I don’t think it gets any more fun than giving your pup a bite of some homemade dog cake! Let’s just get into a few Q&A before you get to baking!

Can Dogs Have Flour?

In short, yes. But flour can post an allergy to some dogs, and flour is certainly not a necessity in their diet, but rather is used as a binding agent in many treat recipes.

If possible, I recommend using Almond flour, because it’s healthy and easy to find at the grocery store.

Healthier Flour Alternatives for Dog Treats:

Grain: Barley, Buckwheat, Millet, Oat, Pea, Quinoa, Rice, Sorghum

Non-Grain: Chickpea, Coconut, Hazelnut, Lentil, Potato

A tasty blend of peanut butter, honey and carrots will make this cake your furry friend's favorite treat!

Ingredients
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup creamy all-natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract* *See Notes
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup Almond flour *See Notes
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the egg, peanut butter, oil, vanilla, and honey (optional).
  3. Stir in the carrots, then gradually add the flour and baking soda until well combined.
  4. Pour into a small and greased baking pan. I used a 5.75 x 3 inch mini loaf pan and it was perfect. a 6 cup ring mold also works.
  5. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes, (mine was done after 30). Turn onto a wire rack and let cool completely.
Recipe Notes

*The alcohol in the vanilla extract cooks out during the baking process but you may also substitute alcohol free vanilla extract as well.
