Dog-Friendly Pancakes: You & Me Dog Valentine’s Brunch

Nothing says love like pancakes shared.

Who doesn’t love pancakes? No one, that’s who. That’s why today we’ll be making pancakes for you, and dog-friendly pancakes for your pooch!

I don’t know about you, but for me, Valentine’s Day isn’t necessarily about romance.

I think it’s the perfect day to be thankful for the happy relationships you have in your life – be it with your partner, your family, or even your pets. It’s all about enjoying the LOVE that you have in your life.

So, to create the perfect budget-friendly and stylish Valentine’s brunch you and your pup can enjoy together, I’m sharing not one, but TWO pancake recipes.

Now when you wake up on February 14th, you can go ahead and pamper yourselves, relax and embrace this happy day with a yummy brunch and delicious pancakes.

First up, our dog-friendly pancakes recipe!

DIY dog-friendly pancakes


* Makes 10-12 small pancakes.
* Use a love heart shaped stainless steel cookie cutter and be sure to grease the inside to ensure the batter doesn’t stick.
* If you only have plastic cookie cutters, cook the pancakes as normal and then cut out heart shapes once cooked.
* Milk and butter can be substituted with other dairy free variations for dogs with allergies.

And just because everyone deserves a bit of loving on Valentine’s Day, here is the perfect pancake recipe for you and your loved ones! It uses almost exactly the same ingredients as the doggie pancakes, so more time for Valentine’s Day cuddles.
