Cinnamon Apple Pup-cupcakes

I'm sure by now you all know I have three small dogs.  Two of them are Shih Tzu's and the third is a Cock-a-Tzu (Shih Tzu/Cocker Spaniel mix).

They are all males.  Things can get pretty wild at my house at times when the boys begin one of their sumo wrestling sessions, especially if one breaks free and the other two have to chase him down.  If you own dogs, especially males dogs, I'm sure you get the picture.  To quiet them down, sometimes we have to give them somethings to chew on besides each other!  These little Pupcupcakes are just the thing, it keeps them busy for a few minutes.


· 3 cups rolled oats (don’t use quick cooking oatmeal)
· 1¼ cups flour
· 2 eggs
· ¼ cup oil
· ½ cup milk
· 1½ cup prepared applesauce (sugar-free)
· apple (chopped)
· ½ tsp. to 1 tsp. cinnamon


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease mini-muffin pan or line with paper liners.

2. Combine oil, milk, eggs and applesauce in large bowl and mix well.

3. Add dry ingredients in 3 intervals mixing lightly each time to incorporate.

4. Spoon into mini-muffin pan and press the back of a spoon in the top to make a small well.

5. Add chopped apples mixed with cinnamon on the top of each dough well and bake for about 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Allow to cool.  Keep refrigerated in an air-tight container; store unused in freezer for a longer shelf-life.

My boys give these two paws up!!!
