Does anyone use Buckwheat flour in recipes for dog treats? I have some, and hubby likes pancakes made with buckwheat, but I can't stand it. Buckwheat kernels taste sort of nut-like.

Found a couple of recipes on a website that call for buckwheat flour as an ingredient.

Curious to see if anyone has used it, and how did the dog like it?

I use to use Buckwheat flour for my dogs a number of yrs ago,
My Dogs use to love it too.

Lost all my old recipes in a house fire and totally forgot about using Buckwheat flour till I read your post,
Soo I Went to town and bought me some again today.

Gonna cook up some treats in the next few days again, See how my doggies of now like it.

Princess grabbed hers and took of to the bedroom, She has to eat all her treats on our bed.

What recipe do you use?

I made some today... in the oven as I type. hehe

Mixed some boiled Brook Trout with some sardines packed in water, enough buckwheat to hold it together. Smells real fishy. Will see how they like it.

Best I use buckwheat for, is crepes, filled with something savoury and sometimes toppped with an egg. Yummy and healthy!
