Proper Topper Dog Muffins

Add Honest Kitchen’s new Proper Toppers to your treats; they’re nutritious and fun!

Did you hear the news? The Honest Kitchen has just released Proper Toppers, a dehydrated superfood that’s the perfect way to pep up your dog’s meal! I gave the grain-free turkey recipe—made with 90 percent pure meat and mixed with antioxidant-rich whole produce—a try on top of these dog muffins. They were a hit in my house…on the muffins and in my dog’s bowl!

  2. In a large bowl, mix shredded apple, carrot, vanilla, egg, peanut butter and honey together.
  3. Combine flour and baking powder and stir into wet ingredients. Add water as needed.

You can also bake Proper Toppers right into the muffins. Instead of sprinkling on top, just add it to the wet mixture while you’re stirring in the dry ingredients.
