Servings 6 pupcakes

Ingredients
  

For Pupcakes:

  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • ¼ cup applesauce heaped cup
  • ¼ cup yogurt
  • ½ cup finely shredded carrots
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • Honey optional and to taste I skipped it since I added it to frosting

For Frosting:

  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • Some bone shaped Dog biscuits for decoration (optional)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350F and line the cupcake tin with liners and keep aside.
  • In a bowl mix the peanut butter, applesauce, yogurt until well combined. To this add one egg followed by shredded carrots and mix well.
  • Next add the wheat flour and baking soda and mix all using a spatula until the batter is well formed.
  • Divide the batter equally into 6 or 7 Pupcakes.
  • Bake at 350 for 25-30 mins or until a toothpick inserted at the centre of the pupcake comes out clean.
  • Let them rest in the pan for 10 mins after which transfer them to a cooling rack. Once they have completely cooled down they are ready to be frosted.
  • For the frosting – mix honey, yogurt and peanut butter until well combined.
  • Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a nozzle of choice and frost the pupcakes. You can even skip the piping bag and directly spread the frosting over the pupcakes using a spoon.
  • Finally top with their favorite treat and serve with lots of love and hugs.
