Are these pancake and fruit kabobs cute or what? All you have to do to create this beautiful breakfast presentation is simply make silver dollar pancakes ( recipe follows) and assemble on a skewer with strawberries, blackberries or any fruit or berry of your choice. Top with an easy recipe for homemade butter pecan syrup ( recipe follows) and enjoy.
This fun recipe is from a blog called, Michelle's Tasty Creations.
Michelle' Tasty Creations is my partner this month for this month's Surprise Recipe Swap. As a participant, I was secretly assigned to go through Michelle's blog, select a recipe to make, and not post it until today, which is the day all the participants reveal their recipes. All the recipes can be viewed at the roundup
I was so glad to be introduced to Michelle's blog. She has a ton of fabulous recipes, and they are so well organized that everything is so easy to find.
I had a ball going through her recipes.They all looked so good! I was very tempted to try many of her recipes including my favorites for Old Fashioned Potato Salad , her recipe for Old Fashioned Cinnamon Vanilla Rice Pudding, her Sweet Cherry Smoothie, and her real food Broccoli Cheddar Soup,( which were all easy to make gluten free) , but I kept coming back to these mini pancake and fruit kabobs. I have grandchildren, and I thought they would love them !
Michelle's recipe for pancakes easily adapted to gluten free by just changing the flour which I changed to oat flour which I made myself in the Vitamix. I simply put gluten free oats ( I get them at Trader Joe's) in the Vitamix and whizzed 2-3 times. It instantly turned into flour.
Michelle also had a recipe for a butter pecan syrup that did not need any adjusting since all the ingredients were already gluten free.
I made the syrup first, then the pancakes and then assembled.It was easy to do and looked super!! The butter pecan syrup was outstanding and complemented the fresh fruit. I didn't have any strawberries , so I used the fresh blackberries and opened a bag of frozen berries from Trader Joe's .

I will definitely be a regular visitor to Michelle's blog, and I know I will be trying lots of her recipes. The Broccoli Cheddar Soup is next on my list to try.

Here's what you need for the Pancake Kabobs:
1-1/2 cups flour ( I used oat flour that I made in my Vitamix. )
1-1/2 Tbs. sugar ( or other substitute)
1 Tbs. baking powder
1 egg, at room temperature ( or egg substitute)
3 Tbs. butter, unsalted, melted
1-1/4 cups milk, ( or milk substitute) I used coconut milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup fresh strawberries, quartered ( I didn't have any- would look more colorful with the strawberries)
1/2 cup fresh blackberries, washed
Mix the oat flour, baking powder, and stevia in a bowl and set aside. In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients and add to the dry. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to ladle out the batter for each mini pancake onto a greased electric fry pan . Allow the little bubble to form and pop and then flip. Cook a few more minutes on the other side until done. Makes about 30 silver dollar pancakes. Assemble onto skewers starting with a pancake, a peice of fruit, and then a pancake and peice of fruit. My skewers were short, but you could find longers skewers for a longer kabob.
Homemade Butter Pecan Syrup:
1 cup maple syrup of your choice, I used Trader Joe's Organic Pure Maple Syrup
2 Tbs. butter
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
Comine ingredients in a pot, bring to a boil and then simmer on very low heat to let the flavors mingle for about 5 minutes.
