Pumpkin peanut butter pupcakes are homemade dog cupcakes made with pumpkin pureé, carrots, peanut butter and oat flour.
I can’t believe Hudson is one year old! It feels like I brought his little fur butt home just yesterday and now we’re celebrating his first birthday with some pumpkin peanut butter pupcakes!
Hudson (or Huddybear as I lovingly call him) has been the biggest joy in my life this past year. He is always full of cuddles, kisses and excitement so he deserves a special treat on his birthday.
This was my first time baking pupcakes and I wanted to make sure I was using ingredients that Hudson would love and keep his tummy happy. When I first got Hudson I baked pumpkin peanut butter treats and he loved them.
I figured the flavor combo would be fitting for dog cupcakes too! The pumpkin is really easy on puppy tummies while the peanut butter adds a flavor that dogs can’t resist.
These pupcakes are super easy to make. All you need is a mixing bowl to combine the ingredients! The cupcake batter calls for pumpkin pureé, shredded carrot and creamy peanut butter, which provide tons of vitamins and nutrients for my fur baby.
I also chose oat flour over whole wheat flour to keep the pupcakes gluten free. Hudson’s favorite part, however, was the frosting (he is my dog after all!)
The frosting is simply unsweetened Greek yogurt, peanut butter and a touch of maple syrup for sweetness. Huddybear went to torn on the frosting and biscuit garnish.
As I was taking these photos I couldn’t help but think, “It’s official, I’m a crazy dog mom.” And it’s true. I love this furry handful so much that he gets his own pupcakes #sorryimnotsorry.
I know some of you are dog parents as well and let me tell you you will love baking these dog cupcakes for your pup. It might be one of my easiest recipes too!
If your pup has a birthday coming up, you have to treat them to these pumpkin peanut butter pupcakes. Their tails will be wagging so fast when they get a lick of this peanut butter frosting.
Hudson managed to gobble a couple cupcakes up in mere minutes. I had to stash the rest in the fridge so he wouldn’t eat them all in one day!
