Happy 4th Birthday to my little booger! My fiance and I officially adopted Bandit on this day 3 years ago! We celebrate this day as his birthday+adopt to our family! When we adopted him, the Vet estimated by his health that he was about 1 years old, and now 3 years later I can't believe he's already 4 yrs. old. He's our son, and of course we spoil him. I really love him, he's such an amazing best friend!
For his birthday I decided to make him cupcakes. I found a great recipe on Pinterest, and went from there.
Bandit has a sensitive stomach (most small dogs have sensitive stomachs), and I made sure to research each element in this recipe before I made the cupcakes. I wanted to make sure nothing would upset my boogers stomach. These cupcakes haven't (so far) upset Bandits stomach, so they should be safe. I tried them the cupcake before I gave it to Bandit, and I'm fine...the cupcakes were actually good :D
Here's the recipe:
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (you can leave this out if your dog has a sensitive stomach)
- 1/3 cup honey (optional, but this is a sweetener in place of sugar. Dogs should NOT have sugar)
- 1 cup shredded carrots
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 mashed banana
- 1/3 cup peanut butter (more or less depending on desired consistency)
I hope you enjoy the rest of the pictures from my little Bandit's 4th birthday!
