Valentine’s Day Breakfast

We love holidays around our home. One of the favorite ways we celebrate is with a special breakfast. I usually make pancakes in the shape of whatever holiday we are celebrating.

So for Valentine’s Day, we have heart shaped pancakes.

You can start with whatever pancake mix you normally use.

I like to add in an essential oil or two like Cinnamon and Orange to the mix.

Then you can either make the heart shaped pancake using a heart cookie cutter

…Spray the cookie cutter to make it easier to get loose, but generally have a hard time getting them out of the cookie cutters so I just free hand the heart.

You can add sprinkles or top with whip cream and strawberries.

My guys especially love it when I serve this as breakfast in bed.

It is just another way to say “I love you” and “You are special!”

Happy Valentine’s Day!

  1. I actually made heart shaped pancakes today for my kids too (and even added chocolate chips!). Love the idea of adding oils – cinnamon would be delicious.
