Dog Friendly Pancakes for Pancake Day

With pancake day around the corner, it is only natural that we will be thinking about how to include our cherished dogs in the festivities. Of course, we don’t want to ply them with bowls full of pancakes covered in maple syrup, chocolate and cream. So, what are some pup-safe options available? Can dogs eat pancakes at all? dog sat at a table wearing a chefs hat with pancakes in front of him on a plate

A tasty and safe dog pancake recipe

A great base recipe for dog friendly pup pancakes is a simple one:

  • One ripe and sweet banana
  • One egg (shell can be included if you like)
  • 100g of plain flour*

* As flour is usually made from wheat, use an alternative if your dog is intolerant or allergic to grains. Good options include coconut flour or almond flour.

Mash the ripened banana with a fork until a smooth consistency. Add the egg and flour, beating until a smooth batter is formed.

This batter can be fried like a classic pancake or used in a waffle maker. If frying, use a small amount of coconut or olive oil. It can be useful to use an oil spray, meaning only a few drops are used to grease the pan and prevent sticking.

For dogs prone to pancreatitis, steer clear of the oil altogether.
