Our three dogs are most definitely part of our family. I love making sure they get the very best and sometimes I like making sure they get a treat or two! That said dog food, treats and everything associated with pets can get costly so I like to make what I can homemade for them because it’s cheaper but also so I know what exactly is going into the food they are eating!

If you are like me and love making sure your pet has only the very best, and sometimes like to make sure they get to enjoy a treat try these homemade doggy muffins! My dogs think they are “human food” which they could be but I’m sure wouldn’t taste very good to us — which my dogs love! So they got nuts for these treats!

  1. This looks like a great treat for the fur babies. I don’t have any pets, but my mom’s dogs love treats.

  2. Oh my word…what a great idea! I’ve never thought of making my pup some cupcakes, but I know she’d love them! Thanks for sharing your recipe! :)

  3. We don’t have dogs, but we do have a cat and I love making her homemade treats, she is definitely part of the family. I could make these for my neighbor dog ,though – she would be so happy!
