Easy dog-friendly pancakes

Shrove Tuesday is just around the corner – hands up who’s wondering how to make a dog-friendly pancake! Well, you’re in luck…

We’ve put together this super quick and fuss-free recipe, so you can whip up a batch of pancakes for your dog to enjoy on the day. 

Made with potassium-rich banana, these dog-friendly pancakes are gluten-free and grain-free. You can find some topping inspiration below too!


1 x ripe banana

2 x eggs

½ tsp of coconut oil or sunflower oil


  1. Mash the banana into a bowl with a fork
  2. Add the eggs, and whisk until a smooth batter is formed (you can use a blender for a super-smooth mix if needed)
  3. Heat the oil in a frying pan
  4. Place the mixture into the pan using a ladle and fry gently on a low-medium heat
  5. Flip the pancake halfway through cooking (about 4 mins on each side)

Dog-friendly pancake topping suggestions:

  • A small spread of natural (xylitol-free) peanut butter
  • Dairy-free yoghurt
  • Blueberries
  • Sprinkle with kibble or your dog’s favourite treats – Good Dog treats or Cold Pressed Rewards would work here!
