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!

Summer is right around the corner and gooood watermelon will be available everywhere! I plan on eating lots and lots of (Knox Co.

Something that I can enjoy without having a huge party (even though that would be fun 😉 )

I wanted to start with a “pie” version. It’s the perfect size and it’s delicious … and refreshing … and FILLING!  One slab of “pie” is only 1pp … no matter how thick your slices are!! & being a girl watching her weight and tracking those points, watermelon is my new best friend 🙂 Plus, there are soooo many variations you could do with this: top it with your favorite fruits of the season and enjoy guilt free.
