2 cups water
2 ripe organic bananas
1/4 to 1/3 cup unsweetened organic applesauce
2 tablespoons organic agave nectar
1/8 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
3 cups organic whole wheat flour
1/2 cup organic carob powder
1-1/2 to 2 teaspoons organic baking powder [u]Organic Cinnamon Frosting[/u]:
3 ounces organic vegan cream cheese (e.g., Follow Your Heart)
1-1/2 teaspoons organic cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon organic agave nectar, or to taste [u]Organic Carob Frosting[/u]:
3 ounces organic vegan cream cheese (e.g., Follow Your Heart)
1-1/2 teaspoon organic carob powder
1/4 teaspoon organic agave nectar

What you do: 

1. Cupcakes: In a mixing bowl, combine water, bananas, applesauce, agave nectar, and vanilla extract. Stir in whole wheat flour, carob powder, and baking powder. Put cupcake papers in a mini cupcake tray or spray it down with non-stick.
2. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 to15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
3. Cinnamon or Carob Frosting: In a bowl, combine all frosting ingredients and blend thoroughly.
4. Allow cupcakes to cool, then frost.
These are also a perfect low-cal/low-fat recipe for humans! What a way to bond with your pooch by sharing mini cupcakes. :)
For dog treats of any kind, they should contain no chocolate, salt, and sugar. Instead, use a natural sweetener such as agave nectar.

Thanks for this idea for my dogs! They always want whatever we are eating so this would be nice for them. I was also going to add as a note never give dogs artificial sweetners like Splenda, Nutra Sweet, etc. They will have liver failure from these so only use agave or no sugar for safety.
