Smores Pancakes

Who doesn't love s'mores?   

Sitting around a warm, cozy campfire on a crisp, fall day...roasting marshmallows....and sandwiching them between 2 graham crackers...having that Hershey's chocolate bar ooze down your fingers.  Mmmm..there's nothing like it.  Especially --- with peanut butter.  In case you didn't know, I have a HUGE peanut butter obsession.   I put it on everything... especially pancakes.  But anyways, this was inspired by my s'mores cake I made a few months ago, which turned out phenomenal.  The pancakes are the #1 pancake recipe on, but I substituted graham cracker crumbs for the most of the flour, and added some brown sugar.  I was nervous the graham cracker crumbs would make the pancakes too grainy, which is why I kept some of the flour.  I was also scared the marshmallows would melt or burn, but they turned out to be melt-in-your-mouth perfection.  I got the sipping chocolate at Whole Foods (a bazillion times better than that Swiss Miss junk), and decided to sprinkle it on top...oh was so good.  My parents and I licked our plates clean.

Yield: 4 servings
(about 8 pancakes)

3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons white vinegar
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
2 tablespoons butter, melted
chocolate chips
mini marshmallows
*chipotle spice sipping chocolate (optional)
*peanut butter (optional)
*graham cracker crumbs for garnish (optional)
*whipped cream (optional)
cooking spray


  1. Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to "sour".
  2. Combine graham cracker crumbs, flour, sugars, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk egg and butter into "soured" milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, sprinkle with marshmallows and chocolate chips (and sipping chocolate, if you have it), and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.
  4. Serve with peanut butter, graham cracker crumbs, and/or whipped cream if desired.
