Faye's Dog Friendly B-day Cupcakes

 Faye's birthday was on the 13th so we decided to make her a special treat.  I used this recipe but I made a few changes of my own to make it a little healthier for her and just because of what I had on hand at the time.  Stephanie was actually a big fan of these; they really didn't taste that bad and Kevin was a huge fan of the icing I made.  Even more importantly than that Faye was a huge fan she tore her cupcake up.  I also put some cheese sprinkles on top aka grated cheese. You could also top with some kind of shredded meat as well.

1 cup white or whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 brown banana (like you would use for banana nut bread) or 1/4 c applesauce
1 cup shredded carrots
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup honey
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Mix the peanutbutter, banana, vanilla, honey, carrots and egg together.
Add the flour and baking soda, mix well.
Pour batter into greased cupcake pans.  These make about 6 very full cupcakes.
Bake for 20-25 minutes.

3/4 c peanutbutter
1 six ounce container of yogurt (I used cherry vanilla because it was what I had in the fridge)

Mix the two together well and presto delicious dog friendly icing.
