It's the latest food trend to blow up Instagram and it's the perfect way to jazz up your breakfast: pancake cereal!

Pancake cereal is exactly what it sounds like, mini pancakes that you can customize, add in milk and eat in cereal form. Nutritionist Ashley Reinke-Hawk shared her new plant-based recipe with California Live.


  • 1 cup flour, preferably whole wheat
  • 2 tbsp of sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Ziploc bag, sandwich sized
  • Optional toppings: chocolate chips, fruit, nuts, sprinkles


  • Put all the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking soda) in a bowl and stir together into thoroughly incorporated.
  • Pour the wet ingredients (almond milk, apple cider vinegar) into the dry ingredients.
  • Stir the wet and dry ingredients together.
  • Once stirred together, let the mixture stir for five minutes so it has time to rise so it is nice and fluffy.
  • Heat up your skillet.
  • Add a small amount of plant based butter to the skillet.
  • Put a Ziploc bag into a cup.
  • Pour your batter into the Ziploc bag and cut off a corner of the bag so you have a makeshift pastry bag.
  • Pipe out mini pancakes onto the skillet. The pancakes should be a little smaller than the size of a dime.
  • The pancakes should only take a two to cook at a low to medium heat.
  • Add the pancakes to a bowl and customize.
  • You can add fruit, sprinkles, chocolate chips or nuts. Remember to add your milk of choice.
