Indulge in breakfast for dinner with these yummy Vanilla and Cinnamon Pancakes! Your kids will love you for it and you won't be disappointed!

Our kids are always asking for breakfast for dinner. So, we decided to have a little fun and make these delicious and easy Vanilla and Cinnamon Pancakes!

We love pancakes for breakfast, but there is something special and exciting about having them for dinner! It's not something we do very often, so we try to reserve this sweet indulgence for special occasions. There are ways to make this meal healthier, like by adding some fruit to the pancake mixture or serving the pancakes with yogurt or a healthy protein side dish.


If you are celebrating a birthday or special occasion, you can get creative with your pancakes! In honor of New Yea's Eve last year, we made 2020 pancakes! And for fun this week, my kids wanted to spell "MOM" with their pancakes. See our  Pancake Letters and Shapes Craft for details.
