I love breakfast, and we take it very seriously around these parts.

If you follow me on instagram, you’ll see that I enjoy  making ‘”themed” pancakes. Initials for birthdays, footballs, team initials, pumpkins for Halloween, and now cinnamon roll maple leaf pancakes for fall.

So I was thrilled to be joining with Wholesome Sweeteners in their pancake party.

I’ve been using Wholesome Sweeteners sugars for years, and now they just introduced a new pancake syrup. My kids love it, and I love that it is organic, non-GMO certified, and free of high fructose corn syrup. It doesn’t hurt that is it delicious as well.

I love to play along so I created a recipe just for the occasion. Maple leaf shaped pancakes {I am in LOVE with this 1936 Maple Leaf 5-Piece Cookie Cutter Set} with cinnamon roll ribbons for the veins. They’re fun, perfect for fall, and of course yummy! The perfect pancake party food.

  • for the pancakes -
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • for the cinnamon ribbons -
  • 1/4 cup of butter, softened but not melted
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tsp cinnamon


  • to make the pancakes, pre-heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat - 325 - 350 on an electric griddle
  • combine the dry pancake ingredients
  • whisk together the milk, egg, butter, and vanilla and pour over the dry ingredients, stir only until everything is combined
  • prepare the cinnamon ribbon by mixing the butter with the brown sugar and cinnamon, fill a pastry bag or zip top bag with the filling - if you are using the zip top bag, snip a small corner off the bag to pipe filling
  • make sure to butter your pan or griddle if needed, and also butter your cookie cutter
  • place the leaf shape cookie cutter on the griddle or pan - add batter (my shape used 1/4 cup batter) pipe the leaf's "veins" with the cinnamon filling
  • once the batter has set a bit, remove the cookie cutter, but do not flip until the top of the pancake is bubbled (about 2 - 3 minutes)
  • flip and cook until the bottom is golden brown, another minute or two
  • continue with the remaining batter

you could even add icing to these babies, but we love our cinnamon roll pancakes straight up with syrup.
