    INGREDIENTS

    ⅛ cup whole-wheat flour

    1 teaspoon crushed dog biscuit (about 1 small biscuit)

    Fresh water

    1 to 2 raspberries

    Millet (optional)

    INSTRUCTIONS

    Preheat the oven to 300˚F/150˚C.

    Mix the whole-wheat flour, crushed dog biscuit and water together until it forms a dough.

    Transfer one scoop of dough to a separate bowl. Add a raspberry and stir until combined and the dough is pink.

    Dust hands with whole-wheat flour. Form the dough into 9 to 12 tiny “cupcakes” and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

    Top each cupcake with some raspberry mixture to look like frosting. Sprinkle with millet, if desired.

    Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until firm. Remove from the oven and let cool.

    Store leftover cupcakes in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months.

    Tip: Give a cupcake to your hamster as a special treat no more than once a week!
