Can Dogs Eat Muffins?

Giving dogs a normal muffin people would eat is not a good idea. While most muffins are not toxic to dogs if they did get a hold of them, you would not really want to choose to give it to them.

That would be for the same reason you don’t want to feed them most people food. There are tons of extra additives, sugar, and fats that are not healthy for dogs to eat.

However, it is ok for dogs to eat dog muffins. They are muffins that are made with dogs in mind cutting out all the extra things that make them unhealthy for dogs.

They also often have dog health in mind adding things like flaxseed for dogs or oats for added fiber. 

Frequently Asked Questions About This Banana Dog Muffins Recipe:

Q: Can I use a green or just turning yellow banana?
A: The answer is yes and no. While it will not hurt the dog if you used an unripe or just ripe banana, the muffins will not be as good.

That is because we do not add sugar or any other type of sweetener to this recipe. And when a banana is not ripe or just ripening it is nowhere near as sweet as when it is overripe. So your dog may not enjoy them as well.

The other issue you run into if you do not use an overripe banana is they will be dryer.

Bananas that are not ripe or just ripening are much dryer in texture, unlike an overripe banana.

So using an overripe banana really works best for this mini banana dog muffins recipe.
