What You’ll Need

For the Pancakes

  • White Whole Wheat Flour – This flour gives you all of the nutritional benefits of whole wheat flour wth a more mild flavor. You could use regular whole wheat flour  to increase the fiber and nutrient content, but the pancakes will have a stronger wheat flavor and denser texture. Alternatively, you could use all-purpose flour for lighter, fluffier pancakes. 
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Canola Oil
  • Buttermilk – To keep these indulgent pancakes on the lighter side, use low-fat buttermilk.
  • Mini Chocolate Chips
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Crushed Graham Crackers

Toppings

  • Hot Fudge Sauce or Nutella
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Graham Cracker Crumbs

Recipe Tip

Make Your Own Buttermilk: If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, you can easily make your own. For each cup of milk (whole or 2% works best), add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar. Stir and let it sit for about 10 minutes. The mixture will slightly curdle and thicken, mimicking the consistency and tanginess of buttermilk, perfect for giving your pancakes that fluffy texture.

How To Make S’mores Pancakes

  • Preheat Cooking Surface. Start by heating your griddle or non-stick skillet over medium heat to ensure it’s ready for the batter.
  • Mix Dry Ingredients. In a large bowl, combine the white whole wheat flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Then, stir in the mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, and crushed graham crackers to distribute them evenly throughout the mixture.
  • Add Wet Ingredients. Pour in the canola oil and low-fat buttermilk into the dry ingredients. Mix everything together until just combined, taking care not to overmix to keep the pancakes light and fluffy.
  • Cook the Pancakes. Scoop about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake and pour it onto the preheated cooking surface. Wait until bubbles form on the surface and the edges begin to set, then flip the pancakes and cook for an additional two minutes or until golden brown on both sides.
  • Serve with Toppings. Once cooked, serve your pancakes warm. Top them with a generous drizzle of Nutella or hot fudge sauce, sprinkle with extra mini marshmallows and graham cracker crumbs for the full s’mores effect.

Recipe Tips & Tricks

  • Make Your Own Buttermilk: If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, you can easily make your own using ingredients you already have in your kitchen. Milk and vinegar or lemon juice together mimic the consistency and tanginess of buttermilk, perfect for giving your pancakes that fluffy texture.
  • Avoid Overmixing: To keep your pancakes fluffy, stir the batter until just combined. Overmixing can make the pancakes tough and chewy.
  • Consistent Heat: Maintain a medium heat setting throughout cooking to ensure even browning without burning the pancakes.
  • Prevent Stickiness: Lightly grease the griddle or skillet to ensure the pancakes don’t stick and flip easily, preserving their perfect shape.
  • Variety of Toppings: If you’re not a s’mores purist, consider topping with peanut butter, caramel sauce, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for different flavor twists.
Can I make these allergen-friendly?

Easily modify the recipe to be gluten-free by using gluten-free graham crackers and flour, or make it dairy-free with almond milk and vegan chocolate chips, ensuring everyone can enjoy this delightful treat.

How do I keep pancakes warm when making a big batch?

To keep pancakes warm as you cook more batches, place them on a baking sheet in an oven set to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. This keeps them warm and ready to serve without drying out.
