6. Pumpkin Carrot Pupcakes

You can make this recipe anytime throughout the year, but we highly recommend baking it in the crisp fall months when pumpkin-everything is all the rage. (Just image, you can drink your pumpkin latte while your dog is eating this pumpkin pupcake!)
7. Peanut-Honey Pupcakes

The main ingredients of peanut butter and honey provide a nice level of sweetness without going overboard in flavor. If you’re not sure which dog cupcake recipe to start with, this is a good one.
8. Peanut Butter Pupcakes
Found at Urban Bakes
Doesn’t this look like something that should be in an upscale bakery? Other than the garnish on top, you’d never know it was baked specifically for dogs.
9. Banana Birthday Pupcakes
Found at Morsels and Moonshine
Applesauce, banana and pumpkin provide a healthy base for this simple yet sweet recipe. No doubt your dog will gobble it right up.
10. Single Serving Dog Cupcake
Found at A Saucy Kitchen
The biggest challenge we have with making homemade dog treats is that the recipes yield large quantities, but without preservatives (which is a good thing!), you often have much more than your dog will ever get to before they go bad.
We love this recipe because it is single serve. You’re making just one scrumptious special treat and aren’t left with a pile of leftovers you’ll never get to.
With peanut butter, apple and bacon – bacon! – this pupcake is loaded with yum-tastic flavors.
