Homemade Dog Treat Recipe

Sweet Potato Apple Pup Cakes

  • 1 cup flour (whole wheat, spelt, oat, barley, etc.)
  • 3/4 cups rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup mashed sweet potato (baby food sweet potatoes works well)
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 apple, peeled and diced small
  • Non-fat plain Greek yogurt for frosting
  • Small treats for garnish (crumbled biscuits/cookies, fresh or dried fruit)
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Mix dry ingredients together in one bowl.
  • In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients together. Combine wet and dry ingredients until well-blended.
  • Then, scoop the batter into paper lined muffin tins (6-8). Fill to the top as this dough is very dense and will not rise.
  • Bake standard sized muffins for 25-30 minutes, mini muffins for approximately 15 minutes (or until a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean).
  • Cool on a rack.
  • Frost and serve, or freeze the muffins without the frosting.
  • Refrigerate muffins that are not eaten.
