cinnamon vanilla rainbow pancakes

Jan 18, 2015

Sometimes I like to take my kids by surprise on a Saturday morning and steal the role of the fun parent. Yesterday was that morning. Pancakes are by far their favorite breakfast treat, but add some food coloring and it takes breakfast to a whole new level. I posted this picture to my instagram yesterday and thought why not share it here also...with a recipe attached!
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk (I use coconut milk, but you can use regular, or even almond)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 egg
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
food coloring

-Mix together flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a small bowl. In a larger bowl combine milk, vegetable oil, egg, and vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture to your wet ingredients and whisk until very few lumps. 

-Grab as many smaller bowls as you need depending on how many colors you want to make. Divide your batter among the bowls, and add food coloring. 

-Heat a skillet over medium heat, throw a little butter in there, once melted start making those pancakes. I make small ones for the kids so they can fit more colors on their plates. 

There you have breakfast food!

It should also be noted that if you have pancake mix in your pantry you can always just add some cinnamon and vanilla to that if you don't want to go the full homemade route. I am all about simple.
