Before cooking the pancakes make sure your dog is not allergic to any of the ingredients

Try and use natural peanut butter.  However, it is important to check the ingredients of the peanut butter you use as some contain xylitol.  This artificial sweetener is toxic to dogs.

If your dog has not had pancakes before then start off with smaller portions in case, they get an upset stomach.

If you have any doubt, then please seek a professional opinion first

Kitchen equipment required.

A medium measure jug
Whisk although I prefer a Falk

Ingredients for dog friendly pancakes

One free-range egg (medium)

A pinch of baking powder
180ml buttermilk
2  tablespoons peanut butter (with no xylitol)
64g flour – wholemeal or wheat buck floor
A small amount of water
Cooking oil such as coconut oil


For the topping

A small amount of  warm water (approx a tablespoon)
Strawberries minus stalk and chopped up or other pet-friendly fruit such as banana
As a special treat a small amount of honey

How to make dog-friendly pancakes

Combine the flour and baking powder
Add the egg and milt to the dry mix and whisk with a Falk until you get a smooth but thick batter
If required add a drop of water
Allow mixture to stand for around 10 minutes.

Whilst the mixture is standing. Heat the frying pan with a small amount of coconut oil on a medium.

Gently pour the mixture into the frying pan.  After around 2 minutes it is time to flip your pancake over and cook for around 1or s minutes on the other side.

The topping

Next up is the peanut butter drizzle – mix two tablespoons of peanut butter with one tablespoon of warm water until it’s a nice smooth, runny texture.

Gently pour the peanut butter sauce over the pancakes and add some fresh chopped up strawberries with the stalks removed.

Now mix a further 2 tablespoons of peanut butter with some Lukewarm water until it is a nice runny sauce.  Chop up the strawberries or bananas and add to the source

The final step is to pour the mixture over the pancake and sit back and enjoy them with your dog
