Happy pancake day everyone! Many of you will be having pancakes tonight and why leave that furry member of your family out?! Why not make some dog pancakes?!
We’ve made some dog pancakes and wanted to share the recipe with you all so that you can treat them without risking their health.
Why not normal pancakes?
Human pancakes are very calorific and too rich for dogs. Feeding them this may result in an upset tummy or worse. Firstly, normal pancakes we eat have milk in which is very difficult for dogs to digest. Lots of people will add chocolate (toxic to dogs) or sweetened sugar (if it contains xylitol fatal to dogs) to their pancakes which are also to be avoided. Any food we give to our dogs also has to be cool or warm. They won’t have the self-control to hold back if you give them a piping hot pancake and can end up with burns to the mouth and throat.
So we’ve made grain free dog pancakes with two easy ingredients; eggs and bananas! They only take a few minutes to make and the best news is you can eat them too! We’ve done a larger batch as we have two dogs and we enjoy them too. If you’re not sure start off with a half batch!
- Two bananas
- Two medium eggs
- Frying Pan
- Blender (ideally)
- Honey (optional)
- Toppings (optional)
- Chop up the bananas into a bowl or straight into the blender.
- Add two eggs and blend (electric blender helps you get a nice smooth consistency).
- (If you’re going share the treats too you can add honey to taste at this point.)
- Grease the pan and start the heat (keep it medium).
- Pour paste into the frying pan and cook until lightly browned. Flip as confidently as you can!
- Allow to cool and then serve with optional toppings. Fruits, peanut butter and doggy ice cream are usually big hits!
- Tip – you can keep any leftovers (yeah right!) in the fridge for tomorrow.
You can then go mad on the toppings! Barnaby loves chopped frozen raspberries and peanut butter on his. Cornelius prefers natural yoghurt or doggy ice cream!
Our boys loved theirs! If you make them for your dog(s) share some photos or topping ideas here or on our Facebook page!
