Pumpkin Pupcakes for Rogue’s Adoption Day

It’s Rogue adoption day today, so I thought I would bake her something this morning. I can’t believe it’s been a year that we have had her. We have watched her grow so much in personality and health so I put together a collage of pictures of her first year.

On the the pupcakes… they are made of pumpkin and oatmeal, you can substitute the coconut flour for whole wheat flour if needed however you may need to add an extra bit of water. It makes 6-8 pupcakes but could easily be broken down into many more mini-muffin sized versions of the same thing.

Pumpkin Pupcakes for Rogue Adoption Day

  • 1 banana, peeled and mashed
  • 1 cup of large flake oatmeal
  • 2 tbs flax seed
  • 1/3 cup of coconut flour
  • 3 tbs agave syrup
  • 1 +1/2 tbs of olive oil
  • 3/4 cup of canned pumpkin
  • 1/3 tsp of cinnamon
  • a pinch of salt

Method

Pre-heat oven to 350 and line a muffin tin with 8 cupcake liners.

Add flax seed and oatmeal to a food processor and blend until finely ground in texture.

Peel and chop a banana and add to a mixing bowl. With a fork, mash the banana. Add pumpkin, cinnamon, olive oil, and salt to the banana and mix well.

Add oatmeal and flax seed mixture along with coconut flour and stir until just combined.

Evenly divide mixture into cupcake liners and smooth out the top.

Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes. Edges should just be browned.

Let rest until cooled on a wire rack before serving to your furry best friends.

With the remaining pumpkin spread into an ice cube tray and freeze. Pumpkin helps with digestion in dogs and one cube is the perfect amount to help soothe an upset tummy.
