Ingredients (Makes 12 Pupcakes):

  • 2 eggs
  • 225g flour
  • 2.5 tsp baking powder
  • 65 ml olive oil
  • 185 ml water
  • 1 apple (for homemade sauce)


  • 300g Greek non-fat yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • Small dog cookies for decoration

Apple Homemade Sauce:

  • Cook 1 apple until soft, then mash it into a smooth sauce.

  • Gradually add flour to the wet ingredients, stirring until smooth.
  • Add olive oil and water to the batter, mixing thoroughly.
  • Fill each cupcake liner about 3/4 full with the batter. Bake for 22 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Once baked and cooled, create a small hole in the center of each pupcake and place a spoonful of homemade apple sauce inside.
  • Prepare the frosting: Mix Greek yogurt and peanut butter until well combined, then chill it in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  • Pipe or spread the chilled yogurt and peanut butter frosting over each pupcake, covering the apple sauce.
  • Decorate the frosted pupcakes with small dog cookies for a festive touch.
