Party Pupcakes

I always try and do a little something for my dogs whenever they have a birthday. And despite Lexie's showdowns with snakes, cats, possums, skunks and a nasty infection that left her unable to see out her right eye, she made it to her 10 birthday this month. To celebrate I whipped up a batch of Party Pupcakes. They're made with apple, oatmeal, cheddar and yogurt and all the dogs loved them. Even my youngest son--he had 2 of them!

Party Pupcakes (original recipe from

1 large apple (minced)
1 1/2 cups wheat flour
1/4 cup oatmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons honey
2 eggs
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

2 tablespoons plain yogurt
2 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons flour
bacon, for garnish

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix flour, oatmeal, baking powder and baking soda together. Set aside.
Mix yogurt, water, oil, honey and eggs. Stir in apple and cheese.
Add flour mixture and stir together.
Spoon into muffin tins lined with cupcake liners.
Bake 20 min.
Allow to cool, then top with frosting and crumbled bacon.
