Healthy Treat Recipes for Dogs
Healthy Pet Dog Cake Recipe with Carrots
Happy National Carrot Cake Day! I’m really loving this fun daily holidays. It helps keep me inspired on what to write on my lifestyle blog. Today, I will share a healthy dog cake recipe from my dog treat cookbook, Dexter’s Delights. But first, let’s talk a little bit about some of the health benefits of carrots.
The carrot has a variety of health benefits for both us and our pets. I’m going to guess that you are visualizing the bright orange carrot, but the carrot also can be yellow, red, purple or white. The orange carrots are high in beta-carotene, which is amazing for eyesight. Carrots are also a great source of potassium, fiber, and antioxidants. Research is also showing that carrots are beneficial in treating inflammation and cancer! Now that’s something to chew on.

The recipe sounds delicious! I don’t think Red could have it but Jack certainly could, and he’d probably enjoy them. I really don’t like cooking, yet between making Red’s whole food diet and dog treats, I’m cooking more than ever!!
Thanks. I’m not a big fan of cooking for me, but I love to do it for my pets. There’s something different about feeding a loved one vs yourself. 🙂
Could you make this without baking soda or baking powder?
You could. It just wouldn’t rise.
