Pumpkin Pie for the Pups Muffins

Since the girls were so good all week, I thought I'd whip up a few Pumpkin muffins for them to enjoy.  More dog biscuit/muffin recipes, please visit

Pumpkin Pie for the Pups Muffins

2 ½ cups buckwheat flour
1 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
1 Tbsp. ground flax
1 Tbsp. hulled hemp seeds (optional)
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. dried ground ginger
¼ cup natural (no sugar) applesauce
1 cup pumpkin
2 Tbsp. blackstrap molasses or pure maple syrup
½ cup water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a mini muffin pan with non-stick spray.

In a large bowl, combine flour, nutritional yeast, cinnamon, ginger, flax, hemp seeds and baking soda.  Add applesauce, pumpkin, molasses and water, mixing well.  Scoop batter into the muffin pans until they’re almost full and bake for 25 minutes.  Remove and let cool completely before serving.  Store in the fridge. 

Makes approximately two dozen mini muffins. 


Biscuits- Reduce water by ¼ cup and eliminate baking soda. Knead into a stiff dough, adding ¼ cup of flour at a time until it can be rolled out without sticking to the rolling pin (add a bit of water if it gets too dry). Roll out onto a floured surface to ¼ inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutters or knife and bake on a greased cookie sheet until crispy. 

Cookies- Add ¼ cup of flour at a time until dough is firm enough to form into balls. Place dough balls on a greased cookie sheet and press flat with your hand or a fork. Bake until crispy.

Bagels- Make the same as the cookies except do not press them flat. Dip your finger in water and poke a hole in the middle of the dough ball. Flatten slightly to form a bagel shape. Bake until crispy.
