Let’s make pancake roll ups. Pancakes are a big part of our breakfast…especially on the weekends for our family. We pretty much tried every pancake recipe on the planet and were looking for something different. So, we rolled our sleeves and came up with our own pancake recipe – Pancake Roll-Ups, because when it comes to kids – it’s all about the presentation, isn’t it?

Here are the easy steps in making this pancake roll-ups recipe!

Step 1

In a mixing bowl, mix all the pancake recipe ingredients. Make sure that the mixture is not too thick or too thin.

Step 2

Melt the butter in a pan and cook your pancakes.

Step 2

After cooking the pancakes, spread some chocolate spread on each of them. I made my own (by melting 1 bar of dark chocolate in the pan on low heat) because my kids have nut allergies. You can use Nutella or any other chocolate spreads. I believe Peanut Butter would be P.E.R.F.E.C.T. here too.

Step 3

Put banana on the pancake and roll it.

Step 4

Tips in making perfect pancakes for the roll-ups

For these pancake roll-ups, you can use your favorite pancake recipe. Just make sure the pancakes aren’t too thin or too thick. Somewhere between crepes and fluffy American pancakes. If you see they are coming out too thick just dilute the batter with some water or milk. If they are too thin add some more flour.

I hope you enjoy your breakfast with these pancake roll-ups and start the day with a lot of happy faces and full tummies.
