Most mornings I have a hard time leaving the house to go to work. I love the mornings in our home, our daughter will wake up & I will hear her sweet little voice calling out to us. “Mama, Dada, I awake.” I will go into her room and see that sweet smiling face & my heart will just turn to putty. She will jump up & wrap her arms around my neck & if I have time we will spend a few minutes together before I have to run off to work. On the weekends, I am excited that I do not have to leave this lovely scene, I get to stay home & enjoy my time with my family. Today was a little different. I was hoping that it was still Friday & that it was time to go to work. No such luck. It was indeed Saturday & my daughter really was having an epic meltdown. We are not going to get into details that is for another day, but it was brutal. Things just did not seem to be going our little girl’s way & she did not quite know how to handle it. It took a bit to calm her down, but she finally started to slowly snap out of it. A meltdown like that required a little extra cheering up, so mommy made a special treat for Mai for breakfast in hopes that we would get to see our smiley girl again.
Fruity Pebbles Pancakes
1 cup of all purpose flour
1 cup of crushed Fruity Pebbles
1 tbsp of brown sugar
2 tsp of baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 large egg
1 cup of milk
2 tbsp vegetable oil
Directions: Pour the Fruity Pebbles on a plate or a bowl & smash with a potato masher or spoon to make crumbs. Put aside. In a large mixing bowl add the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, milk & vegetable oil and stir well. In a mixing bowl, beat the egg & add to the rest of the batter. Stir in your Fruity Pebbles crumbs until evenly distributed. In a frying pan or griddle set to medium heat, (Test with water, water drops should dance across the surface when added. Lower or higher temp if needed) pour about 1/8 of cup for small pancakes or 1/4 cup for regular sized. When pancakes bubble, flip and cook the other side until golden brown.
It got Mai’s and Daddy’s stamp of approval & even put a smile back on my sad girl’s face. Two thumbs up, mama!
These look so good and would totally get my stamp of approval here, too. And I feel your pain, I am on my iPad doing a few quiet things this morning while both of my girls are sleeping and Lily so of course sleeping next to me in bed. I just got yelled at in her sleep that I was blowing my nose too loudly – definitely going to be an interesting Sunday morning here!
Yeah, I always right my posts the night before & post. So this was actually yesterday. She was on a tear. She was extremely upset over an incident with potty training & a bag of Skittles. Stay tuned…I’m sure I will write about that for tomorrow. Lol! Good luck. I hope your girls are easy on you today & you get a peaceful Sunday. 🙂
Oh yes, I know those weekends. Sometimes I can’t wait for Monday so I can go to to work and relax! LOL The pancakes look great. I think they will be a perfect breakfast treat for my boys while we are on vacation!
Happy I found your blog through the Wake up Wednesday linky!
Thank you. They were fun to make too. Thanks for the follow. I am following you on Bloglovin too.
Oh lord my boys would love this!!!
My daughter and husband both loved them. I was actually more shocked by how much the hubby loved them. Lol! He’s like a big kid.
How Cute! I think kids would really love to have these at a sleep-over 🙂 Thanks for sharing your idea at Wake Up Wednesday!
Thank you. They were a big hit in our home.
My friend has told me about a restaurant that serves Cap’n Crunch pancakes, I think I will have to try both kinds of cereal.
NO way! Captain crunch is my favorite, especially the peanut butter kind. Oh my! That will be my next experiment. YUM!
These are so cute and look like they were a lot of fun to make! 😀 I kinda want to buy Fruity Pebbles now just to try this out, haha. 😛
They are fun, easy and really good.
I’m going to have to try this one. This is my Hubby and older daughter’s favorite cereal 🙂
Thank you. Please let me know how they come out. 🙂
