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.

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!

(I also added some other ideas/uses for the whipped cookie butter below 😉 You know, in case there’s no chocolate cups around …)
