If you’re in need of a very colorful breakfast (literally), these Cap’n Crunch Berry Pancakes are perfect for you. While I can’t promise you that the “berries” in this cereal will provide you with the antioxidant quality of fresh berries, I can promise that they will wake up every cell in your body and get you berry pumped for the rest of your day. And not to mention, making these pancakes might just make you Snapchat and Instagram famous.

#SpoonTip: This recipe is marked as “medium” only because separating the colored berries was a little tedious, but don’t worry, it’s totally worth it.
