We put so much love into the food that we prepare for our human family, 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 our own dog treats – with customized ingredients based on what our fur baby needs. We love to sit back and watch them devour our homemade snacks! These banana apple pupcakes are easy to make, but they’re even more fun when you use this adorable paw print muffin pan…are they not adorbs?!

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 paw print 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!
