Pupcakes are treats we love to make for our dogs, and of course the pooches just love them. They’re ideal for pet birthdays, which of course we celebrate for each pet!
We make pupcakes in a variety of flavors using fresh ingredients. I like to take advantage of seasonal ingredients and since it’s summer and berries are in season and are reasonably priced I make the Very Berry Pupcakes using fresh blueberries and strawberries. I know the dogs just love them and they’re good for the dogs too!
The only thing about berries is that they don’t have a very long shelf life. The best way to keep them is in Ziplock freezer bags in the freezer. I thaw them out as needed that way they don’t spoil or mold.
For birthdays and special occasions I frost them with softened cream cheese. Honestly they look good enough to eat!
Here’s my recipe for Very Berry Pupcakes! Hope your fur babies love them as much as ours do!
2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 Cup Rolled Oats
1 Tsp Baking Soda
I 1/2 Cup Coconut Water
1/2 Cup Blueberries
1/2 Cup Strawberries diced
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
Beat egg and coconut water together
Slowly mix in dry flour mixture and stir until well combined
Stir in Berries to distribute evenly in the batter
Line cupcake tins with paper liners
Fill each cup about 3/4 full – they don’t rise much so you can pretty much fill them to the top if you want, but these pupcakes are dense and heavy if you fill the cups too much it might be too big a portion for one serving
Bake in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool
Place cooled pupcakes in freezer bags and freeze until ready to use.
Thaw out as needed and remember to remove liner before giving them to your pet.
Frozen pupcakes should last about 2 months.
