Breakfast is a great time to get creative in the kitchen. If you have a picky eater, these pumpkin pancakes are not only fun (so they may actually eat them), but also healthy.
Taking the ordinary pancake from plain to jack-o-lantern is a simple way to transform a meal.
- 2 cups Pancake Mix
- 1 1/3 cup Water
- 1 tbsp Canned Pumpkin
- 1 Strawberry halved, per pancake
- 6 Candy Corn per pancake
- 2 Chocolate Chips per pancake
- Whipped Cream
- Non-Stick Cooking Spray per pancake
Prepare the pancake batter, add 1 tbsp of canned pumpkin, and mix thoroughly.
Heat a griddle or frying pan to about 350 degrees and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Pour your pancakes onto the griddle or pan and cook using package directions.
Once your pancakes are cooked to your desire, place one pancake in the center of the plate. Place dollops of whipped cream on the pancake to create the two eyes and the smile.
Use the candy to form the smile into the whipped cream, the strawberry to create the nose, and the chocolate chips to create eyes.
Serve warm with syrup or whipped cream.
