Carob Chip and Banana Gluten Free Dog Muffins

Give your dog a sweet treat with a taste of carob.

We all know that chocolate is dangerous for dogs…but did you know that carob makes an awesome substitute? Carob is a sweet and safe treat for dogs, and that’s why we’ve added it to our Carob Chip and Banana Gluten Free Dog Muffins with Goat Milk. Carob contains a naturally sweet flavor, similar to chocolate, but it also contains a variety of healthy nutrients such as vitamins A, B, and D as well as calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, and protein.

Recipe Notes

Before you take the muffins out of the oven, poke one in the middle with a toothpick. If it comes out clean, they’re ready to come out.
