Did you know you can buy bags of Lucky Charms marshmallows? It's my childhood dream come true! I always wished for more marshmallows in my bowl of cereal as a kid.
These green pancakes made with Lucky Charms Marshmallows are such a fun and sweet treat. Some of the marshmallows go in the batter and the rest on top when serving. Our favorite way to eat them is topped with freshly whipped cream and sprinkle the marshmallows over top.
The pancakes are made from an easy homemade recipe we've been using for years, from my other website, Hot Eats and Cool Reads. You could also use boxed mix to make the pancakes if you have some on hand.
This breakfast is quick, simple and super affordable for a family. It will make some memories and you can start a tradition and serve them every year.
Change up the color of the pancakes for a different occasion, or skip the food coloring all together. This recipe is easy enough for the kids to help with, or even make for the family, when they're older. We love teaching math with cooking and baking at our house!
Have fun and enjoy!

- If your pancake batter is thin, check your baking powder. Even if it isn't expired but has been open awhile, it can affect the thickness of the batter. You can increase the flour by 1-2 tablespoons to make your batter thicker, or try again with new baking powder.
- You can skip the food coloring and just use the Lucky Charms marshmallows.
- Please be aware that some of the marshmallows will melt on the griddle.
- We use 1% milk in this recipe, but any milk would work.
