Pupcakes for Bubby

IMG_9688

The Bubster turned 7 last week – yikes, he is getting so big!! Of course every year we have to do something special for his big day, and this year was no different!

These pupcakes are human & dog friendly so yes, your husband can taste one (without the dog bones please)! Also they are freezer approved. So if your pup can’t finish them off stick them in a ziploc baggy and save them for another time.

Lets get to it…

  1. Preheat oven to 350degrees & line or spray 6 cupcake tins
  2. In a large bowl combine 1/2C whole wheat flour, 1/3C veggie oil, 1/3C unsweetened applesauce, 1 egg, 2T honey & 1t baking powder – mix well
  3. Divide the batter into the muffin tins & bake for 10-15minutes (until toothpick comes out clean)
  4. Whip up the icing by mixing 3T greek yogurt & 2T PB together (add more of either if you desire)
  5. Remove cupcakes, let cool completely then frost & decorate with mini dog bones

My pup ate two right on up – but be careful cause the PB & yogurt blend is a bit sticky & could get stuck in your dogs mouth if he takes too big of a bite (I witnessed it myself, haha)!  Enjoy!

Bubby’s Cheddar Biscuits

_MG_1800

My dog is a beast – an english bulldog named Bubby. My hub & I got him almost 6 years ago & he is the light of our life (most of the time)! Our boy weighs in at almost 60lbs – majority of his pounds is pure muscle, the rest just excess skin.  He will eat anything & everything (except celery) anytime – whether it be his daily meals, our daily meals, treats from strangers, food on the streets & sometimes even trash that he thinks may be food. He is gross but he’s our little angel!

The hub was away for a few days so it was just the Bubster & myself – so why not treat our pooch to a lil love while he was missing his dad.

  1. Preheat oven to 350degrees & line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper – set aside
  2. Mix the following in a large bowl: 1.5C brown rice flour, 1/2C old fashion oatmeal, 1/3C shredded cheddar, 1/3C unsweetened applesauce, 1/4C grated parm cheese, 2T EVOO & 3T water – form dough
  3. Grab a cutting board or lay parchment paper down – spread a bit of the brown rice flour on the surface, lay the dough & roll out with pin (1/4″ thick)
  4. Cut with whatever size cookie cutter you like  (like I said, Bubby is a beast so I opted for a larger biscuit size which made 12)
  5. Re-roll scrapes & continue process til all dough is used
  6. Bake in oven for 30-350minutes or until golden brown & let cool on wire rack overnight in oven
  7. Once cooled store in an airtight container in your fridge for up to 2 weeks

If you want to spruce it up for your pup use your thumb & pinky to make a paw imprint! Hope your pooch enjoys, cause I know my guy sure did! The picture below was him staring me down waiting for his cheddar biscuit, look at those eyes!
