When the grandkids stop by after a busy day of school, they are ravenous! They need something delicious to get them through an afternoon of homework and soccer practice. Plus, they need to relax and unwind. How do we relax? By whipping up a quick snack together. Making Caramel Apple Pancakes is a great way to spend some quality time together.

I’m beyond thrilled that my grandkids love to cook! They have joined a long line of amazing cooks and early on, I made sure to introduce simple, fun foods for them to help prepare. Also, encouraging them to look through cookbooks, especially cookbooks for kids, inspires them even more.

When the grandkids were toddlers, I’d let them help measure ingredients for recipes. Now, the older kids enjoy operating small appliances and are working on their knife skills.

The recipe for Caramel Apple Pancakes is totally kid-friendly and perfect for fall. Plus, these pancakes are not just for breakfast. They are a great dessert or after-school snack for the grandkids when they come over to visit. I’ll let you in on a secret. We start with Kellogg’s® Eggo® Star Wars Galaxy Adventure Buttermilk Pancakes.

My son eats these waffles every morning for breakfast – he has too – his bus leaves at 6AM ad this momma is not cooking anything at 5:30 am in the morning!

Pam Wattenbarger October 17, 2017 - 4:26 pm

These look delicious. My kids always loved having Eggo waffles for breakfast. Especially the cinnamon kind.

Hands up I am not the best at cooking or baking but I am always up for trying something new and this sounds like it would be right up my street so it is definitely going on my to try list.

Amanda October 17, 2017 - 6:18 pm

One of our absolute favorite breakfast spots has apple pancakes and we LOVE it. What we don’t love? The hour long line to enjoy them. Can’t wait to make your recipe at home!

Liz Mays October 17, 2017 - 6:37 pm

Now these are tasty! I could actually go for a pancake dinner sometime soon. This is such a nice way to add some fall flavor.

Sapphire Kharyzma October 17, 2017 - 7:57 pm

Carmel Apple Pancakes sound so yummy. I can literally taste them as I read your feature. I have to try making these with my six-year-old. He loves helping me make goodies.

Sandy N Vyjay October 18, 2017 - 6:27 am

Getting the kids involved in cooking is great. I still remember helping out my grandma on some of the recipes. The recipes remain etched in my memory till today.

Jenn @ EngineerMommy October 18, 2017 - 9:49 am

I love bringing the kids into the kitchen with me to cook and prepare meals. This sounds like such a delicious recipe. I would love to try this with the kids over the weekend.

Terri Beavers October 18, 2017 - 3:16 pm

My grand kids love pancakes almost as much as they love chicken. My apples are almost ready to pick and I can’t wait to add this to my apple and pancake recipes.

Dina Demarest October 19, 2017 - 1:32 am

This is a great idea for breakfasts! Perfect for non-school days!

Dennis October 19, 2017 - 1:04 pm

These caramel apple pancakes look amazing. I would set all of the alarm clocks in my house to get up early enough to make these. And that says a lot because I am not a morning person. I love that you made Star Wars pancakes.

miranda October 19, 2017 - 5:50 pm

great idea! I am yet to try this! I’m not so big on pancakes but this recipe does seem yummy.
