Crazy Pancake Recipes

These creative pancakes may just be your next staple

We eat pancakes so often that we have to mix it up on weekends. On Saturday mornings I like to try new recipes that are fun, healthy, and will cover Sunday morning, too, because Mama doesn’t cook Sunday morning. In this post I’m going to cover some of our more recent, favorite, new pancake recipes. A couple may sound a little crazy (banana and bacon?), but you will be shocked at how good they actually taste. (By the way, I usually sub extra-lean turkey bacon to keep it healthy.) The train pancakes are a hit with my boy, and the Meyer lemon pancakes are a huge hit with my daughter. But the watermelon pancakes are hands down the biggest hit in our house right now. Find out how to make watermelon pancakes and other fun pancake recipes below.

Brown Sugar Banana Bacon Pancakes

The sweet and salty combination will have your taste buds singing praises. For a healthier option I like to use uncurred turkey bacon with no nitrates and nitrites added.

What kid can resist an adorable pancake shaped like a watermelon? My two kids even like to help out. The 2-year-old may not make perfect "waterlemons," as he calls them, but he's very proud and gobbles them up.
