Valentines Day Recipes – Heart-Shaped Strawberry Pancakes {Monday Meals}

I’m sharing each of my Valentines Day recipes in separate posts.  First up is breakfast and heart-shaped pancakes.

Once you use your spoon to “draw” a heart with the batter. Pour batter in the middle to fill in the heart.

FYI … this can be done for any holiday or shape.  On my kids’ birthdays, I make number pancakes for their new age.

I had leftover toasted coconut and toasted pecans, so I used those in our pancakes. You can use whatever filling you like. Obviously, if your child doesn’t like coconut, don’t put it in their pancakes.

 Usually, our kids had to eat whatever I made, but these pancakes were easy to adapt.  It’s easy to meet each child’s individual tastes in this meal.
