If you’re looking for a tasty recipe in anticipation for your dog’s birthday or other fun celebration, then you’re in luck! We’ve got the perfect one for you. 

On today’s edition of Pet Chef, we present to you a delicious “pupcake” recipe that is based on four main ingredients: Banana, peanut butter, carrots, and honey.

Elton and Liam, two of Wamiz’ beloved office dogs, tested the recipe for you - and trust us, they loved it!

No-nonsense, easy to prepare dog cakes

This recipe was only made with dog and human-friendly ingredients. However, if your pooch is vulnerable in any way (is older, has a chronic illness, etc), double-check with a vet before making changes to their diet.

Total preparation time: 30 minutes

Wamiz tip: Use a pastry or piping bag to make fun designs on your pupcakes with dog-friendly peanut butter! You can also stick little dog treats to the peanut butter for added decoration! 

Nutritionist’s tip: Make sure you use dog-friendly peanut butter, i.e. without xylitol. For smaller dogs, cut the treat in two to four pieces and don’t feed them all to them at once. Alternatively, use smaller molds than the ones featured in this video. This is a “special occasion” treat and should not be fed to your dog every day.

Suitable for cats: Yes (in very small portions, so as to avoid an upset stomach).

This recipe looks complicated, but it’s actually quite easy to make, and most importantly, it’s very fun to make! 

Ingredients for peanut butter banana cupcakes for dogs:

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 banana
  • 80g peanut butter
  • 110g carrots; shredded
  • 80g vegetable oil
  • 85g cup honey
  • 120g whole wheat flour
  • 35g 1-minute oats
  • 1g baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Creamy peanut butter, for frosting


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C 
  2. In your muffin/cupcake trays place cupcake cases in each muffin hole
  3. In a large bowl, add the egg, banana, carrots, peanut butter, oil, honey and vanilla extract. Then mix all the ingredients together  
  4. In another bowl, add the flour, baking soda and oats
  5. Combine both bowls into one and mix everything together
  6. Fill the muffin/cupcake tray about 2/3 full
  7. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes
  8. Little tip: To know when your cupcakes are cooked, stick a knife in the middle and if the knife comes out clean, then your cupcakes are cooked.
  9. If you wish to add some “frosting”, you can use a pet friendly peanut butter

You can store these treats in an airtight container in your fridge for up to a week or two. Any longer than that and you could start seeing signs of moulding on your pupcakes. So you and your pooch (...and friends!) better get munching!
