 Easy Peanut butter dog cake recipe



  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (***xylitol free!)
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup unsweetened pumpkin puree (you can use homemade or canned pumpkin puree)
  • 2 eggs


  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (***xylitol free!)


    1. Mix dry ingredients (flour and baking soda).
    2. Mix wet ingredients (coconut oil, peanut butter, apple sauce, pumpkin puree and eggs).
    3. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
    4. Pour into 2 8-inch round baking pans and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
    5. Let cool completely before frosting. 
    6. Mix together the frosting ingredients (peanut butter and Greek yogurt).
    7. Decorate! I used store bought Milkbone dog cookies to decorate our cake but you could also add shredded cheese, dog-safe fruits, shredded carrots or other dog treats.


    *If you want to make pupcakes, you could make only half the recipe and bake for 15-20 minutes.

    **Always be careful when adding new ingredients to your dog’s diet.
