REASON WHY I LOVE MAKING MINI-PUPCAKES
Mini - Pupcakes are a fun way to celebrate your pup!
Pupcakes are great for sharing with your pack of friends.
They can be made in under 30 minutes! Just add a few extra minutes for cooling time if you want to frost them.
Easy to make with simple and familiar ingredients.
Your dog (and cat) will LOVE them!
I know how much you love your fur baby, which I am so excited to share this pupcake recipe with you! My fur babies (including my cat), and my friend’s dogs, give a big paws up to these tasty treats.
Ingredients used have been determined safe by my fur babies and I. However, if you have any question as to the safety of ingredients for YOUR dog, please check with your veterinarian.
Oat flour – You could also use whole wheat or white all-purpose flour. We used Oat flour for ours.
Baking soda – Make sure that you are using baking soda, not baking powder.
Oil – There are many oils to select from, your vet can help you determine what is the best choice for your dog. I personally like olive oil.
Peanut butter – Make sure to choose a natural variety, made strictly from peanuts. It’s important to avoid any peanut butter that contains Xylitol (also called birch sugar), which can be toxic to dogs.
Applesauce – Unsweetened, natural, organic applesauce, with no additional ingredients, is ideal.
Pumpkin puree – Double check that you don’t have a can of pumpkin pie mix, which typically sits right next to the cans of pumpkin puree. You want pure pumpkin puree. Also good for your pup’s digestion.
Egg – Make sure to grab a large size egg. Lately some “large” eggs look much more like mediums.
Plain Greek yogurt – I prefer to use a natural, organic, full fat yogurt. Yogurt is a good source of protein, calcium, and probiotics, all of which boost your dog's immune system and help them get over an upset stomach. Plain Greek-style yogurt is the healthiest yogurt for your dog.
FurBabies – Oral Drops I use the Power Blend Immunity Boost Mushroom Oral Drops. But you can substitute the Easy line (Easy Calm or Easy Joints) to make Pup Cakes that can help with calming or joint pain.
▢ 1 cup Oat flour
▢ 1/2 tsp baking soda
▢ 1/4 cup oil some options on sunflower or olive oil, but check with your vet
▢ 1/4 cup organic, natural peanut butter make sure it does NOT contain Xylitol (also called birch sugar)
▢ 1/2 cup organic, unsweetened applesauce
▢ 1/2 cup pure pumpkin puree
▢ 1 large egg
▢ 2 ml Of FurBabies Power blend oral drops
▢ 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
▢ 1/2 cup organic, natural peanut butter
▢ 1 ml Of FurBabies Power blend oral drops
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine wheat flour and baking soda
In a separate bowl mix together sunflower oil, peanut butter, applesauce, and pumpkin puree. Once combined, mix in egg until incorporated well. Add your wet ingredients to your dry ingredients and stir until combined.
Add 2ml of Power Blend to the bowl and mix folding in Power Blend to the finished dough.
Spoon out your batter (it will be decently thick) evenly between the muffin tins. You can fill them up to the top, because the batter is so dense, the cupcakes will not rise a great deal. We used our mini muffin tray to make 24 bite sized pupcakes. You can also use regular sized tray as well.
Also, you may want to smooth out the top of the batter in each tin with the back of a clean spoon to make them nice and rounded.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean and the cupcake springs back when lightly pressed.
Place the cupcakes on a wire rack to cool and frost if desired! My pup liked the frosted cupcakes and the plain ones!
If you plan to frost your cupcakes, combine Greek yogurt, 1ml Power Blend and peanut butter in a medium sized bowl and mix together using a spatula. Frost by piping or spreading on with a offset spatula or butter knife.
Storage: These will keep for about a week after they are made. I popped mine into a container and put them in the fridge!
Freezing: These cupcakes freeze well, though I recommend freezing them unfrosted.
Safety: Ingredients used have been determined safe by the author for her fur babies If you have any question as to the safety of ingredients for YOUR dog, please check with your veterinarian.
