Fun Thanksgiving Themed Turkey Pancakes

Fun Thanksgiving Themed Turkey Pancakes

A couple of weeks ago I shared a quick post on my Instagram with a fun Thanksgiving pancake project my kids and I like to make this time of year. Today I thought I'd share a more detailed recipe for how to make them. We have a lot of fun making (and eating) them. They're a quick and easy breakfast for Thanksgiving Day too. (I mean let's be honest; if you don't want to make pancakes from scratch you can easily create these from a boxed pancake mix too.)


1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk (if you're feeling fancy, you can use buttermilk)
2 eggs
strawberries, sliced
bananas, sliced
mandarin oranges or clementine slices
pineapple chunks

Preheat a pan or griddle over medium heat. (You can add coconut oil or butter to the pan to prevent sticking.) Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Stir in milk and eggs. Whisk until combined into a batter. Pour batter onto pan or griddle, creating one set of larger circles (turkey body) and one set of smaller circles (turkey head). Cook until underside is golden brown, then flip and do the same on the other side. Let all pancakes cool slightly. For each turkey, place one small pancake on a large one and decorate using the fruit. Eat! (For an added protein boots, you can add 4 scoops of Vanilla Healthy Height per 2 servings, as I explained in my Instagram post.)
