Easy to make and totally delicious — these Doggy Silver Dollar Pancakes are quickly becoming a weekend staple in my house. They’re not only a special treat for my two dogs, but for me too! Yup, that’s right. I like to make a small batch and share them with my fur kids. Because get this: They’re just one banana, one egg, and a little almond flour mixed together!

A Look At The Ingredients
Banana – Bananas are chock full of potassium, fiber, magnesium, vitamin C, and vitamin B6! They’re deemed a healthy snack for our canine companions. Plus, I love adding them to puppy baked goods. Check out our full spotlight on the benefits of bananas for dogs in our Food Facts article HERE!
Egg – While the egg acts as a binder in this recipe, it’s also rich in protein, provides vitamin D, and is packed with other beneficial nutrients.
Almond Flour – Also used as a binder in this recipe, almond flour is both gluten-free and grain-free (perfect for dogs who suffer from intolerance).
I like to make these Doggy Silver Dollar Pancakes on a griddle because it provides a large, flat surface. You can make the whole batch at once! If you’re in the market for a griddle, this is the one that I use (and not just for dog treats, but also many of my favorite breakfast dishes)!
Tips For Success
- Pre-mash your banana! While I use a hand mixer to combine all of the ingredients, I’ve noticed pre-mashing the banana with a fork helps to eliminate any fine lumps and clumps the mixer may miss.
- As tempting as it may be to make these Doggy Silver Dollar Pancakes a bit larger — more like a full-size pancake — I recommend keeping these small. Since there’s not a lot of flour, they tend to get a bit fragile when they’re too big.
Doggy Silver Dollar Recipe
Doggy Silver Dollar Pancakes
- 1 medium/large banana
- 1 large egg
- 2 tablespoons super-fine almond flour
- Coconut oil, for greasing the griddle
- In a mixing bowl, mash banana with a fork.
- Add egg and almond flour. Use a hand mixer to thoroughly combine.
- Heat griddle to a medium heat and grease with a little coconut oil.
- Use a tablespoon to ladle perfectly-sized silver dollar pancakes.
- Let cook for a minute or two. Keep an eye on the heat as these tend to burn easily if too high. Once lightly brown on the bottom, flip. Then, let cook for another minute or two.
- Let cool and serve to your pooch!
- Since I have small breed pups, I like to break these silver dollar pancakes in half before offering them to my dogs. It just makes it easier for them to gobble.
- Store in an airtight container or Ziploc bag in the refrigerator up to 3 days.
