Peanut Butter Banana & Carob Chip Dog Cupcake Recipe

All of the items in this recipe are safe for dogs – even the carob chips! If you are wondering what carob is exactly, it is actually a fruit that comes from the carob tree. Several dog food companies actually use carob in their treats and food and it can come in ship or powder options.

It does not melt like chocolate but they have a similar sweet flavor and actually have some health nutrients in them. It is also a good source of fiber and pectin!
