That’s quite the title for pancakes, but these aren’t your Mama’s pancakes. Not that your Mama doesn’t have some delicious flap jacks, but add this spread I concocted and make them Nutella® Cream Cheese Pancakes and I think you’ll be singing a happy song! With International Pancake Tuesday coming on Tuesday, February 17th, I’ve been thinking up all kinds of ways to use this “happiness in a jar” hazelnut spread. Come with me and join the “Spread the Happy” Nutella® campaign.
Nutella Cream Cheese Pancakes
We love pancakes around here, I mean, who doesn’t love pancakes, right?
Like many people, we make pancakes or waffles on weekends, but they’re great any day! My son loves to spread Nutella on his pancakes and I generally like to spread a little peanut butter, until I tried it his way. Then of course, I had to one up it and mix it with a bit of cream cheese. I mixed the two together until creamy. The hazelnut nuttiness with the creamy cream cheese, mixed is delicious! If you’ve got peanut allergies in your household, rest assured that Nutella contains NO peanuts or peanut ingredients. You’ll also love that Nutella contains no artificial colors or preservatives. We stacked our pancakes with the Nutella spread in between and delicious berries on top. I could also see folding your pancake like a taco, adding Nutella, fruit and perhaps a bit of whipped cream. Nutella just made breakfast fun!
Nutella is America’s number one hazelnut spread and why wouldn’t it be? With it’s roasted hazelnuts, skim milk and a hint of cocoa, what’s not to love?
My son loves a grilled Nutella and banana sandwich after school and can often be found just grabbing a quick spoonful of the creamy goodness.
