I'm thrilled to share this peanut butter free/oats free recipe for Puppy Pancakes, made these especially for our dog, Winter. These pancakes are not only easy to make but with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. This dog friendly recipe is perfect for dogs with specific food allergies.
Winter's Allergy Journey
Winter faced a challenging phase of severe skin allergies since she was a puppy, leading to distressing symptoms such as accessive itching and hair loss, resulting in what we called a "rat tail." You could clearly tell she was very uncomfortable in her own skin, and despite trying various remedies like allergy shots and medications, relief was just temporary plus we didn't want her on any additional meds if she didn't need them. We ended up doing a comprehensive blood allergy test revealed surprising sensitivities, including an unexpected allergy to salmon and we were giving her salmon oil thinking it was helpin. We were pretty shocked with the dog allergy test results, Winter's allergies extended beyond proteins to include peanut butter, oats, and pea flour—common ingredients in almost every dog treat and recipe. So I am always looking for healthy dog treats recipes for her that everyone can enjoy!
I promise this is a very simple and easy recipe, you can include to your weekends with your pups!
Here are the ingredients you'll need and this will make about 4 pancakes
Spelt flour (you can also use whole wheat) - great ancient grain that is easily digestible for dogs
Egg - not only this will provide extra protein but they are packed with a great source of linoleic acid, Vitamin B2 and B12 and water-soluble Vitamin A – all of which are wonderful for your dog's skin and coat.
Flax seeds- packed with fiber, protein and healthy fats which is great for their digestive system and coat health
Pumpkin- provides a rich source of fiber, aiding in digestion, promoting optimal gut health, and alleviating both constipation and diarrhea. Don't use the pumpkin pie mix.
1. Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix before adding the wet ingredients
2. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. I used a 1/4 measuring cup to scoop the batter into the pan
3. Let it cook about 1-2 minutes on each side or until you see it is firm enough to flip
4. Allow the pancakes to cool before serving
toppings are optional, we used raspberry but you can do bananas, strawberries or blue berries. Enjoy!
Let's continue to pamper our furry friends with love through tasty and straightforward treats. 🐾💖 Share your thoughts or suggest treats you'd like to see next. Happy cooking, dog parents!! 🐾👩🍳
