These Churro Pancakes are prefect for breakfast, brunch, dinner, or even as a snack. They can be freeze well. 

What ingredients do I need to make Churro Pancakes?

 How do you make these Churro Pancakes?

The key to making these pancakes nice and fluffy is beating 2 eggs whites together.

 Did you know that egg white when beaten really well-create a foam like texture? That is what makes these pancakes thick and fluffy.

Therefore this is a critical step to ensure the pancakes turn out thick and fluffy.

 until they are are nice and foamy or when you have formed “soft peaks”

“Soft Peaks” is the stage you want when you’re simply adding whipped egg whites to a dish to lighten it and to add extra fluffy, light-as-air results.

In a separate mixing bowl combine the remaining ingredients.

Whisk until all ingredients are incorporated.

Gently fold in the soft peaks/egg whites. 

Spray a non stick skillet with non stick cooking spray and heat on medium high.

Using a 1/4 measuring cup, scoop pancake batter onto prepared skillet, making 4 inch pancakes.

Cook pancakes on medium high until little bubbles start to form at the top of the pancakes.

About 2 minutes. Flip and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until lightly golden.

Sprinkle the top and bottoms with cinnamon sugar substitute.

Can these be made with all purpose flour instead of self rising flour or Kodiak Pancake Mix?

Yes, you bet! Just add 1 tsp baking powder along with 1/4 tsp salt to the 2/3 cup all purpose flour. 

How do freeze these Churro Pancakes?

Place a sheet of parchment or wax paper between each pancake and stack together.  Place pancakes inside an air tight container or heavy-duty freezer bag.

Freeze for up to 1 to 2 months for best quality.

Will these work with stevia in the raw? I don’t have any monkfruit sweetener.

Thank you!

Hi Maree

Yes, you bet-stevia in the raw would work as a substiute for the monkftuit -keep in mind-that is more concentrated and therefore you'll want to use the conversion for real sugar that is located on back of the package so its not overly sweetened.

Hope that helps!
