Making waffles for dogs is a fun way to make dog treats. I make them all the time, swapping out the typical dog-bone-shaped dog treats. I make sure that I use ingredients that are safe for both humans and dogs, so we can both enjoy them.
Christmas Tree Dog Waffles
For some festive fun this holiday season, I made some Christmas Tree Waffles for dogs. These easy-to-make and adorable tasty treats are perfect for serving your furry friend during the holiday festivities. I plan to make more and share them with my dogs on Christmas Day.
How To Make The Dog-Safe Green Waffles
There are many ways to make dog-safe green waffles. One way is to use dog-friendly green leafy vegetables such as kale, spinach, and collard greens. Another option is using green beans. Herbs like parsley and mint can also add a delightful taste. Simply mix your choice with water to make a green liquid.
In this recipe, I used spinach to make the dog waffles green.
Making Christmas Tree Waffles For Dogs
I have a standard round waffle maker, and typically, I cut each round waffle diagonally to create triangles.
However, for this recipe, I opted to use a heart-shaped waffle silicone mold. I stacked three heart-shaped waffles upside down to form a Christmas tree, just as I did in this recipe.
How To Make These Christmas Tree Waffles For Dogs?
It is easy to make: just mix waffle batter with the green liquid of your choice.
1. Waffle Dog Mix
For this recipe, I used Bark Bistro Pancake Dog Mix – Pooch Awesome Apple Pancakes flavor.
(You can create your own waffle dog mix by selecting the flour of your preference and incorporating some dog-friendly flavorings.)
2. For this recipe, I used Spinach Green Liquid = blending spinach with water. Adjusting the ratio by adding more spinach and less water intensifies the vibrant green color of the liquid.
3. Make the waffle mixture by following the Bark Bistro Pancake Dog Mix direction:
3/4 Pancake Mix
3/4 Cup of Liquid
4. Mix well and then pour the mixture into the waffle heart shaped silicone mold
5. Bake at 350 for 20 – 30 minutes
6. Let it cool and forn the Christmas Tree
Why I Use Bark Bistro Pancake Dog Mix?
I like how Bark Bistro keeps it simple with all-natural ingredients. For this dog pancake mix – Pooch Awesome Apple Pancakes flavor, they use oat flour, apple, cinnamon, and vanilla.
All Bark Bistro dog pancake mixes contain all-natural ingredients that are simply doggone good.
Bark Bistro dog pancake mixes are available on Amazon. We invite you to check them out, along with Bark Bistro Buddy Budder – dog safe peanut butter.
Ways To Decorate Christmas Tree Waffles For Dogs
In this recipe, I decorated the Christmas tree waffles with tiny slices of colorful carrots and used a dog chew stick for the trunk.
Other topping ideas you can use are:
Cheese (different kinds – cut into small pieces)
Fruits (like apples, strawberries, blueberries, banana – cut into small pieces)
Crumbled dog treats
So many exciting possibilities to add fun to your Christmas Tree Waffles for Dogs!
I will definitely make these Christmas Tree Waffles for Dogs again on Christmas Day and serve them as special holiday treats for my dogs.
