Blueberry Birthday Pupcakes

Celebrate your pup with these homemade Blueberry Birthday Pupcakes! These whole wheat blueberry cupcakes with blueberry cream cheese frosting are the perfect special treat for the dog in your life!Β 

Yesterday was Layla’s 4th birthday! If you are new around here then you may not know that we take dog birthdays pretty seriously around here πŸ™‚ Want proof? You can check out her first, second and third birthday posts here!

What is in Blueberry Birthday Pupcakes and are they good for my dog?

 

Like humans, some dogs have allergies or aversions to certain ingredients, but assuming your dog is allergy free all of the ingredients in these pupcakes are dog friendly!

whole wheat flour – a good source of fiber

baking powder – necessary for the cupcakes to rise

coconut oil – good for dogs skin and coat

greek yogurt – probiotics are good for dogs gut health

eggs – a good source of protein

blueberries – filled with healthy antioxidants and fiber

All in all the pupcakes are a healthy treat for your pup!

The frosting is not so healthy, it’s made with cream cheese, which is not really good for humans or dogs, but it is fine in moderation. And the dogs love it!

Note: If you are concerned about the cream cheese you can substitute it with greek yogurt, the frosting will be too thin to pipe, but you can spread it onto the pupcakes.

 

3 Reasons to Celebrate Your Dog’s Birthday

 

  1. They love you unconditionally – that at least deserves a pupcake, right?
  2. Their lives are short, we should really be celebrating their birthday 7 times per year, but since we only do it once we should make it a good one!
  3. It’s adorable – dogs in birthday hats eating pupcakes will make you smile, I promise

Patiently waiting for the pupcake to drop… I didn’t manage to get any good pictures of her with the pupcakes or actually eating them because she basically swallowed them whole… I take that as a compliment to the chef!

To our little Layla – you are a princess and we love you to the moon and back. You deserve all the treats and snuggles!
