With only one week left until the release of Star Wars™ The Force Awakens, we are giddy with excitement. You can go anywhere without seeing something Star Wars™ related, especially in our house. 😉 Earlier this week, I whipped up some super fun outer space inspired cinnamon toast crunch pancakes.
I found some fun Star Wars™ themed cereal and Go-Gurt® at Walmart and knew they’d make a fun breakfast idea. My boys would be super excited with just the cool cereal and Go-Gurt, but I decided to make extra special pancakes with one of the cereal varieties first. But before we talk about my cinnamon toast crunch pancakes, I want you to check out these super fun droid viewers available in specially marked boxes of Star Wars™ themed cereal.
How awesome are they?! I must collect them all! They totally remind me of my childhood and finding fun toys in cereal boxes on Saturday morning. I love that they are Star Wars™ viewers. I can’t wait to see the new movie in theaters with my kids next week, watching it will also be reminiscent of my childhood watching the original movies growing up.
Back to my fun breakfast idea! Both boys love cinnamon, so it seemed to make sense to add Cinnamon Toast Crunch® to our regular pancake batter! Our pancake mix calls for 1 cup of mix to one cup of milk (or water). I simply added 3/4 C of crushed cereal to the mixed up batter and carefully combined it. (Note I measured out the 3/4 C before I crushed it). This batter made 6 pancakes. To keep it space themed, I created star and planet pancakes using star silicone molds and my mini pie pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
We skipped the maple syrup and went with with brown sugar-cinnamon butter and crushed Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal instead. Brown sugar – cinnamon butter is easy to make, just beat 1/2 C of softened butter with 1/2 t Cinnamon and 1/4 C brown sugar until it’s creamy, smooth and delicious! 😉
Besides the fun toys you will find in each specially marked box, go ahead and print out a few of the fun Star Wars™ printable activities I shared last week. Everyone will love coloring while chowing down on their cinnamon toast crunch Pancakes!
