Delicious Things to add to your Pancakes to Elevate your Breakfast

One of the best parts about being a kid was waking up to the smell of freshly made pancakes on a lazy Sunday morning. While it’s different being an adult, no one is saying you can’t still treat yourself by making delicious pancakes for breakfast. This especially rings true for National Pancake Day! Here are just a few ways for you to liven up your morning with delicious add-ins to your favorite breakfast:


  1. Chocolate Chips

This sweet treat will make any morning delightful! Adding a few chocolate chips to your batter will allow the chocolate chips to melt into the pancakes as they’re cooking. Who doesn’t love a bit of sweetness added to a favorite morning meal?

  1. Blueberries

Blueberry pancakes are a classic breakfast option. The tartness of the blue berries are balanced out with the sweetness of the batter and create a perfect melding of two flavors for early risers. Paired with a delicious mixed berry syrup this is a great part of a balanced breakfast.

  1. Chopped Nuts

Everyone will go nuts if you add nuts to your pancakes! A robust taste is what you’ll find when you add cashews, walnuts, and almonds to your morning. Who doesn’t like a hearty tasting pancake? When you go nutty for nuts make sure you add them to your pancakes for a whole new experience!

  1. Oatmeal & Raisins

If you like oatmeal raisin cookies then you’ll love oatmeal raisin pancakes! This healthy twist on a breakfast favorite is bound to bring delight to any dull morning. Just mixing in dried oats and raisins to your batter will be a big hit with the healthier people in your life.

  1. Banana

Go bananas for banana pancakes! Adding a sweet fruit will liven up the taste of any morning breakfast. Fruit like bananas are already part of a balanced breakfast so why not make it part of a balanced pancake as well? Add mashed banana to your pancake batter for a fruitful taste you won’t forget!
