Warning: This is Not a Healthy Breakfast...S'mores Pancakes

In our school district we have a Fall break and I love it!
We get one week off in October.
A great way to recharge, travel and have fun.

Usually we head out of town, but this year we just hung out.
My son was begging me to make pancakes...
or rather begging me to let him make pancakes from scratch.
He's old enough to do this with supervision...so I said OK.


One morning (way too early for a vacation week)
we got up and he decided he was making S'mores Pancakes.
Now, normally when I make pancakes,
I add flax seeds and use whole wheat flour and try to health-ify them.
BUT I figured as a treat,
I would let him have at his creation...and here it is...

S'MORES PANCAKES
INGREDIENTS
You can use a Pancake mix (packaged) or homemade recipe.
Joe used the recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook with a few adjustments.

DRY
1 1/2 cups flour - Joe used 3/4 cup all purpose flour and 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

WET
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk (Joe used coconut milk, but you can also use fat free milk)
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
2 Tablespoons canola oil (or coconut oil)

GOODIES
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup mini marshmallows
4 squares honey grahams, crumbled

Here's a shot of the original recipe

MAKE IT!
  • Sift together dry ingredients (OK, I confess we just through it in a bowl and whisk it all together)
  • Beat the egg
  • Add vanilla, milk, and oil to the egg and mix.
  • Add the wet to the dry ingredients and combine thoroughly.

  • Heat griddle or large pan and spoon about 1/4 cup batter on the hot griddle.
  • Place 4-5 mini marshmallows on each pancake.
  • Sprinkle the top with 1 teaspoon mini chocolate chips.
  • Sprinkle the top with graham cracker crumbs.
  • Flip when the pancakes start to get bubbles on them.
  • (Joe actually added a mini chocolate bar to the center of each pancake  - just for fun!) 
  • Finish cooking...and
ENJOY your decadence in the morning!



Thanks to my sweet Joe for this delicious treat!

  1. Holly,

    My mommy used to make something like this in the early 60's.. had them during lent and on nights when she wanted the children to dine prior to her and dad dining. Don't blame her as 6 kids were a handful at any table.. and some peace during a late meal always relaxes one.

    Yumm.. now I'm wanting some with butter on top.. you brat!

    hugs,

  2. That sounds so good ... my kids will be begging for them! Can we call them healthy since Joe used half wheat flour? :)
