Sweet Canine Crêpes

Your dog will leap out of bed at the merest whiff of these sweet pancakes! The seeds provide important vitamins and minerals, including vitamins B and C and potassium, while adding a little canine crunch.

Sunflower seeds are rich in vitamin E and omega-6, keeping your dog’s skin supple including his paw pads. Raw, unsalted sunflower seeds are beneficial for circulation and can help control cholesterol, which plays a part in conditions such as diabetes, stress, liver, kidney and cardiovascular diseases.

Makes 5
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 20-30 minutes

125 g (4 oz) wheat and gluten-free flour
1 egg
150 ml (1/4 pint) cold water
3 bananas, mashed
4 tablespoons clear honey
2 tablespoons sunflower or pumpkin seeds

1. Combine the flour, egg and cold water in a bowl and whisk until you have a smooth batter. Heat a nonstick frying pan over a high heat. Add a spoonful of the batter to the pan using a ladle and spread the mixture to make a 10-cm (4-inch) disc.

2. Fry for 2-3 minutes on each side or until the crêpe is a light golden brown. Remove from the pan and lay on kitchen paper. Repeat with the remaining batter and leave the crêpes to cool.

3 Mix the bananas, honey and seeds in a bowl and stir to combine. Divide the filling mixture between the crêpes and fold them in half. Serve in your favourite dog bowl. Store leftover crêpes in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
