This quick breakfast recipe relies on store-bought pancake mix, and puts kids in charge of the final product. If you have older children, keep this in mind for a fun morning activity after a sleepover. Ingredient amounts below are unspecified, since each “pizza” will be different.
- Pancake mix
- Non-dairy cream cheese
- Jam or Jelly
- Chopped fresh fruit
- Shredded coconut
- Prepare pancake batter according to package directions. Cook on a skillet or griddle.
- Now let kids decorate their pancakes! Begin with a layer of cream cheese or jelly spread on top.
- Sprinkle with fresh fruit and coconut to taste.
My son’s favorite is pancakes spread with strawberry jam, and topped with a little coconut and chopped kiwi.
We also like winter wonderland pancakes: spread with cream cheese and sprinkled with coconut.
