Made with Love: Allergy-Friendly Raspberry Chocolate Chip Pancakes

2 Feb

{Warning: Spoiler for Daddy}

I keep skipping over the super bowl and keep thinking about cooking activities the girls and I can do for Valentine’s Day.  In the past I have never been a huge fan of Valentine’s Day but since having kids I find myself enjoying it more and more.

We were running late to take Maddie to school.  I had to get Pela dressed quickly and didn’t have a chance to feed her breakfast.  I bought Cherrybrook Kitchen Pancake mix a while ago and wanted to make them for the girls.  Since Pela and I had some time while Maddie was at school, I thought it would be fun to cook breakfast together as a trial for our Valentine’s Day breakfast for Daddy.  Although Pela is still a little young, she had a great time preparing.  She needed a lot of assistance and direction, often sneaking bites of the ingredients.  Regardless of the mess and some missing ingredients, which I easily replaced, she made a great pancake mix and will be a perfect activity for the girls to do together on Valentine’s Day morning for Daddy.

Cherrybrook Kitchen has a variety of  allergy friendly mixes, cookies, and icing.  Their products are peanut, egg, tree nut, and dairy* free.  They also have wheat and gluten-free mixes.  Maddie has a lot of friends with various allergies.  I plan on using Cherrybrook Kitchen to make raspberry and chocolate chip cupcakes for her Valentine’s Day party. You can find their products in the baking section at Whole Foods or check their website for a store near you.  Try Cherrybrook Kitchen, the pancakes were delicious.  We can’t wait to try their other products.

Allergy-Friendly Raspberry Chocolate Chip Pancakes Recipe

What you need:

  • Mixing bowl
  • whisk
  • 1 cup Cherrybrook Kitchen Pancake Mix (followed directions on box to make 7 pancakes)
  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tsp Milk, rice milk, or another dairy alternative depending on your needs (we used low-fat milk)
  • 2 1/2 TBS Enjoy Life Semi- Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 cup raspberries
  • 4 Strawberries cut into a heart shape
  • non-stick pan
  • cooking spray, vegetable oil or butter (we used Pam Original Cooking Spray.

Made with Love

Directions:

  • Prior to doing with your child, especially with a younger child, have everything measured out so all the child needs to do is pour it out.
  • Cut strawberries into heart shapes, I found the link after I had already made them. Put them to the side until ready to cook pancakes.
  • Make Pancake batter with your child by stirring together  Pancake
  • Next, add chocolate chips and mix into batter.
  • Add raspberries, as stirring mash a little.
  • For cooking instructions, see back of box. Directions can be found at their site too.
  • I added a strawberry heart to center of pancake as they cooked.  They didn’t turn out as pretty as I had hoped so I left some of the hearts and placed them on top after the pancake was cooked.
  • After they cooled I used pink Wilton Sparkle Gel to decorate.  Your child could decorate too.

If the heart in the center doesn't turn out as planned use a cookie cutter for a heart pancake.

Ready to eat! On pancake #2

    You always have such cute ideas and delicious treats. You make cooking look fun and I can’t wait until my lil one is old enough to help me cook. Maybe it’ll force me to get my butt in gear, as well as, enjoy doing it. Your pancakes are the perfect Valentine treat for kids.
