How to make bunny pancakes.
Recently, Simple Mills shared its recipe for bunny pancakes. Using its Simple Mills Pancake and Waffle Mix, the process is relatively easy. While this recipe is not vegan because of the eggs, the use of the coconut oil is a little healthier ingredient choice.
More importantly, this recipe is bursting with fruit. Although many people might not use carrots on pancakes, it can be an option to spark some creativity. Even consider making some candied carrot bacon for this dish. It could be the tastiest decoration (and ingredient).
Lastly, this recipe is all about having fun. Everyone’s bunny is meant to look a little different. It can be part of the fun of this recipe. Whether one bunny has more whiskers or another bunny has some crooked ears, the most important thing is that the bunny pancakes taste good.
Here’s how to make bunny pancakes.
- 1 box Simple Mills Pancake and Waffle Mix
- 5 large eggs

- MIX together Simple Mills Pancake and Waffle Mix with eggs, almond milk, and oil until well combined.
- HEAT 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat in skillet or griddle.
