Martin Luther King Pancake Breakfast

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

We thought it would be fun to make Martin Luther King Pancakes for breakfast to celebrate his birthday this Monday! We live at the birth place of Martin Luther King here in Atlanta, GA. We always have fun making “People Pancakes” even though they might not look exactly like them. It’s a fun way to talk with your kids about how important Martin Luther King and many other historical figures were to our history in America!

MLK Pancakes

Pancake Mix
1 Stacker Marshmallow (Jet-Puffed)

We mixed a little bit of cocoa in our pancake mix. We made a oval shape with our mix in a pan over low heat. We made another small pancake to use for the face details. We trimmed off the edges from the large pancake using kitchen scissors. We cut out the nose, lips, & ear from the smaller pancake. We cut blueberries in half for his hair, mustache, eye brows, & pupils. We cut a stackers marshmallow in half and cut around the edges to make his eyes.

Here is my little 2 year old with his Martin Luther King pancake!

We have made a TON of fun pancakes, but here are some of our other Historical People Pancakes that we have made in the past….
