Dog pancakes, anyone?


Pancake Day is here and we plan on going all out to mark the occasion. That means getting the whole family involved, including our furry best friends. Here are some need-to-knows about dog pancakes, plus a tasty recipe that’ll guarantee a waggy tail…

Are pancakes safe for dogs?

Provided that your pup doesn’t have any allergies or intolerances to the ingredients, they can be. While dog-friendly pancakes won’t do your dog any harm, we still wouldn’t recommend going overboard!

Below, we’ve outlined a super simple recipe for your canine companion. But before we dive in, here are some pancake toppings to be sure to avoid…

Harmful dog pancake toppings to totally avoid:

  • Chocolate
  • Nuts
  • Dairy cream
  • Honey
  • Syrup
  • Raisins
  • Sultanas
  • Grapes

    • Drizzle of olive oil
    • Mixing bowl and spoon
    • Frying pan
    • Ladle


    1. Mix the flour, egg and water in a bowl
    2. Add a drizzle of olive oil to your pan and bring to a medium heat
    3. Use the ladle to scoop a portion of batter into the pan
    4. Cook for 30 to 40 seconds – when the edges start to colour, now’s the time to flip!

      Dog pancake toppings your pup will love

      • Peanut butter (make sure it’s Xylitol-free, as Xylitol can be toxic to dogs. Peanut butter with just a single ingredient – peanuts! – is best.)
      • Banana
      • Apple
      • Chopped up veggies
      • Doggie biscuits

      Chef’s tip! Swap plain flour for a gluten-free variety if your dog has an allergy to gluten or wheat. Check with your vet if you’re not sure.
