Does your dog eye your pancakes when you sit down for a relaxing breakfast? Thanks to the recipe development team at tails.com, we’ve got two easy recipes for pancakes specially formulated for dogs, perfect for a fun weekend breakfast for you both!
Banana Pup Pancake for Dogs
Servings: 3 – 4 pancakes
- 2 mashed bananas
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- A pinch of ground cinnamon
- Rapeseed or coconut oil for frying
- Your dog’s favorite toppings: we used blueberries and peanut butter (be sure the peanut butter does NOT contain xylitol which is toxic to dogs)
- Mixing bowl
- Non-stick pan
- Mix together the eggs and mashed banana until combined
- Add the coconut flour and the ground cinnamon, and mix well
- If your batter is a bit dry, just add a little bit of water
- Heat a non-stick pan on a medium heat and add your oil
- Once hot, add a spoonful of your mixture to the pan
- Cook for 2-3 mins (or until golden brown) then give it a flip
- Once the pancake is cooked through, transfer to a plate and repeat with the rest of your mixture
- Add your toppings and let your dog dig in!
The pancakes will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for a few days, or in the freezer for up to a month – that’s if you don’t eat them all…
