This is a delicious marshmallow fruity cereal pancake recipe that’ll make everyone;s morning a little happier! Tender fluffy and irresistibly sweet pancakes with a touch of crunch, plenty of flavor, marshmallow bits and fruity rainbow colors. This is a super easy pancake recipe made from scratch in 15 minutes—a perfect treat the whole family will enjoy!
Oh yes this is indeed another pancake recipe. I seriously have a thing for pancakes. I mentioned this before, but I think it’s because I didn’t grow up eating pancakes. I used to live in Paris, and grew up thinking it’s all about the delicate French crepes—which I still devour! But..I missed out—missed out on those fluffy and tender breakfast pancakes. Now it feels like I’m making up for all those years and enjoying all the pancakes I can!
So what’s the big fuss with today’s amazing and crazy delicious marshmallow fruity pancake recipe? Sooo many things. To start off, they’re made using a new flavor of Post cereal—the Marshmallow Fruity Pebbles! So we’ve all had our share loving the fruity pebbles, now they’ve added bits of marshmallows in all kinds of fun shapes and flavors. Seriously my girls love it, and I secretly do too lol It has a nice crunch (from the fruity pebbles) and a soft chew from the marshmallows. The beauty of this cereal is, it has no cholesterol or trans fat, and it’s an excellent source of Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin A..which brings me to the other reason why this pancake recipe rocks.
Those lovely fruity pancakes offer some good value and boost to your average pancakes. And my favorite part is that they’re actually perfectly sweet so you don’t need any syrups or sauces (unless of course you want to 😉 ) The Marshmallow Fruity Pebbles have a sweet fruity taste that infuses wonderfully into the pancake so you don’t have to worry about sweetening them anymore (I tried adding just a touch of honey, and it was;t needed at all). I actually love topping the pancakes with just a touch of more cereal (for a delicate crunch) and some fresh berries. Pure pancake bliss.
Now these photos below are best to show you how simple this pancake recipe comes together. I make a batch of my favorite base pancake (the same one I used in these banana swirl cinnamon roll pancakes), and I ladle 1/4 cup measuring cup of batter into a non stick skillet (or griddle) over medium low heat. Then I spoon 2 tablespoons (more or less to your taste) of the Marshmallow Fruity Pebbles cereal over the pancake. I love taking a spoon and gently swirling the cereal into the pancake batter—not entirely covering the cereal with batter, but just a simple swirl. To me, this is ideal because most of the cereal is infused into the batter, but some parts of it are left out so they remain quite crunchy.
After that, all you need to do is flip the pancake and let it cook for a couple of minutes until it’s cooked through. Now for the record, you can easily fold the cereal into the pancake batter so it’s evenly dispersed and you’ll save yourself the few seconds of sprinkling and swirling the cereal into each pancake one at a time. But… I love it swirled this way because I love to feel the bite and crunch in the cereal in my pancakes. Feel free to try both options and chose your favorite 🙂
I can’t tell you guys how much we loved this pancake recipe! I mean you would think it’s a kid treat, but I found it perfect with my coffee and hubby thought the same! It’s the perfect balance of sweet, fruity flavors in a light, tender and fluffy pancake. So top that with an extra touch of crunch from the cereal and some fresh berries—how can you resist that!! I can’t urge you enough to give this pancake recipe a try—you will LOVE it 😉
Before I let you go with the recipe, can I just say that I shopped all today’s ingredients at Walmart! It’s one of the stores where I know I can find any ingredient I’m looking for, and I can bring my girls shopping with me because they can pick up a fun little toy to make shopping twice as fun 🙂 Enjoy!!
