I just did my own thing, but it turned out perfectly, so I will share the details with you! Most important thing to note about my recipe is this - I've based it on my own dog's food because I didn't want to feed them something that could make them sick. Also, to combat that reaction, I've made them with pumpkin, which is a miracle digestive treat for dogs. It's high in fiber and I give it to my girls if they are backed up or free-falling. Lol. Needless to say, it's a big help if you live in an apartment and they're both in good digestive health.
So, these Pumpkin Pupcakes will be based on your own dog's wet and dry food, with some pumpkin and other treats for added fun!
Step 1: Whatcha Need?
1 cup Pure Pumpkin (in a can, mushy stuff)
1 cup Wet Dog Food
1 cup Peanut Butter
1/3 cup Honey
1/3 cup Canola Oil
1 Finely Chopped Apple (or carrot)
Set Oven to 350 degrees!
Step 2: Throw it together!
When you're finished mixing, let your babies lick the mixer or the bowl! This is fun and cute to do, plus, it's the 1st taste test!
Step 3: Baking Time!
Fill the cups until they have about a half or quarter inch left at the top. They will raise, but just a tiny bit. Pack it in there neatly and make the tops smooth! Bake for 35 minutes and they should come out a little dark, because of the dry dog food. They hold together really well! Now, just ice them with the pumpkin and you can top with Beggin' Strips Sprinkles! (Just cut them up into tiny pieces.) I use this as a meal replacement, because it's pretty filling for them.
They usually eat half a cup, twice a day. And they were able to finish the whole Pupcake. This recipe will yield 1.5 dozen. I suggest to just ice a few of them, I iced 6 I think. Then put them in Tupperware and use them within a week or so. The rest can be put into a ziploc bag and stored for a couple months in the freezer.
Step 4: Serve and Enjoy!
Both of my girls love these because it's a different treat, it tastes like their normal food and gives them some fun tastes on the side. Hope you guys try it out, then come back to let me know how your dogs liked them!
