This is the ultimate healthy pancake, despite still tasting just as delicious as ones with more ingredients. If you feel the need to spice it up a little, add a mixed berry compote.

The pancake version of scrambled eggs, this is something I would never have expected to be so tasty. It's especially great for kids, since you need to cut their pancakes into bites anyways. 

12. Dutch Apple Pancake

Danielle Chen

While this kind of pancake isn't made in the kind of way that we would traditionally imagine it, it tastes just as good. Apples & pancakes together are amazing. 

13. Double Dark Chocolate Reese's Puff Pancakes

Everyone loves Nutella, so it only makes sense to add it to our pancakes. Plus, rumour has it this recipe is the perfect hangover cure. 

16. Lucky Charms Pancakes

Elise Fegler

Everyone just ate the marshmallows out of the Lucky Charms box anyways, so a pancake with just the marshmallows is the perfect nostalgic trip. 

17. Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Emma Lally

These pancakes are a healthier twist on regular chocolate chip pancakes. Want the chocolate but also want to cut down on a few calories? These are the pancakes for you. 

18. Strawberry, Banana, and Granola Pancakes

My everyday breakfast is a strawberry yogurt parfait with bananas and granola. This takes that perfect breakfast and turns it into pancake form. 

19. Apple Pie Pancakes

These epic pancakes definitely fall under the category of sugar, spice, and everything nice. With cinnamon, apples, and brown sugar, these pancakes are everything you could ever ask for. 

20. Banana Nut Pancakes

Another healthy pancake recipe which uses bananas, but with the addition of some nuts to add a little extra protein. This recipe is absolutely delicious with some berries on the side.

There are so many different options for pancakes, allowing you to adjust for exactly your taste. These are all super easy to make and most of them are great for all ages. Please your family, house guests, or just yourself with some delicious pancakes for your next breakfast.
