My incredibly-spoiled and very picky dog has a real sweet tooth. As he has an issue with bladder stones, it’s vital that he eats and drinks regularly. Being picky though, some days he won’t eat dog food…but no matter what, he’ll eat something sweet. After him begging for more of a peanut butter and banana muffin (the recipe is posted in my Fave Recipes section), I decided to find a recipe that would be more suited to a doggie diet and found this one. I slightly modified it to include shredded carrots and oatmeal, as well as substituting the wheat flour for rice flour. Both my dogs love these and will eat them anytime. If you have a picky puppy, I would highly recommend keeping some in the fridge!
2 tablespoons honey
2 bananas, mashed with a fork
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/4 cup peanut butter
3 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees .
2. In a bowl, whisk together the egg, honey, bananas, carrots and peanut butter. Stir in 3 cups water; whisk until smooth.
3. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, oatmeal, baking powder and cinnamon; add to the egg mixture.
4. Spray two 12-cup muffin pans with cooking spray; fill each cup three quarters full. Bake until browned, about 30 minutes. Let cool.
