Reindeer Pancakes Recipe for a Holiday Breakfast


What could be more fun than making Reindeer pancakes for breakfast on Christmas morning. Let the kids help make their own. Or maybe you want to make Snowman pancakes, which are even easier.  Our family loves making fun pancake shapes for weekend breakfasts.  Easy recipe and easy to make, kid-friendly too.

Items needed: 

  • Pancake mix
  • Eggs
  • Vegetable oil
  • Milk
  • Red food coloring
  • Green food coloring
  • Plastic squeeze bottles


Make pancake mix according to directions on package. Prepare batter using directions for 2 cups pancake mix. Divide batter into containers. For reindeer, mix ½ cup batter and 5 drops red food coloring. For green batter, use ½ cup mix and 4 drops green food coloring. Leave remaining batter as is.

Pour each color batter into a squeeze bottle. Heat griddle to medium heat. For reindeer, make a dot for eye, then add plain batter on top of eye to form a 2 inch circle. Add a red nose and a red collar. To form antlers, make a thin line touching head and then make a small branch coming from first part of antler. Antlers will spread, so only make a fairly thin antler.
