It’s Jack’s birthday! My little puppy dog is turning two today (February 12). For his special day, in addition to a couple new toys, I made him these cupcakes! He was so happy he got his own cupcake to eat with the rest of us for once! This recipe makes about 4 (and a half) cupcakes. I actually had to make these twice. First I tried making them using a recipe I found and well that did not go well. The second time I changed the ingredients around and the quantities to create this. This one is much better. One note to add is that I used the peanut butter that is made for dogs specifically. To me it seems a lot more oily than normal peanut butter. If you do use human peanut butter, you may need to add a couple teaspoons of oil.
He loved them so much, I will definitely be making these again in the future!
- 1 Cup White Whole Wheat Flour
- 1 Egg
- 1/4 Cup Water
- 1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
- 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1/4 Cup Peanut Butter
- 1/2 Cup Greek Plain Yogurt
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 4 cupcakes with liners. Set aside
2. Stir together the ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Make sure that they are mixed well. One thing to keep in mind is that these pupcakes will not look like normal cupcakes. The batter wont be runny, but will be more like a dough for a biscuit. These will be harder and more dense than a cupcake.
3. Shape the dough into balls and place in the cupcake liners. One thing I didn’t do but with I did, was press the dough into the cupcake liners so that it is flat on top and fills the entire shape of the cupcake.
4. Bake for 12-18 minutes. To tell if they are done, when touched your finger should not leave an indentation in them. They will also be one color, and look slightly lighter than they did before. Just to make sure mine were done I took one and broke it in half. Mine were in the oven for 15 minutes.
5. Remove from pan and allow to cool on a wire cooling rack.
6. Once cooled, you can frost them. I chose to frost them with 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt. Make sure that they are completely cooled before giving them to your furry friend!
*These should be used as occasional treats and are not supposed to substitute an entire meal!
