Cereal Pancakes For Breakfast

Fruity Pebble Pancakes are so good and simple to make with only a few ingredients. These pancakes are so eye-popping and when they are drizzled with syrup, they just melt in your mouth! Soft and crunchy at the same time means extra delicious!

Key Ingredients You’ll Need

All-Purpose Flour: All-purpose flour is best to use.  However, if you are using self-rising flour, you would eliminate the baking powder.

Granulated Sugar: Even though you don’t want to make your pancakes very sweet, you don’t want to skip the sugar. It gives the pancakes a hint of sweetness and brings the flavors together perfectly.

Baking Powder: Baking powder will help the pancakes rise. Use this to make your pancakes light and fluffy.

Milk: Use whole or 2% milk to add moisture to the recipe and add additional flavor.

Butter: It is best to use unsalted butter for this recipe. Using unsalted butter will give you control of the flavoring in the recipe. This will allow the rawest and natural flavor to come out in the recipe.

Fruity Pebbles: This is the main ingredient! I love putting them in the batter and on top as well!

Marshmallow Fluff: Marshmallow fluff is strictly for putting on top of your mountain of pancakes like a syrup. It makes everything better!

How To Make Fruity Pebble Pancakes

Step 1. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a medium mixing bowl and combine. Pour in the milk, melted butter, and eggs and whisk to combine.

Mixing the batter ingredients.

Fold in the fruity pebbles to combine.

Step 2. Place a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat and use spray oil or butter to grease. Scoop 1/4 cup of batter onto the prepared skillet and continue until you have enough without touching the pan. Cook your pancakes and once they begin to bubble after 1-2 minutes, flip and cook the other side for another 1-2 minutes.

Step 3. Take the pancakes out of the pan and place them in a warm area until you use all the batter. When you are finished, begin making the Marshmallow Fluff syrup.

Marshmallow Fluff

Step 1. In a medium heat-safe bowl, add the marshmallow fluff and melt for 15-20 seconds in the microwave. Heat a bit longer until you have the right consistency to drizzle on top of the pancakes. Make sure to watch carefully to avoid burning. It will also begin to expand, so you may need a bigger bowl than you think.

Step 2. Use a spoon to add the fluff on top of the finished pancakes and enjoy!
