Spoiling the Dog with Pumpkin Waffles: Day 4

dog eating pumpkin waffleWhen your best friend Sasha, a lab-cross, is staying for the week, Sunday brunch begs for waffles. Or the dogs do.

Yes, this is a recipe for dog waffles full of healthy pumpkin, rice flour (instead of wheat, so no gluten) and a squirt of that special waffle ingredient: salmon oil, because who doesn’t like a hint of fish with their waffle?

I broke out the waffle iron for this one (one I bought from a dog rescue silent auction fundraiser). Trouble is, I hadn’t used it before. One thing I learned: don’t over fill it, or you’ll be cleaning pumpkin waffle batter off the counter tops for days.

Pumpkin Waffles for Dogs

3 cups rice flour

2 eggs

1 cup canned pumpkin puree

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp baking soda

2 tbsp salmon oil

Mix all dry ingredients together.

Stir in wet ingredients. Mix well.

Pour into waffle iron sprayed with oil.

Cook according to waffle iron instructions and serve.

Clearly, I let these cool off a lot and cut them into pieces. I added a hint of real whip cream to Sasha’s serving but neither dog needed enticement to give them a try.

Victor didn’t eat all of his waffle at once – it was big – but he did eventually finish it, and more.

This recipes makes about four waffles, so invite the dog park crew. It’s brunch time.
