If you have been around the blog for a while then you know that I fall solidly in the “semi-homemade” camp when it comes to cooking. I love to cook and bake but being a busy mom of three I also appreciate the ease of premade mixes, etc. So on the weekends when I make pancakes I usually use a ready made mix. Ready made doesn’t have to be boring though, today I’m sharing ten different awesome pancake add-ins to your regular box mix for a super special breakfast (or dinner!)
Chocolate Strawberry Pancakes: Stir in 1/2 cup diced strawberries and 1/2 cup chocolate chips before cooking
Banana Pancakes: Add sliced banana to partially cooked pancakes before flipping
Bacon Pancakes: Oh yeah! Add chopped bacon to pancake batter or pour batter over full slices for a surprising savory treat!
Peanut Butter Pancakes: Add 1/3 cup peanut butter (or any nut butter) to batter prior to cooking.
Pumpkin Pie Pancakes: Add 1/3 cup pumpkin puree and 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice to batter before cooking.
Apple Cinnamon Pancakes: Add 1/3 cup applesauce and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to batter prior to cooking.
Apple Cinnamon Pancakes, Take 2: Add 1 finely diced Granny Smith Apple and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to batter prior to cooking.
Triple Berry Pancakes: Add 1 tsp vanilla and fresh or thawed frozen blueberries, raspberries, and diced strawberries to batter prior to cooking.
Maple Nut Pancakes: Add 1/3 cup chopped walnuts and 2 tablespoons maple syrup to batter prior to cooking.
Island Pancakes: Add 1/3 cup crushed pineapple (drained), 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 3 tablespoons shredded coconut to batter before cooking.
