Scarf'd: Mini pup-kin pies

We did a trial run and our office dog approved.

Now you can have your pie and (your pup) can eat it too!

 

 

Recipe for Mini Pup-kin Pies:

Ingredients List

  • 3 tbsp organic, creamy (unsalted) peanut butter
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (plain pumpkin only, no pumpkin pie filling)

Toppings

We piped on dollops of dog-friendly “whipped cream,” created by mixing plain Greek yogurt with organic, creamy (unsalted) peanut butter.

1. Preheat oven to 350° F.

2. Combine peanut butter, flour, water and egg in a bowl. Mix well.

3. Divide mixture (crust) evenly to cover bottom of your mini muffin cups. (We used silicone, paw-shaped pans.) Be sure to create a crust edge for your mini pies by going up the edge of the mold.

4. Take pumpkin puree and spoon equal sized dollops onto each crust.

5. Bake 18-20 minutes or until the puree begins to turn a golden brown.

6. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Decorate with our dog-friendly “whipped cream.”

Bonus Tip. For pups allergic to grain, substitute the recipe below for the crust and still use the pumpkin puree as your filling.

  • 1 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 coconut flour
  • 1 cup sweet potato (cooked/mashed, about 1 large)
  • 1/4 cup water (can add additional if need be)

Mix the above ingredients together, and use as your crust / top with pumpkin puree as stated in original recipe and decorate.

Disclaimer: We recommend consulting with a veterinarian before serving your pup human food.
