Since the Mama totally blew it and forgot my Blogoversary, I told her she had better have something totally tasty up her sleeve to share today.

Here’s what she came up with:

Shepherd’s Pie Pupcakes

inspired by the Mashed Potato Muffins from Culinary in the Desert

Don’t the human ones look good? They are. 
Mama thinks they’re a pretty woofing fantastic way to get rid of leftover mashed potatoes. The only problem is that the original recipe isn’t very dog friendly. The Mama knew they could be though!
She decided to change the flavours inside. She thought a Shepherd’s Pie flavour dog treats would be a perfect fit for the potato muffin base.

Hi these sound great! I know my pup will love them. I was wondering if I could use brown rice flour instead of red mill gluten free baking flour. Thanks!

Hi Heather, You could definitely try, but they might not turn out quite the same. Brown rice flour is a bit heavier and may take more or less time to bake.

can you use whole wheat flour instead of the Red Mill gluten free baking flour?

I have never tried it, so I can't guarantee how it will turn out, but in theory, yes. I would use 7/8 c. of whole wheat flour for every cup of RMGF Mix.
