Ingredients For blueberry pupcakes (dog treats)

  • 1/2 c
    high quality dry dog food kibble
  • 1 pkg
    jiffy blueberry muffin mix (7 oz)
  • 1 c
    fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2 lg
  • 2/3 c
    evaporated lowfat milk

How To Make blueberry pupcakes (dog treats)

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 2
    Put the dog food kibble in a food processor or blender and grind to a coarse flour. Measure 1/2 cup after grinding.
  • 3
    In a large bowl, combine ground dog kibble and the remaining ingredients until well mixed. The batter should be like a slightly grainy cake batter.
  • 4
    Grease or line muffin cups with paper baking cups. (Avoid foil baking cups; paper ones are digestible, so there's no danger in case your dog accidentally eats one, but foil could cause problems,) Pour the batter into the cups, filling each 1/2 to 2/3 full.
  • 5
    Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. (The baking time may vary, depending on the type of dog food and fullness of the cups)
  • 6
    Remove pupcakes from oven, allow to cool thoroughly, and store them in an airtight container.
  • 7
    Store in refrigerator.

    Optional: Frost with a thin layer of whipped cream cheese. Sprinkle with a few jimmies, ground dog food, or press a couple of blueberries into the frosting.
