Mini Pancake Cinnamon Rolls, Cinna-Maple Drizzle

cinna buns

These Mini Pancake Cinnamon Rolls with a Cinna-Maple Drizzle are a fun new way to enjoy a “pancake” breakfast – make them into kid-approved Cinnamon Rolls! I had a memory of being a kid and loving to roll up my pancakes and stick them on my fork. They looked like lovely pancake roses or silly snail spirals. Wee, this is a fun recipe that kids can assemble all by themselves once mom or dad set-up the proper food tools. Pancakes have never been so silly-licious! Get my recipe and step-by-step “how-to” slide show! Have a fun yummy weekend morning..

Fruit Kabobs too! This recipe is fun when paired with fruit kabobs. For the kabobs, you basically need to slice up chunks of colorful fruit and toss them in lemon or lime juice. Kids that are big enough to handle a wooden toothpick or skewer can make their own fruit kabobs – and even dip the fruit in some of the leftover Cinna-Maple Drizzle!
