Autumn is in the air!

And so is the scent of these homemade Pumpkin Pupcakes.

Pumpkin is a sweet and nutritious way to treat your dogs to something yummy!

I think you may enjoy these yourself!

Homemade Pumpkin Pupcakes


  • 3/4 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 Tbsp dry milk
  • 1/2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 large egg


    1. Arrange 24 mini-muffin cups with paper liners. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
    2. Combine the dry ingredients (whole-wheat flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt, dry milk) and mix together. Add the pumpkin, water, oil, and egg. Stir to combine.
    3. Transfer the batter to the prepared cups. Bake for about 10 minutes. Allow to cool before topping with whipped cream. You can use pup-safe sprinkles as well, but those are optional. Don’t forget to take the liners off before giving them to your dog!
    4. These can be frozen as well.

The picture from the original post shows these iced… I think a little touch of cream cheese should do the trick.

Just don’t use a lot.. your dogs shouldn’t eat a lot of fat any more than we should.

I think these will be great without any icing anyway.
