Pancake Day aka Shrove Tuesday is a chance to cook with the family and enjoy some tasty midweek treats! Now your dog can join in on the fun with these tasty dog-friendly recipes that even you can eat!
Dog-Friendly Plain and Simple Pancakes
This easy-peasy recipe is just like the human version, but instead of milk you will be using water. For these plain dog-friendly pancakes you will need;
100g plain flour
300mp water(or enough to make a batter)
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl or a jug and allow to settle for a few minutes.
Once your batter has been allowed to sit, heat up a frying pan and add a little oil.
When the pan is hot, you can pour or ladle the batter into the pan to cook the pancake. Flip once bubbles start forming and the batter begins turning a golden brown.
Once cooked, allow to cool before feeding them to your pet.
Dog-Friendly Banana Pancakes
These delicious treats are a healthier alternative to the traditional pancake and can be eaten by the family too!
All you need is:
2 medium eggs
2 tbsp coconut flour (or plain flour)
(and a dash of cinnamon for the humans)
First, mash the bananas in a bowl and add the eggs. This is easier when the bananas are ripe but if not you can use a food processer.
Then, add the dry ingredients and stir. Allow the mixture to sit for a few minutes, especially if you have used coconut flour.
Next, you will need to heat a frying pan and melt some coconut oil or vegetable oil.
Scoop spoonfuls of the batter onto the pan. Once bubbles appear in the centre you can flip them and allow them to cook on the other side.
When they are golden brown they are ready! Don’t forget to allow them to cool before serving to your dog.
While your dog can’t enjoy lemon and sugar or chocolate on their pancakes, here are a few things that make great toppings.
- Their favourite dog treat, crushed up or artfully decorating the pancake
- A dollop of peanut butter (be sure to avoid peanut butter with xylitol as this can be toxic to dogs)
- Chopped banana and/or apples (with seeds and cored removed)
- Chopped carrots for a savoury pancake
