Dog Friendly Pancakes made from Chickpea Flour

The Easiest Gluten and Grain-Free Dog Pancakes Ever!

What's better than pancakes? Pancakes for dogs!

Who says pancakes are just for humans? Your furry friend deserves a special treat too! And what better way to spoil them than with some delicious, homemade dog pancakes? These delicious and woof-tastic pancakes are not only gluten and grain free, but they are also super easy and quick to make. So grab your apron and let's get cooking!

Ingredients: Gather these pup-tastic goodies!

Before you start flipping those pancakes, make sure you have the following ingredients on paw:

Pancake Base:

  • 100g Chickpea Flour - we got ours from the baking aisle in Sainsbury's 
  • 50ml OGGS Aquafaba Plant Based Egg Alternative (100% Liquid Chickpea Extract) OR 1 medium egg - we used the Oggs Egg Alternative for our pancakes as it is lower in fat compared to standard eggs which makes it a good alternative for pups who are prone to Pancreatitis.
  • Water as required

Topping Ideas:

  • Creamy peanut butter (make sure it's dog-friendly and doesn't contain xylitol, which is toxic to dogs)
  • Pumpkin Puree - we love the Hackney Dog House purees
  • Dog-friendly fruit like bananas, blueberries and strawberries

Instructions: Let's get cookin'!

Now that you have all the ingredients, it's time to whip up some doggy pancake magic:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the chickpea flour and either the Oggs solution or a medium egg together. 

  2. Gradually add water whilst whisking until you reach a pancake batter consistency. The batter should be smooth, pourable and drool-worthy.

  3. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. You don't want those pancakes sticking like dog hair on a lint roller. If you need to add some oil, we recommend Coconut Oil, especially for dogs with Pancreatitis as it is one of the only oils that can be broken down and converted into energy without the use of the Pancreas!

  4. Pour a ladle of batter into the pan for each pancake. Tilt the pan so the batter spreads evenly across the pan into a rough circle.  Remember, dogs don't care about perfect circles, so don't stress if they come out a little wonky.

  5. Cook the pancakes for 2-3 minutes on one side until bubbles start to form on the surface, then flip and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until golden brown. You'll know they're ready when your kitchen smells like a pancake paradise.

  6. Remove the pancakes from the pan and let them cool for a few minutes. You don't want your pup burning their precious little tongues. This is a great time to get your chosen toppings prepared.

  7. Decorate your doggy pancakes with your chosen toppings. Your pup is sure to be drooling whilst they wait! We decorated April's with a layer of pumpkin puree, banana slices, strawberry pieces, blueberries and finally a drizzle of dog-safe peanut butter.

  8. All that's left to do now is serve your amazing creation and watch your pup's tail wag with joy as they devour these scrumptious treats!

Now you have a stack of delicious, gluten and grain free dog pancakes that will make your pup's taste buds do a happy dance. These pancakes are perfect for a special occasion or just to show your four-legged friend some extra love. So go ahead, spoil your pup with these woof-tastic treats!


Happy baking puppers!

Disclaimer: While these pancakes are safe and delicious for most dogs, it's always a good idea to check with your vet if your pup has any specific dietary restrictions or allergies. Always check with your veterinarian before introducing any new foods into your dog’s diet. Every dog is unique, just like every pancake flip! Remember, these pancakes are a treat and should be fed in moderation.
