Blueberry Dog Dream Cakes

 

Blueberries are an excellent source of anti-oxidants for humans, and they’re not bad for your dog either! (Plus, they taste great!)

 

Ingredients

 

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flower

1 cup quick rolled oats

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/4 cup canola oil

1/2 cup honey

2 large eggs

1/2 cup low fat-sour cream

1/2 cup skim milk

1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen and thawed

 

Preheat the oven to 375 F.  Grease a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick vegetable spray.

 

Stir together the flour, oats, and baking powder in a large bowl and set aside.  In a separate bowl, whisk together the oil and honey.  Add the eggs, one at a time, then the sour cream and milk.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until moistened.  Fold in the blueberries.

 

Fill the muffin cups 2/3 full and bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
