Mix 1 cup of whole wheat flour with 2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt.

It’s no secret that dogs love cheese. And some dogs also have a craving for sweets. For those pooches who like it all, why not create a batch of ham and cheese pupcakes? Start with your favorite sweet or banana bread recipe (this is one of my favorites) and add in finely chopped ham and shredded cheddar cheese. Bake until cooked through and serve hot! Warning: Your dog may never want another type of treat again!

#6 – Beef Jerky & Coconut Oil Treats

Dogs love these treats! Jerky is a fantastic treat for any dog because it helps keep their teeth clean, but beef tends to be an allergen. Using turkey and coconut oil means your dog can enjoy jerky without suffering from a reaction. Coconut oil has many health benefits as well, so you’ll be able to give your pet a delicious snack that’s good for him too! This recipe makes 36 treats that should last up to 2 weeks.

#7 – Peanut Butter Banana Mini Muffins
