On-the-Go Pancake Tacos, 4 Ways!

It’s been a while since you’ve heard from me and it’s because life is just plain busy! So, something that’s been making it a bit easier is making way more meals with simple ingredients… many of which are able to be eaten without utensils in one hand, like these pancake tacos.

It’s no secret pancakes are one of my favorite things and I eat them for breakfast regularly. The problem is, with a new baby and a business to attend to, I’m eating a bit more on-the-go than I would like for my favorite meal of the day. While the idea of a pancake taco first hit me when I was pregnant (see first pancake taco ever right below), sleeping terribly, and needed a quick option on the way to teach a college class, it’s become more of a staple in my post-partum diet.

One breakfast taco isn’t enough though. Life gets boring unless you change up ingredients! Here are 4 of my favorite combinations I’ve eaten thus far. They each include fruit as well as a creamy and crunchy topping. Need a taco preworkout? Go a bit lighter on the nuts and volume of fruit. Need one that’s more filling? Use a protein pancake as a base or have a hard boiled egg on the side! The possibilities are endless, but here’s the combos that speak to me most:

Banana Peanut Butter Cacao

Blueberry Cashew Cream

Almond Raisin Hemp Granola

Strawberry Yogurt Pecan

Let me know, what would your perfect pancake taco be filled with?

On-the-Go Pancake Tacos

Ingredients:

  • Recommended pancake recipe: Buckwheat oat pancakes
    • The batter can be made ahead, then stored in your refrigerator in a tightly sealed container.
  • Option 1
    • 1 small banana, 1 tbsp peanut butter, 1 teaspoon cacao nibs, 1 tsp shredded unsweetened coconut
  • Option 2
    • 1/3 cup blueberries, 1 tbsp cashew butter, 2 tbsp coconut whipped cream (or regular whipped cream)
  • Option 3
    • 1 tbsp almond butter, 2 tbsp raisins, 2 tbsp granola, 1/2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • Option 4
    • 1/3 cup sliced strawberries, 2 tbsp chopped pecans, 2-3 tbsp plain or vanilla yogurt

Directions:

  • Pour a heaping half cup of batter into a pan, over low-medium heat.
  • When bubbles begin to form, flip over, cover with a lid and turn off the heat. This retains more moisture so it folds more easily into a taco shape without breaking.
  • After 2-3 minutes, remove lid and place in a small bowl to form a bit of a taco shape.
  • Fill with preferred ingredients and eat on the go!
