Equipment

  • baking sheet
  • oven
  • bowl
  • whisk
  • pipping tip or mini cookie cutter

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour or the same amount of a gluten-free flour or almond flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar or the same amount of monk fruit
  • 1 large egg at room temp
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter melted (or 3 tbsp oil for a dairy-free version)
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk or plant-based milk for a DF version

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (219 degrees C). Spray with cooking spray or grease with butter a 13-inch (33 cm) baking sheet.
  • Make the pancake batter (about 5 minutes). Either whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, and sugar) with the wet ingredients (milk, eggs, melted butter) or blend all in the blender until homogeneous. Pour the batter onto the greased baking sheet.
  • Let batter rest (for 10 minutes). Bake -- place the baking sheet in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes or let batter bake until set.
  • Cut -- Let it cool and then use either a piping tip or a mini cookie cutter to cut into mini pancakes, about ¾- inch (1,9 cm). Serve – place pancake cereal in a bowl and serve with a pat of butter and a drizzle of maple syrup and/or with milk and fruits.
  • If desired, toast the mini pancakes to achieve a crispy top. To do this, heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, melt a small amount of butter or spray cooking spray on the bottom of the skillet, and toast the mini pancakes until golden brown (about 1 minute). Then serve!

Recipe Notes

How long does pancake batter last?
For up to 3 days in the fridge (place into an airtight container or plastic bag).
Can you freeze and reheat it?
Yes! Place cool pancakes into an airtight container or Ziploc bag. Freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight, then reheat as follows:
  • Stovetop: Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, reduce the temperature to medium-low and melt 1 tablespoon of butter or spray with cooking spray. Add the pancakes and toss them until crispy and golden brown.
  • Oven: Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet pan with parchment paper and arrange the pancakes in one single layer. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the pancakes are heated through.
  • Microwave: Heat on a plate, covered with paper towel, for about 30-60 seconds or until hot. Eat immediately!
