Birthday Cupcakes For Puppies:

Yummy Banana, Carrot and Coconut Pupcake Recipe

delicious birthday pupcakes for Kilo the Pug

Kilo the Pug’s Birthday and Gotcha Day are coming up August 4th. We will be celebrating this weekend so I wanted to bake and test more healthy tasty Birthday Pupcakes for him. He loves banana and carrots and I had some in the fridge. I also had some rolled oats and shredded coconut so I created the following recipe.

Pupcake ingredients


3 heaped table spoons of rolled oats

2 table spoons of grated carrot (I grated 4 large baby carrots)

3 heaped table spoons of shredded coconut

1/2  banana

1 egg

1 table spoon of olive oil

1 teaspoon of smooth peanut butter

Pupcake batter in muffin tin

Recipe Directions

  • Pre-heat oven to 375′
  • Put all ingredients into blender and blend until thoroughly mixed- I left a few small chunks of banana
  • Pour and spoon mix, which is a thick goopy liquid, into a baking tray- the mixture made 4  (I rubbed a teeny bit of olive oil in each hole to stop sticking but not sure it made a difference)
  • Bake for 25- 30 minutes or until firm and light golden brown on top

I left them to cool in the tray then popped the 4 Pupcakes or Puppy Cupcakes out onto a plate in paper cups (I scooped under them with a spoon and they came out nicely). They actually look and smell like little banana muffins.

If you wish to add icing, mix a spoonful of smooth peanut butter and a spoonful of natural Greek Yoghurt (Kilo licked the spoon as he practised dancing and “sit pretty”).

I only added icing on one as Kilo does not need any extra Kilos, then I decorated with kibble pieces (not chocolate chips of course as toxic). I also purchased one with special hundreds and thousands from my local Pet Store to try.

Kilo waited while I took the photo, looking longingly at his loot. The cakes smelled so good.

Then we both tried one without icing to start. OMD, they were delicious.  My daughter shared a bite of mine – they are gluten free. We all approved!

They also make tasty treats for training. I broke up a third one later in the day as Kilo practised different behaviours and tricks and gave him about half in total. He was very happy.

Happy Tasty Tuesday.
