I love to know about great treats for our dogs! I really do.  I was just browsing around magazines yesterday and found a great recipe for dogs.  I wrote a blog about FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD and HAND OVER THE SNACKS JACK, so you can see, healthy and great dog treats are #1 in my book.

Since the holidays are approaching fast and all of you that are talented and bake or not talented like myself and can’t cook, this recipe sounds delicious!  Here’s what I found from Tracy Werner a www.FidoToGo.net. Pumpkin “Pup” Cakes!  Can you dig this?

Baking Instructions:


1 cup canned pumpkin        1/2 cup cooking oil

2 egg whites                          1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 cup honey                      1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

1/4 tsp. cinnamon              1 tsp. baking soda

2 cups flour (can use white, whole wheat, or gluten/grain-free flour like Bob’s Red Mill with an addition of 1 tsp. xanthan gum, available at Whole Foods).

Fido Frosting

8 oz. cream cheese softened              1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup canned pumpkin                   2 tbsp. coconut flour

Use an electric blender beat the cream cheese, honey and pumpkin in a large bow until well combined. Continue mixing on high-speed for 3 minutes. Mix in the coconut flour gradually until incorporated. That’s what she said! Chill in the refrigerator in an airtight container for at least 2 hours.  Patience! Be sure to prepare the frosting 1st, as it needs time to chill.

Preheat your over to 350 degrees. Prepare a cupcake pan with liners.

Whisk together pumpkin, almond milk, oil, honey, and vanilla extract until throughly mixed.  In a separate bowl whisk flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon.  Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet and blend well.

Pout batter into cupcake liners, filling each about 2/3 full.  Cook at 350 degrees for approximately 20 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Cool completely before frosting, then frost the “pup” cakes with a small offset spatula or pipe it onto each cake using a pastry bag.  Top frosted “pup” cakes with cute shaped dog cookies (optional).

You can store the “pup” cakes in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Thank you Tracy Werner, Fido to Go Canine Cater and Food Truck www.FidoToGo.net. What a fabulous idea and a great and healthy treat for your dog.
