Saint Patrick’s Day Pancakes

Cooking for Kids

Saint Patrick’s Day is next week. Instead of buying green bagels for breakfast, I like making green pancakes for my Nanny Kids on Saint Patrick’s Day. I love using the colorful Lucky Charms cereal marshmallows to decorate pancakes for the kids. Simply use your favorite pancake mix to make this easy holiday breakfast or follow the easy directions to make pancakes from scratch below.

You Will Need:

1 1/4 to 1 1/2 Cups Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
2 T. Sugar (optional)
3/4 tsp Salt
1 1/2 Cups Milk
1 Egg
2 – 3 T. Oil
Green Food Coloring
Lucky Charms Marshmallows
Whipped Cream (optional)
Maple Syrup (optional)

What to Do:

1. Mix the dry ingredients together, then add the milk, oil, eggs, and food coloring.

2. Mix well and try to get some of the lumps out of the batter, but don’t over mix.

3. Heat a skillet on medium heat. When heated, pour about 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup of pancake batter into the frying pan to make individual pancakes.

4. Cook on one side until the top begins to bubble, then flip the pancake over and cook on the other side.

5. Serve with maple syrup, whipped cream, and Lucky Charm cereal marshmallows.


  1. Great idea!
