🔪 Step-By-Step Directions
It's so simple to make these green St. Patrick's Day breakfast pancakes.
First, mix the batter. For the homemade pancakes, mix all the dry ingredients first. Then make a hole in the bowl and add the wet ingredients.
Mix until smooth.
Add about 2 teaspoons of green food dye to start. Mix until the color is evenly distributed. Add more dye to achieve the green hue that you want.
Then fry the pancakes on a griddle. Each side takes about 2 minutes. When you see the batter fill with little bubbles, it's time to flip.
To serve, with whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles.
- 2 cups flour
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 cups almond milk, oat milk, or dairy milk
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- green food coloring
- whipped cream, for serving
- rainbow sprinkles, for serving
- In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
- Make a hole in the center and add the milk, oil, vanilla, and eggs. Mix until smooth. Add food coloring until the green you'd like is achieved.
- Melt 1 tsp butter over medium heat on a griddle. Fill a soup ladle halfway with batter and pour onto the griddle.
