Bacon Apple Pupcakes


  • 2 ½ cups whole wheat flour or oat flour
  • 1 tsp salt (or less)
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup beef or chicken stock
  • ¼ cup applesauce
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped bacon bits
  • 2-3 Tbsp bacon grease (for glaze)

DIRECTIONS: Mix together first 6 ingredients until a heavy dough is formed. Prepare pan by brushing with butter or oil. Press dough gently into each well of the Pampered Pet pan, filling nearly to the top. Bake at 350ºF for 20-25 minutes until each bone is golden brown and fairly firm to the touch, then remove from oven. Remove the treats from the pan soon afterward, and allow to cool on a rack. For added decadence, use reserved bacon drippings to glaze the top of each cooled treat. Makes 2 dozen treats.
