So much thought goes into the foods we eat and the meals we make for our families, so it seems only right to give our furry friends the same consideration; we don’t like not knowing what goes into our dog’s store-bought food, so we decided to start making out own dog treats – you can customize the ingredients based on what your fur babies need, and then sit back and watch them devour their homemade snacks! These banana apple pupcakes are easy to make, but they’re even more fun when you use this adorable dog bone muffin pan…are they not the cutest thing?!
First and foremost, make sure to check with your veterinarian to be sure of what foods your dog can have. We know our pup is fine with everything we put in these pupcakes, so these dog bone muffins were a no-brainer. Once you do that, because these treats come together super easily and are inexpensive to make, you can (continue to) spoil your dog rotten and feel confident about what your pup’s eating!
