Ingredients

You need a few simple ingredients to make the cutest red nose Rudolph pancakes:

  • Milk
  • Egg
  • Coconut sugar
  • Butter
  • All-purpose flour
  • Oat flour
  • Baking powder
  • Blueberries – Used for eyes and antlers.
  • Raspberries – used for Rudolph’s red nose.

Step by Step Instructions to Make Rudolph Pancakes

Prepare the Batter and Cook the Pancakes:

  • Whisk the egg.
  • Add the melted butter, milk and mix.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the flours, sugar, and baking powder.
  • Combine dry and wet and gently mix the batter.
  • Heat a skillet over low heat, add a little butter or coconut oil to grease.
  • Using a spoon, scoop 2 tablespoons to make the Rudolph faces, 1 tablespoon to make the smaller nose circle and ½ tablespoon to make each ear.
  • Wait for bubbles to appear, flip and finish cooking.
  • Repeat making Rudolph pancakes or switch to making regular pancakes. For littles I use 1 tbsp batter for each pancake.

Assemble / Decorate:

  • Place 1 large circle to form the Rudolph face, add the ears and smaller circle for the nose/mouth area.
  • Add blueberries to make the antlers and eyes and a raspberry to make the red nose.

Storage Instructions

These pancakes can be refrigerated for up to 3 days and frozen for up to 3 months in an airtight container or Ziploc bag. Defrost overnight in the fridge or place them in the microwave or toaster.

Serving Suggestions and Substitutions

This recipe is a healthier version of American Pancakes, it does contain a small amount of sugar. If you plan to serve these pancakes to babies or kids < 2 years of age you can try my Banana pancakes that are sugar free!

  • Milk: You can replace almond milk for your milk of choice.
  • Oat flour: If you wish, instead of using ½ cup oat flour and ½ cup all-purpose flour, you can substitute for 1 cup all-purpose flour.
  • Butter: You can replace it for vegetable oil if desired.
  • Coconut sugar: You can replace for brown sugar, or simply omit it and drizzle a little maple syrup on top.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What makes a Pancake Light and Fluffy?

Baking powder is a chemical leavening agent that creates bubbles when the pancakes are cooking. These bubbles allow the pancakes to rise and stay fluffy.

What is the secret to good pancakes?

Don’t overmix the batter.  You want to gently mix the batter until uniform, overmixing can lead to a tough, chewy pancake due to gluten formation.

Should pancake batter be runny or thick?

Pancake batter should be thick enough to drip off the spoon instead of pouring too easily onto your heated surface.
