I recently visited Trentino Alto Adige. I went to Bolzano, Merano, the Lake of Resia, a couple of wonderful castles. It was a very short trip but I will take it all in the heart. The thing that left me the most in love is the vastness of the cultivation of apple: miles and miles of rows, with apples hung and almost ripe, to shine in that clean and sparkling air. Back home I have not thought twice about: Apple Muffin! Dogs in general love apples, for their sweetness and their crispness all to gnaw; They know they are also very good for their tummy!
For Hecate, which is a meticcina of 3 kg to say the least, a muffin is a bit ‘ large but usually I share it with Indy and so they do snack together. Meet the Apple muffins, preening a party because they’re perfect for a special occasion.
What do I have in mind? A birthday party a bit ‘ vintage for your dog’s birthday (as I call it, the “Can-Pleanno”) or his “home-Pleanno”: The anniversary of when you took him home if it was adopted. You’il love them!
Apple Muffins: Ingredients for 6 standard sized muffins
- Red Apple (or your favorite) 1
- Fresh Brewer’s Yeast 10 g
- Extra virgin olive oil 10 g
- Rice flour 40 g
- Flour 00 40 g
- Eggs 1
After washing the apple well, cut it to chunks. Put it all a blender, taking care to exclude stalks and seeds. Add also the brewer’s yeast, the extra virgin olive oil and the whole egg.
Operate the blender to get a smooth milkshake, then pour it into a bowl. It incorporates the two flours sieved and mixes well. The mixture will be very soft.
I filled it almost to the edge of the cups in cardboard, but you can use the paper classics, but placed in a muffin pan to not sformarli in baking.
Leave the muffins at room temperature for about 15 minutes, then cook them.
Here’s the Apple muffins ready!
Pre-heated static oven at 170 °, for 45 minutes
You can store Apple muffins at room temperature for 2 days, or refrigerated for 3 days and well-sealed in an airtight container. You can also freeze them, both in cups and smooth.
- The apple is very rich in fibers and in this recipe is used whole, core and peels including (but excluded seeds!)
- The egg scales in protein, making the muffins a very substantial and perfect snack if your dog makes a lot of movement. You can also exclude the egg white and use only the yolk.
