This recipe is dedicated to our kindergarten students and all the students out there. In our classroom we hold a cooking class every Friday. Since we’re dealing with this crazy quarantine, I recorded a tutorial for them to make at home.

The recipe can also be made using a store-bought pancake mix or making everything from scratch like it’s explained in the recipe. You will need essential pantry ingredients, or feel free to replace those that you don’t have on hand.

Here’s some ingredients that you can replace when baking:

  1. Eggs: Use 1/4 cup of applesauce, unsweetened
  2. Butter: Replace for oil
  3. Sugar: Use maple syrup or for a sugar free version stevia.

For the toppings you can use anything that you have available. 

I hope you try this recipe and like it as much as much as I do! If you give this recipe a try, let me know what you think! Leave a comment and don’t forget to take a picture and share it on my Facebook page or tag it #thehungrydragonfly on Instagram! I love seeing your creations!
