PANCAKE ADD-IN INGREDIENTS:
You can either fold in these add-in ingredients or sprinkle them to the top.
Chocolate chips: Milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, white chocolate and mini chocolate chips. A combination of chocolate chips is always delicious too.
Nutella: add spoonfuls of Nutella to the pancakes and then swirl them with toothpicks.
Peanut Butter: add peanut butter to the batter or spread on top of pancakes. You can also use peanut butter chips.
Jam: spread on top of your pancakes instead of maple syrup for a fruity sweetener.
Diced apples and cinnamon: makes for a delicious spiced combo!
Fresh fruit: diced strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and bananas are all great add-ins.
Chopped nuts: gives the pancakes a crunch. Pecans, walnuts and almonds are some of my favorites to add on pancakes.
Brown sugar and cinnamon: this will give the pancakes a cinnamon roll flavor.
Honey: extra sweetness or can be used in place of maple syrup.
