Most people have heard of chocolate chip pancakes and blueberry pancakes. But, these breakfast pancakes really have changed the pancake game forever!

Oreo PancakesDessert For Breakfast? Why Not! Dessert Inspired Pancake Creations To Get Your Morning Started!


1/2 cup non-dairy milk

1/2 cup flour

1.5 teaspoons baking powder

¼ cup dark chocolate cocoa powder (or regular)*

pinch of salt

1 Tablespoon sugar (or other sweetener)

1 Tablespoon oil

1/2 teaspoon vanilla


1.5 cups unsweetened coconut flake

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

2-3 Tablespoons coconut milk (or other non-dairy milk)*

2-3 Tablespoons powdered sugar (optional )

FROSTING - Using a food processer, mix the coconut flakes until they form coconut butter. Scrape down the sides as necessary. It may not come to a full paste but it should be near creamy. (Start your pancake batter while it's mixing)

Once creamy, add vanilla and powdered sugar and mix again.

While the mixture is processing, add in splashes of coconut milk until it resembles a creamy frosting that retains a little thickness.

BATTER - Heat a skillet over medium-low heat.

Mix milk, oil and vanilla in a small bowl and set aside.

Whisk the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, sugar and salt in a separate bowl until combined.

Add the liquid to the dry and mix with a wooden spoon until just combined. Add a touch more milk if it's too thick.

Drop small scoops of batter onto the lightly greased skillet. When bubbles start to peak through the surface and you see a bit of light browning/crisping up on the underside, flip the pancakes over carefully, about 2-3 minutes.

Repeat on the other side, remove from the pan.

Top pancakes with as much frosting as desired. I found a small spoonful between each later was plenty.

Smore’s PancakesDessert For Breakfast? Why Not! Dessert Inspired Pancake Creations To Get Your Morning Started!

Makes: About 6 Pancakes that are 5” in diameter

Chocolate Pancakes

½ cup Whole Wheat Flour

½ cup All Purpose Flour

2½ tsp. Baking Powder

1 tsp. Salt

2 tbsp. Cocoa Powder

2 tbsp. Brown Sugar

1 Egg, lightly beaten

1 ½ cups Milk

3 tbsp. Melted Butter

Marshmallow Sauce

1 cup Marshmallow Fluff

2 tbsp. Water

½ cup Graham Crackers, crushed (For Topping)

To make the pancakes, whisk together the wheat flour, all purpose flour, baking powder, salt, cocoa powder, and brown sugar. Make a well in the center and add the egg, milk, and melted butter. Whisk together until fully incorporated and smooth.

On medium heat, lightly oil a skillet, griddle, or frying pan. Make sure the pan is fully heated before cooking the pancakes. Pour about ¼ cup of the batter on the pan in rounds. I used a cupcake scooper to make them the same size. Bake until bubbles form in the batter and then flip the pancake. Cook until lightly browned on both sizes (it will be hard to tell once they have lightly browned because they are chocolate but do your best to watch the pancakes until they look finished). Continue with remaining batter.

To keep the pancakes warm, place in a low temperature oven (about 125 degrees F). or you can place in cake pan covered in foil.

To make the marshmallow sauce, combine the marshmallow fluff and water in small saucepan. Heat up the mixture over medium-low heat until it as liquefied. Transfer to a small bowl to serve.

Top the chocolate pancakes with the marshmallow sauce and crushed graham crackers.

Birthday Pancakes!Dessert For Breakfast? Why Not! Dessert Inspired Pancake Creations To Get Your Morning Started!

1 yellow cake mix, plus ingredients to make a cake

1/4 cup sprinkles plus some for sprinkling on the icing

1 tub store bought vanilla frosting

birthday candles


Mix the cake mix according the package instructions.

Ladle on full ladle or 1/2 cup batter onto a pre heated griddle ( I had mine at 300 degrees).

Cook until bubbles appear.

NOTE: Be patient, these are a lot more tender then a pancake made with pancake batter.

Wait until the pancake is almost cooked through before turning.

Once you have turned the pancake over lightly press with your finger in the center and if the pancake springs back it is done.

For cake effect pile the pancakes onto a cake place.

Spoon the icing into a microwave safe bowl and cook 15 seconds.

Stir, drizzle over pancake pile, add sprinkles and candles.
