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!

We get along quite well 😉

So as I’m staring at my husbands Girl Scout cookie stash (the samoas!), the “best of both worlds” guy and I come up with this. It’s got the crunch of a cookie, and classic taste of a samoa. (I even added peanut butter! oh my!) However, these are a little messier, but that’s just more fun 🙂 Here’s another break down for you!

5 samoa girl scout cookies: 10pp
5 apple ring samoas (w/ pb): 4pp

Umm … yes. Plus, the apple rings are so much bigger. And 99% of the time, bigger is better. The other 1% are my hips; definitely bigger is not better here …
