These delicious and healthy dog muffins are really easy to make and take about 10 minutes to prepare. This recipe makes about 20 to 24 dog muffins (depending on their size).
Preheat oven to 350º
Prepare cookie sheet with a non-stick spray or parchment paper
INGREDIENTS AND SUPPLIES (use organic whenever possible)
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon of cinnamon
1 cup canned pumpkin - not spiced or pie filling
2 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon of honey
2 tablespoons of molasses
1 large egg
1 apple - skin removed and cut into tiny cubes
Toss all the dry ingredients into one bowl, mix and put aside
Put all the other ingredients into a bowl and mix well
Prepare apple and add to bowl of non-dry ingredients
Add dry ingredients and mix up until you have a dough (not too much)
Drop spoonfuls onto baking sheet - if you make your dog muffins large like I do you will need to adjust your baking time considerably
Baking time is approximate based on your oven and the size of your dog muffins but you can estimate about 20 to 25 minutes for a muffin on the small side
Once they cool give one to your dog, he will love these Sweet Apple Pumpkin Pooch Muffins and beg for more. Keep these dog muffins in your fridge and freeze any extra as they won't keep. Not only will your dog have a delicious new dog treat to eat when he comes home from a long dog walk or a trip to the groomer but your kitchen will smell good too!
