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.

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.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

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.
