Brooklyn’s Birthday Treat

On Tuesday, my little baby Brooklyn had her 1st birthday! Unfortunately, she is just as hyperactive and sassy as ever.

Since I love baking, especially cupcakes, I decided to make her a poochie-friendly carrot peanut butter cupcake.

Carrot Peanut Butter Poochie Cupcake Recipe (from Dessert First Girl)


  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a six cup cupcake tin with cupcake papers. Combine the egg, peanut butter, oil, and honey in a large bowl.

2. Add in the carrots and stir to combine.

3. Combine the flour and baking soda in a small bowl and add to the carrot mixture. Stir until fully incorporated.

4. Divide among prepared cupcake tins. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few crumbs on it.

5. Remove from oven and let cool on wire rack. Frost tops with a little peanut butter before serving to your furry friend.

She started by trying to lick the peanut butter off, hence the over turned cupcake.
