Carrot & Chickpea Pup Pancakes

Dog friendly 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


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.

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.

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

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.
