cinnamon & sugar pancake bites

cinnamon & sugar pancake bites | my skinny sweet tooth

I’ll tell you right now. When these babies were baking in the oven, they smelled like deep-fried elephant ears! Remember those? Do they even still make those at the fairs and such? Or what about churros? Maybe this could also be called churro pancake bites. Mmmm … see what happens when I start thinking about food: a chain reaction starts. One minute it’s pancakes and the next it’s a mexican dessert. Either way, these are delicious and guilt free. Kids will love them as they can dig in with their hands. Who am I kidding? Hands are the best utensils …

So for breakfast, brunch or late night dessert, it’s always a great time for pancake bites. In addition, the possibilities are endless! Consider stuffing each puff with a chocolate morsel and dipping them in caramel sauce. What about using bananas and walnuts and making a banana bread pancake bite? See, endless!

I’m absolutely obsessed with this flavor combination: rosemary & raisin. It all started with these. I always have a box in my pantry. If you’re near a Trader Joe’s and you haven’t tried these yet, put them on your grocery list. NOW. You can thank me later. 🙂

But on to breakfast …
I’ve been wanting to put those two flavors together for a while now. As I was looking in my pantry this morning trying to figure out what kind of pancakes to have, I spotted the raisins. Then, I remembered there was fresh rosemary in the fridge from when I wanted to make something (not sure what yet 😉 ). So, 10 minutes later, rosemary raisin pancakes were born and it was a moment I’ll cherish forever. Ha! They are really that good. Topped with some maple cream and they were a memorable breakfast. Can’t wait to make these for my mom. (She loves those crisps, too) Continue reading “rosemary raisin pancakes”
