Doggy Cup cakes

I am a dessert lover through and through. My dogs are too of course. Here is a recipe that gives your dog a canine friendly treat, gives you the satisfaction of baking, while keeping your waistline safe!

Ingredients:

Cakes:
•2 cups shredded carrots
•3 eggs
•1/2 cup applesauce, unsweetened
•2 tsp. cinnamon
•1/2 cup rolled oats
•3 cups whole wheat flour
•1 tbsp baking powder

Frosting:
•8 oz. low fat cream cheese, softened
•1/4 cup applesauce, unsweetened

Directions:
1.In a medium mixing bowl, mix the first three ingredients
2.In a second bowl, mix together the dry ingredients, than add to the applesauce mixture, This is a very dry batter. When you put it into your muffin tins, make sure to press it in really well because it isn’t going to spread on its own, and you want them to be nice and circular
3.Bake for 25 minutes in a 350 degree oven; or if making mini muffins, only put them in for 10 minutes.
4.Once cooled, Simply glob on the frosting and your ready to enjoy ( or rather ready for your pups to enjoy) 😉
