Making this dog muffin recipe is a wonderful way to take advantage of the seasons crop of winter squash. We used butternut squash for this recipe, but you can easily substitute acorn or spaghetti squash, to name just a few of the many available and healthy winter squashes.
If your dog takes a daily pill of medicine or a supplement, you'll love the soft texture of this dog muffin recipe. After they've baked and cooled, push the pill right in the middle of the muffin to make pill time more enjoyable.
Winter squash is low in calories and a good source of fiber, which makes it a good pick for those dogs watching their wasteline. All dogs will appreciate the vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, folate, omega 3 fatty acids and vitamins B1, B3, B5 & B6 in the squashes.
To make this dog muffin recipe extra special, decorate with cream cheese dog treat frosting and watch your dog drool in anticipation.
Storing - This dog muffin recipe will keep in the fridge for about two weeks. You can freeze them for later enjoyment for up to 6 months. To decorate, let them thaw, or come to room temperature first.
Yield - Using a mini muffin pan, you'll yield 24 little muffins.
This dog muffin recipe makes a dense and delicious winter treat. Warm for 5 seconds in the microwave for a slightly warm and aromatic homemade dog treat. These muffins won't rise very much in the muffin tin, so for variety you could place rounded scoops on a baking sheet, flatten and turn them into hearty squash dog cookies.
