Author: The Scrumptious Pumpkin

Recipe type: Dog Treat

Total Time: 15 minutes
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Yield: 6 cupcakes

Ingredients

  • ½ cup rye flour (or whole wheat flour or brown rice flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅓ cup canola oil
  • ⅓ cup applesauce
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
  • 1½ tablespoons peanut butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir the flour, baking powder, canola oil, applesauce, egg, and honey until well combined.
  3. Insert cupcake liners into a muffin or cupcake pan. Spoon mixture into cupcake liners, filling each about halfway.
  4. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
  5. Allow cupcakes to cool to room temperature.
  6. Meanwhile, in a bowl, stir yogurt and peanut butter until mixture is smooth and creamy. Use a small spatula or butter knife to smooth a thin layer of the peanut butter frosting over each cupcake.
  7. Storage: cupcakes should hold up for 4-5 days if stored in an airtight container in a cool, shaded, dry spot. Peanut butter frosting should be stored separately, covered and refrigerated. Frost cupcakes immediately before serving.
