Peanut Butter Banana Pupcakes

These doggy muffins are now at the top of Sam’s list of favs!  How do I know?  Because he took his begging to a whole new level after I made them.  Get this…About 3 o’clock this morning, he wakes me up whining and crying.  Thinking he needs to go out, I drag myself out of bed and we head downstairs.  Instead of running to the back door, he runs for the kitchen and starts doing a happy dance while staring at the big ziploc baggy that’s filled with these freshly baked pupcakes.  Seriously, Sam?!  Consider yourself warned.  :)

Peanut Butter Banana Pupcakes


1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth – I used natural smooth)

1 large egg

3/4 cup milk

1 banana

3 tablespoons oil

1/4 cup honey


1.  Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and either line a muffin tin with paper cups or lightly spray it with oil.

2.  Mix together all of the dry ingredients and set the bowl aside.

3.  Using a food processor, blend the peanut butter, egg, milk, banana, honey and oil until smooth and well blended.

4.  Using a large spoon or rubber spatula, fold the wet ingredients into the dry.  Note:  Don’t go crazy here, you just want the dry ingredients to be incorporated with the wet ones.  The resulting mixture will be somewhere between a batter and a really sticky dough.

5.  Spoon the mixture into the muffin pan, filling each cup to about 3/4 of the way full.

6.  Bake for 12-14 minutes if making mini muffins and 18-20 minutes for regular-sized.

Store these in an airtight container (hence the aforementioned ziploc baggy) at room temperature and they’ll keep for about a week.

    I was wondering how many this makes.. I just have a little puppy and wouldn’t need much.. as I will be using them as a reward for training only..
    And can they be frozen??

      Hi Tammy! I’m so sorry that I missed your comment! It’s been awhile, to say the least. :(

      This recipe makes about 3 dozen or so. They do freeze well, but if you’d like, you could cut the recipe in half since each pupcake made in a mini muffin tin would likely be more than 1 treat for a small dog.

      Hope that helps and so sorry that it took me so long!

    The peanut butter banana muffins really sound good. I was wondering if a dog with IBD and an acid refux problem can eat peanut butter and bananas?

    • Monique says:

      Hi Donna,

      My 1st instinct is that the banana and peanut butter wouldn’t pose a problem. That being said, if I were you, I’d make a quick call to my vet’s office and ask. Better safe than sorry…
