Canine Candy Corn

All the cheery colour of candy corn without the sugar — you and your pup will love these festive frozen treats!


  • 1  1/2 cups non-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1-2 small bananas
  • 8 3-ounce paper cups


  1. Fill each cup about 1/3 full with yogurt. Freeze until set.
  2. In a small bowl, mix 1/2 cup yogurt and 1/2 cup pumpkin purée. Pour the yogurt/pumpkin mixture over the frozen yogurt layer, leaving space at the top for the third layer. Freeze until set.
  3. Mash the bananas in a small bowl. Stir in the remaining yogurt. Pour the yogurt/banana mixture over the frozen pumpkin layer. Freeze until set.
  4. Peel off the paper cup and serve.


Doggy Doughnuts

Your dog will drool over these yummy doughnuts made in the microwave.


  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup beef broth or chicken broth
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3 tablespoons quick-cooking oats


  1. Grease a shallow, microwave-safe plate or baking dish. Set aside.
  2. Whisk together the egg and broth in a large bowl. Gradually stir in the flour and oats.
  3. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and roll it to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut out cookies using a round cookie cutter. Use a smaller round cookie cutter to cut out the center doughnut hole. Place the cookies on the greased plate or dish without crowding them.
  4. Cook in the microwave for a few minutes until the doughnuts are firm. Cool on a wire rack.
  5. Repeat until all the remaining dough is used up.
  6. Store in a sealed container in the fridge.

  3. Cut the loaf into 1/2-inch thick slices. Cut the slices into bite-sized pieces.
