Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best temperature to make mini pancakes?
I prefer to cook my pancakes on medium-low heat. It reduces the chances of the pancake burning and helps it cook all the way through. If you were to cook it on high, you may most likely burn your pancakes without cooking it all the way through!
What can I top my cereal with?
You can top your mini pancake cereal with chocolate, sugar, and spice (and everything nice), ice cream or berries. You can also try yogurt, granola bites, and fruits for a yogurt parfait feel.
Can I try this while on a Keto diet?
Of course! All you have to do is replace the cup of all-purpose flour with a cup of almond or coconut flour and the sugar with stevia. You can top it off with berries, more stevia, cream cheese, or yogurt.
