I was searching the web for a recipe for brown sugar oatmeal pancakes (there are a bunch of those!) and I stumbled upon cinnamon roll pancakes. Back up the wagon! Cinnamon roll + pancakes = YUM!
I'm going to link up to the recipe I used as inspiration~ 1) because she has nice pictures so you can see how delicious they look and 2) because I took no pictures since my family was scarfing them down faster than they were cooking!
I did customize it to our tastes though:
- I used my favorite pancake recipe but I added vanilla and cinnamon to the batter. (Maybe a teaspoon of each)
- After I added the cinnamon swirl, I sprinkled finely chopped pecans onto the pancake. Ohhh yeeeahhh.
We ate these with maple syrup, but I think next time I'm going to make a really thin cream cheese frosting to drizzle over the top.
My family loved these so much they asked for them for breakfast this morning and I even heard rumblings of how good these would be on Christmas morning instead of our usual cinnamon rolls. They really take no more time than a regular pancake and are so special.

These are a keeper for sure!
