S’Mores Pancakes for One are the perfect breakfast treat when you’re craving the classic flavors of a campfire s’more but want to enjoy them in the comfort of your own kitchen.
This single-serving pancake recipe combines the irresistible combination of graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate into a fluffy and indulgent pancake.
You’re cooking for yourself or looking to surprise someone with a delightful breakfast, these S’Mores Pancakes are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.
So I’m a little late coming to the s’mores party that food bloggers have been attending for the past year or so…
… but now that I’ve arrived, I certainly won’t be the first to leave!
Actually, I just remembered these S’mores Crispy Bars I made a while ago; I had completely forgotten about those! And I did profess my adoration of combining graham cereal and chocolate chips as a s’mores inspired snacky dessert.
So, I guess I have actually posted a couple of s’mores-style desserts.
But today I want to talk to you about breakfast.
Pancakes to be precise.
Chocolate pancakes studded with graham cereal (Three Sisters Graham Crackerz cereal).
Chocolate pancakes studded with graham cereal and smothered in an all-natural marshmallow creme sauce.
Chocolate pancakes studded with graham cereal, smothered in an all-natural marshmallow creme sauce, and finished off with additional graham cereal & a scattering of grain-sweetened chocolate chips.
The marshmallow creme sauce aside, these pancakes actually taste more like breakfast than dessert.
The pancakes themselves are not very sweet, but they do have a rich chocolate flavor thanks to unsweetened cocoa powder. The cereal – which is a healthier version of Golden Grahams – is sweet but not overly so, and adds a nice crunch to the pancakes.
As for the marshmallow creme sauce, (which consists of all-natural marshmallow creme + a touch of water), it is undeniably an indulgent ingredient for breakfast, but it is also totally necessary in order to replicate the classic s’mores treat.
Make these on Saturday morning. Don’t share.
Then make a double batch on Sunday morning to split with your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife/kid/mom/dad/roommate.
S’mores for breakfast? Heck yeah!
|S’Mores Pancakes for One
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
2 tsp cane sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
tiny pinch of salt
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 egg white
1/2 cup low fat buttermilk, well-shaken
1/4 cup coarsely crushed all-natural graham cereal, such as Three Sisters Graham Crackerz (available at Whole Foods)
canola oil cooking spray
2 Tbsp all-natural marshmallow creme, such as Tiny Trapeze
1 tsp warm water
Prepare the Pancake Batter
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, graham cracker crumbs, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well to combine all the dry ingredients.
Whisk Wet Ingredients
In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, vanilla extract, egg, and melted butter until well combined.
Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps in the batter are okay.
Heat the Griddle or Pan
Heat a non-stick griddle or skillet over medium heat and lightly grease it with butter or cooking spray.
Cook the Pancake
Pour the pancake batter onto the hot griddle to form a 4 to 5-inch round pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, which should take about 2-3 minutes.
Sprinkle mini marshmallows and chocolate chips evenly over the pancake while it’s cooking. Allow them to slightly melt into the pancake.
Flip and Finish Cooking
Carefully flip the pancake using a spatula and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the pancake is golden brown and cooked through.
Transfer the S’Mores Pancake to a plate and sprinkle crushed graham crackers on top for that authentic s’mores flavor.
Dig in while the pancake is still warm to enjoy the gooey marshmallows and melted chocolate. You can also drizzle some maple syrup over the top for an extra touch of sweetness.
