Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 6 oz. plain yogurt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  • In a large bowl or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat together the flour, baking powder, eggs, yogurt, and applesauce and mix until combined.
  • Beat in peanut butter, honey, and grated apple.
  • Add a 1/4 cup of batter to each cupcake liner and bake for 20-25 minutes, until toothpick comes clean when inserted into the center. Allow to cool in pan for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • Once pupcakes have cooled, beat heavy cream until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.

Notes

Adapted from Little Epicurean.
Use a mini cupcake pan to make mini pupcakes for smaller dogs. Use 1 tbsp of batter per liner and make for about 10 minutes.
