Give breakfast a sweet spin with these cinnamon roll pancakes
The most important meal of the day just got a *major* upgrade with these amazing pancakes. Gooey, sweet and super scrumptious, they taste just as delish with the dairy-free substitutes listed below. Whip these up for brunch with your besties or Sunday morning breakfast with your fam!
To make these, you will need:
-6 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
-1 teaspoon cinnamon
-4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter (optional)
-2 ounces cream cheese, at room temp
-3/4 cup powdered sugar
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1/4 cup non-dairy yogurt
-1 tbsp almond milk
-2 tbsp powdered sugar
-1 cup all-purpose flour
-2 teaspoons baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1 cup milk (dairy-free: use water or unsweetened almond milk instead)
-1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
-Stir the brown sugar and cinnamon together and set aside.
-If desired, melt the butter on the stove using low heat. When melted, turn off the heat.
-Whisk in cream cheese until the mixture is almost smooth. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Set aside.
-Mix together the non-dairy yogurt, almond milk and powdered sugar until smooth. Set aside.
-Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Next, whisk in milk (or dairy-free substitute), egg and oil.
-Heat a nonstick skillet and coat with cooking spray. Use a measuring cup to scoop the batter into the pan.
-When the pancake begins to look bubbly, sprinkle the cinnamon filling on top so it looks like a cinnamon swirl.
-Wait 2-3 more minutes until the bubbles start to pop and the pancake looks golden brown on the bottom.
-Flip the pancake and cook until done—the other side will be golden brown.
-Once cooked, drizzle glaze over pancakes and enjoy! Makes 8 pancakes.
