With Shrove Tuesday upon us (Tuesday 16th February), it’s time to whip up some batter, flip up a feast and tuck into an obscene amount of pancakes. Now your four-legged friend can join in on the fun with this tasty dog-friendly recipe that even you can eat!

Quite possibly one of the best foodie days of the year, Pancake Day is a time where we can completely indulge in sugary, buttery goodness without feeling too guilty about it. But as with all foodie days, pet owners can’t resist giving their dogs a treat too.

Fortunately, Head Vet Sean McCormack at has whipped up a delicious pup-friendly pancake recipe, so you can make sure your dog doesn’t miss out on the tastiness.

Carrot & Chickpea Pup Pancakes

Makes: 16 pancakes

Prep: 10 minutes

Cook: 15 minutes


  • 100g cooked chickpeas (drained, tinned chickpeas are fine)

  • 1⁄2 small carrot (about 50g), grated

  • 2 eggs

  • 100g self-raising flour

  • 150ml oat milk

  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil


  1. Put the chickpeas in a food processor and whiz for a few seconds. Add all the remaining ingredients except the oil, and whiz again until blended.

  2. Heat a little of the oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Spoon a heaped tablespoon of batter per pancake into the pan, leaving a little space in between. Fry the pancakes for 2–3 minutes on each side until lightly golden.

  3. Plate up and allow to cool a little, and you’ll have your dog barking for brekkie.

  4. Store the pancakes in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days, or freeze, separated by sheets of greaseproof paper, for up to 3 months.
