Our Favorite Mickey Mouse Pancakes

Easy Mickey Mouse Pancakes

Okay, so I've shared this recipe before. I'm not usually a fan of recycling content unless it's something I update or change, like tweaking a recipe. This is the exact same recipe I shared in the past, BUT, you guys, we are going to Disney World in a few weeks and I am so excited. I have never been to Disney in my life. I honestly knew nothing about it until a couple of months ago. (I thought it was all one big park. I had no idea it was four parks. That's how much of a newbie I am.)

We're only going for a few days before heading to the beach, but we are making my kids' dreams true with it and I'd be lying if I said we weren't in Disney mode already. We've been making these pancakes a lot, and in honor of our upcoming trip, I'm sharing them with you today. 

Healthy Mickey Mouse Pancakes

Serves 4

2 cups organic all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups organic milk (soy and almond milk work too)
2-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 eggs
2/3 cup plain Greek yogurt (full fat works best)
Coconut oil or butter
Bananas, sliced
Pure maple syrup or honey

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, use a whisk to combine milk, vanilla extract, and eggs. Pour into dry ingredients and stir well. Once combined, add the Greek yogurt. Heat a griddle or large pan to medium heat and melt enough coconut oil to adequately cover the surface in order to prevent sticking. For each pancake, use either a mixing bowl with a spout, a pitcher, or a ladle to pour batter, first to create the face, then to create two ears that will be attached to the face (at 10 and 2, if you're looking at the face like a clock). Make sure when you pour the ears that they just barely touch at the edges between the ears and the face to allow room for the pancake to expand. Flip once the underside is golden brown. Repeat until you've used up all of your batter, and remove from griddle or pan when each cake is golden on both sides.

Then comes the fun part - decorating. We use blueberries for the eyes and sliced bananas for the nose. Any fruit you have on hand works. Drizzle with maple syrup or honey.
