Pumpkin & Peanut Butter Brain Pupcakes

I...want...BRAINNNSSS! 


These pupcakes were so fun to make. I bought these Wilton 12-piece cupcake decorating set. You can make all sorts of fun designs. In the spirit of Halloween, I made the pumpkin icing look like brains.


Happy Halloween everyone! I hope y'all have a fun and safe time. This concludes our Howl-o-ween edition for 2011.
Some dogs like to dress up but not mine. Mochi acts like wearing a costume is a death sentence. Drama queen much?


INGREDIENTS:
(~6 pupcakes)
  • 1 C. of whole wheat flour (regular or white)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1/2 C. skim milk
  • 1/4 C. unsweeted & unsalted peanut butter
  • 1/8 C. pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/4 C. water
Frosting:
  • 1/4 C. pumpkin
  • 1 oz low fat cream cheese
DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven 350 degrees.
2. Mix flour, egg, olive oil, honey, skim milk, peanut butter, pumpkin, and water together. Batter should be thick.
3. Pour into cupcake tins about 2/3 full.
4. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes. Let cool.
5. Mix 1/4 C. of pumpkin with 1 oz of cream cheese. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
6. Using a Wilton #12 tip, pipe the left and right hemispheres of the brain then pipe the middle.

Cut into small pieces for your dog to avoid choking. Feed this treat sparingly as a very special treat. The honey and cream cheese gives this treat a higher sugar and fat content.

STORAGE:

Store in an airtight container for 5 days. 
Tip: Write date on plastic bag to keep track of expiration date.

  1. Thanks! Terribly informative article. Or dog was simply diagnosed with cancer, and we're extremely making an attempt to clean up her diet and find her healthy. See more at homemade dog treats
