this year because Santa was good to all of us!!

Mom made us some more peanut butter treats and this time they were shaped like snowflakes.

Sugar went to a new dog park we have never been to before.  Mom said since Dad was not with her that only Sugar could go.  She had a lot of fun with all the little humans and we decided to start a youtube channel to share our videos on!!  Make sure and follow us there, please!!

We got our shop opened!!  Mom is working on adding more and more items to it daily.

Looking for an Alternative to Raw Feeding for your Pups??

This post is sponsored by Chewy.com.  Read our disclosure here.

Are you looking for an alternative to raw feeding for your pups??  We know raw feeding would be much better for the dogs, but we just aren’t completely sure about it yet.  So we try to make sure we feed our dogs some of the best quality kibble food we can find.  Recently we learned about meal mixers from Stella & Chewy’s and I knew it was something I wanted to try out.

With all of the tummy and skin issues Steel has I knew meal mixers was something I wanted to try out for Steel.  Since we feed our dogs a duck based kibble food, I decided to go with the duck, duck goose recipe.  It also includes nutrient rich super foods such as blueberries, strawberries and bananas.

It also smells really good.  So much so that Steel was trying to eat it before I had even opened it.

Steel is a large dog weighing about 65 lbs, so the instructions state he should get 2+ scoops per day.  We feed our dogs twice a day so I give Steel one scoop in the morning and one scoop in the evening with his kibble food.

After I put in on his food I like to mix it up.  But Steel loves it so much that he picks out the meat from the meal mixer and eats it before he eats his kibble food!!
