Ingredients

IMG_6405

  • 16 oz. canned pumpkin (plain – not pie filling!)
  •  ½ bananana
  •  ¾  cup gluten free flour (can substitute as desired)
  • ½ cup oatmeal (I used gluten free)
  • ¼  cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • ¼ – ½ cup water
  • Cupcake or muffin tin
  • Cupcake liners

Makes approximately one dozen small “pupcakes”

How to Make a Pumpkin Pie For Dogs

Step 1. Preheat oven to 375 degree Fahrenheit.

Step 2. Mix oatmeal and flour together in a large bowl.

Step 3. Add enough water to get dough to form a ball. Add water slowly, too much will make it too sticky, not enough and it will crumble (especially gluten free).

Step 4. Line cupcake tins. Take a chunk of dough and press into bottom of cupcake liner. Dough should go up sides a bit, about a 1/2″

Variation: you can roll the dough out like you would a pie crust and then cut into circle to fill entire bottom and side of tin. This will make a bigger pupcake. If you do this, you will not get as many pupcakes out of the recipe.

Step 6. Bake crust for 8 mins, until firm and slightly brown.

Step 7. Carefully take crusts out of tin, cool on rack. When cool, remove liners.

Step 8. Mix pumpkin, banana and half of the yogurt together
