The fourth of July really snuck up on us this year! We have been doing so much with moving in,getting things organized, both our jobs, and taking care of Raylee. I wanted a really easy fourth of July breakfast.
We went to our town’s fourth of July celebration and had some really good Hawaiian food. After I was too tired to go to the store so we didn’t have much in the house this morning for breakfast. But I really wanted to make something festive!
I really like pancakes with berry compote, but we didn’t have any berries in the house. 😦 I checked the pantry and found these red, white and blue sprinkles and decided we could at least spruce up our pancakes.
Making the pancakes
I used pancake mix to keep things simple on a holiday morning. I was SOOOO excited to find out that Kodiak Cakes now makes dairy free protein pancake mix!! So delicious and nutritious.
I like to add butter to the frying pan so the pancakes crisp up well, then skip adding butter once it’s on my plate. And I ALWAYS use real maple syrup, because it’s like in a whole different ballpark from imitation!
The trick to good sprinkle pancakes is to let the pancake cook a little extra on the first side. Then sprinkle on the sprinkles right before you flip. That way they don’t have as much time to bleed. I just used some sprinkles I had on hand, but bigger sprinkles like these cute red white and blue stars would work even better.
I hope you enjoy this easy twist for a festive fourth of July breakfast! Check out an easy way to serve jigglers to babies and toddlers!
