Creamy Peanut Butter “Pupcakes”

Creamy Peanut Butter “Pupcakes”

Pets, especially dogs, truly are man’s and woman’s best friends! More and more, we consider them one of the family. Why not celebrate an important day in their life with a special, healthy treat — maybe for their birthday or just to say say thanks for always being there?

Dogs may drool over our sweet treats but we know that all human food ingredients aren’t healthy for pets to ingest. In fact, some can be toxic. So it’s important to serve our pets treats made with ingredients suited to their unique physiology.

The best way to ensure that your dog enjoys delicious and nutritious sweets is to make them yourself using wholesome ingredients. Use organic products when possible, with no artificial sweeteners, no added salt or sugar. These Creamy Peanut Butter “pupcakes” are sure to delight your dog on his birthday or other special occasion!

Creamy Peanut Butter Pupcakes
Yield: 14 mini muffins (or 6 regular-size muffins)

½ cup gluten-free 1 to 1 rice baking flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/3 cup coconut oil
1 large egg
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt or plain, whole milk, grass-fed yogurt
2 tablespoons organic, natural peanut butter

Add flour and baking soda to a food processor and pulse to combine. (You can use a large bowl and hand mixer, if you prefer.) Place remaining ingredients in the food processor or bowl and mix thoroughly until batter is smooth and creamy. Coat the insides of a mini muffin pan with additional coconut oil.

Fill the muffin cups with batter.  Bake at 350° F for 12 to 15 minutes until golden. Remove muffins with a spoon and allow to cool on a wire rack before serving.

Creamy Peanut Butter Frosting
Frosting is optional as the scent of peanut butter in this cake will entice your dog to take a bite. To make frosting, stir ½ teaspoon of organic peanut butter into ¼ cup of plain Greek yogurt. Store the frosting in the refrigerator and spread on top of the cupcakes with a knife or spatula when ready to serve.

Caution! Be sure to remove any candles or inedible decorations before feeding to your pet!

    Love the recipe but also love the picture. We have a non-profit corporation that uses silly pictures to work with Alzheimer’s/dementia patients. May we have permission to use this picture please?

    Have made rice flour by processing uncooked brown rice in a Ninja 1/2 cup at a time. Also, if you replace half the dairy with good quality honey, the cakes will be tasty for you as well. Add a touch of honey to the icing to ramp up it’s flavor. Honey, in moderation, is good for dogs.

  • If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
