Kids love pancakes, plain and simple. With a pat of butter and drenched in maple syrup, this meal never fails to delight. Even frozen pancakes are pretty good, especially when they’re served on a school day. Sure beats out a boring bowl of oatmeal.
If you want to whip up something fast for the kids before they head to school, pick pancakes. Use the pre-made frozen kind for convenience, and the meal is halfway made. With these extra touches and add-ons, the kids will be impressed with your culinary skills. You’ll just be happy they’ve got something warm in their bellies before school.
Banana Walnut Pancakes
Heat up the pancakes as directed and top with sliced bananas, chopped walnuts, a sprinkle of brown sugar, and a dash of cinnamon. Some pancake syrup for dipping adds another sweet touch. Simple and satisfying, this combo is a classic.
Cherry Berry Pancakes
After heating up the pancakes, top with sliced strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and a few maraschino cherries. You can also warm up some jam and pour over top.
Sweet And Sour Pancakes
Warm up the pancakes and top with a dollop of sour cream, then drizzle with honey. The flavors are fresh and fantastic together. If you don’t have sour cream on hand, Greek yogurt or even whipped cream cheese works well.
Peanut Butter And Jelly Pancakes
When the pancakes are ready, take two and spread some peanut butter and jelly on one of them. Top with the other pancake for a twist on the PB&J sandwich. The kids can even take it to go.
