Here is a great treat one of my friends emailed me if you love baking for your dog.
Preheat oven to 350F.
Use a hand grater or a food processor to shred the carrots. In a medium bowl, combine carrot, apple sauce, honey, and water. Mix well. Add egg and mix just enough to evenly distribute egg (do not over mix).
Crush flax seeds with a rolling pin or with a quick spin in the food processor.
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl and create a well in the centre. Pour wet mix into the well. Mix ingredients well, scraping the sides to ensure all of the dry ingredients are incorporated.
I prefer to use silicone muffin moulds as they do not stick, but if you are going to use metal tins, grease them with coconut oil first. Do not use muffin cups as they stick to these cupcakes like glue.
Fill muffin trays 3/4 full. Place an apple slice on top of each pupcake.
Bake at 350F for approximately 30 minutes. Open over and sprinkle cheese over muffins. Return to over and bake for 30 more minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Note: Did you make too many pupcakes to eat before they spoil? Slice them thinly, lay them out on baking sheets and bake them for 3 – 6 hours on your oven’s lowest setting until they are crunchy and dry all the way through for a great DIY Dog treat.
