Breakfast is good for the soul. We will live and die by that motto. ūüėČ I mean, we¬†are a breakfast company.

 

Today we are extra excited to share this 5-minute recipe with you because it is easy and delicious and sure to sweeten your day! (Pun intended there.)

 

Before diving into the recipe, though, let’s talk about these cute little puffy pancakes! Here at Good Food Made Simple, we call them Pancake Puffs, but you may have also heard the names aebleskivers or appleskives puffs, the Danish name for these. However, since we aren’t Danish and make ours in Belgium, we think Pancake Puffs is more fitting and much easier to say!

 

Now, let’s get back to this recipe!

 

Whether you’re looking for a quick weekday meal or something to enjoy on a slow Sunday while reading, these pancake puffs are it. But, just like most of the recipes we share, this one is also customizable to whatever your heart desire.

 

We opted to serve ours with raspberries and Nutella, but feel free to go traditional and top them with syrup, powdered sugar, a drizzle of nut butter, fruit, or even a side of vanilla Greek yogurt!

No matter how you top these fun little puffs, we know you’ll be addicted!

Pancake Puff Ice Cream Sundae Bowls

Pancake puffs¬†aren’t just for breakfast! Top them with melted dark chocolate, fresh summer fruit, and whipped cream to make a fabulous dessert!¬†

Pancake Puff Ice Cream Sundae Bowls

It may seem a little odd to think about serving ice cream for breakfast, but as parents with picky kids, sometimes we need to step outside of our comfort zone and let them indulge! And if you think this is too much, you can always swap the ice cream for your favorite yogurt! It will still feel just like a sundae, promise!

If you’ve been around here for a while then you know we have quite the love for pancake puffs and waffles! Yes, this recipe would also be just as delicious with waffles, too! More often than not, we opt for a savory breakfast, but when we are craving something sweet (or the kids¬†want a treat) this pancake ice cream sundae is the way to go! You will score bonus points for serving this!

We are all about “build your own meals” because it allows the kids to get creative with what they eat and feel like they are the ones making the decision. Sneaky, huh?

So, to create a breakfast sundae bar like this, you will need 1-2 bags of our pancake puffs as the base and can then run wild with the rest of the toppings. As mentioned above, you could swap the ice cream for a healthier breakfast option like yogurt, serve a variety of fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, mini chocolate chips, whipped cream, etc.! Let your imagination run wild!

This recipe also works as a healthier (and fun) alternative at birthday parties or sleepovers, too! Whether this is served to kids or adults, it is a guaranteed way to bring a smile to anyone’s face.

Pancake Puff Banana Split

Pancake puffs served on top of greek yogurt, a split banana and finished off with chocolate, fruit, sprinkles, and honey. A healthy spin on dessert pancakes!  

Are you ready to flip your traditional savory breakfast and give this sweet, almost dessert-like pancake puff banana split a try? We thought so! Who doesn’t love a good sweet start to the day?

Although we usually gravitate towards something savory, we do love a good plate of waffles, bowl of oatmeal, or pancake puff recipe! Dare we say that the pancake puffs might even be our favorite of the three? They just slightly outrank our oatmeal combos that are also pretty much like dessert.

Since our pancake puff ice cream sundae bowls were such a hit, we figured we would create a new spin that would be a bit more in line with breakfast. We must admit, the result was pretty sweet! (pun intended)

We swapped the traditional banana split ice cream for a high-protein Greek yogurt, then we added a banana because you can’t very well have a banana split without the banana! Then we added our pancake puffs, some fresh berries, cherries, mini chocolate chips (totally breakfast friendly, right?), sprinkles and a drizzle of honey for sweetness!

This is the perfect balance of protein and carbs to set you up for a long day! Or, you could serve this as a sweet ending to a long, tiring day. Nothing says happiness and comfort more than a banana split — in any form.

Get the kids involved in making them too! Let them help you create a ‘build your own’ pancake puff banana split bar by picking out the toppings and creating their favorite combo. We guarantee they won’t even know these are healthy-ish!

Pancake Puffs and Rainbow Fruit Platters

Pancake Puffs and Rainbow Fruit Platters aren’t just colorful, they’re healthy too! These colorful mini pancake puff and fruit trays are super versatile and easy to make.¬†

Pancake Puffs and Rainbow Fruit Platter

This breakfast platter is sure to make your mornings happy! Our Non-GMO Belgium Pancake Puffs are so easy to prepare. You pop them into the microwave for 30 seconds, sprinkle some powdered sugar on them and then serve them along-side your favorite fresh fruit. This vibrant platter also has some creme fraiche to take it up one more notch.

Michelle finished it off with a bit of fresh mint to elevate the flavors.

The combinations don’t just stop with fruit, though. You could also add fun things to this plate to take it from breakfast to a stunning dessert board. Melted chocolate, a Greek yogurt dip, melted peanut butter, etc. would all be excellent options. You could turn this brightly colored fruit platter into a sip on your favorite fondue board.

Getting the kids involved in creating Pancake Puffs and Rainbow Fruit Platters is also a fun way to help them learn to make healthy choices. They can help by picking out their favorite fruit and sprinkling the powdered sugar on the pancake puffs.

Instead of making one large platter, you could also use small salad plates so each child can create and enjoy their creation. Using maple syrup or a sweetened Greek yogurt dip will make eating both the fruit and pancake puffs so much fun for both kids and adults alike.

The only struggle might be getting them to eat something other than pancake puffs from breakfast moving forward.

Pancake Puffs and Rainbow Fruit Platter Ingredients:

1 bag Original Pancake Puffs

2 tbsp powdered sugar

2-3 cups mixed fruit of choice

1/4 cup creme fraiche

fresh mint, if desired
