Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes

Here's your cinnamon roll in pancake form! Okay, so it won't replace that yummy, gooey cinnamon roll, but it is a delicious pancake! Plus, how cute is the cinnamon swirl?

Have a great weekend!

Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes
Recipe from Erin of Naturally Ella

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
1 tablespoon oil
2 tablespoons cinnamon

Icing:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients except for cinnamon. In a separate bowl, combine milk, eggs, and oil- whisk to combine and pour over dry ingredients. Begin to heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat.

Remove approximately 1/3 cup of batter and place in a separate bowl. Add in cinnamon and stir (you made need more or less cinnamon depending on the quality.) Place batter in a zip lock back and cut 1/4" tip off the bag.

Dip 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Right after scooping each pancake, take the zip lock back and squeeze a spiral into the pancake. Let pancake cook until small bubbles begin to form on the surface. Flip and continue to cook the pancake for 1-2 more minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Top with syrup or combine milk, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a bowl and create a simple icing for the pancakes.
