All opinions are mine alone. #EggoBTSTarget #CollectiveBiasOne thing I have always put precedence on in life is my goal to live adventurously – something that honestly doesn’t come easy for me. Even with my inhibitions, I’ve always attempted to encourage my kids to experience life and all of its beautiful colors fully. During the summer months, I always do my best to cram in as much as possible – we travel, ride bikes and we’re always looking for something new to experience. When summer ends, I’ll be the first to admit that back-to-school time makes me a bit sad. Although, at the same time, it’s exciting because it’s a whole new adventure.
Back to School with Eggo and Crayola
Since we always seem to be on the go year round, I’m constantly looking for ways to re-fuel my kids’ bodies and their creativity. To do this, I like to come up with quick recipes that the kids can be involved in making too. Over the summer we came up one that we love to make over and over again – Eggo Pancake Fruit Crepes. I found that by using Eggo pancakes to create my “crepe”, I could quickly create a warm meal or snack that could be easily customized for different tastes or times of the day.
Sometimes in the mornings we make ours with yogurt and berry fillings. For snacks, I like to make mini pancakes with melted chocolate, peanut butter, and banana centers. Then for dessert, we sometimes fill our Eggo pancake “crepes” with ice cream and chocolate sauce. I love that the options here are endless and that my family has the opportunity to get creative with our food.Now that school is starting up again and we’ll be spending more time at home rather than on the road, we went to Target to stock up on Eggo products and found this awesome promotion.

Get Creative in the Kitchen
Ready to get creative in the kitchen? I’ve included my two of my favorite recipes to make with Eggo brand products. When you’re done with that, pop on over to the Eggo website and download a free downloadable activity booklet to keep the creativity flowing. Enjoy!
Eggo Pancake Fruit Crepes
- Eggo® Pancakes – not the minis for this one.
- Vanilla Yogurt
- Berries, Banana, or your favorite fillings
Begin by warming the pancakes per the directions on the box.
Place the warm pancake on a flat surface and carefully roll them out with a rolling pin. Be sure not the make them too thin.
Fill the rolled out pancake with a thin line of yogurt, choice of topping and then roll the pancake inward to form a roll.
Mini Chocolate PB Banana Bites
- Eggo® Pancake Minis
- Mini Chocolate Chips
- Peanut Butter
- Banana – sliced
Arrange the pancakes on a microwave-safe plate in a single layer. You should have an even number.
Place a few chocolate chips on half of the pancakes. Warm the pancakes in the microwave per the directions on the box.
Once the pancakes are warmed, remove them from the microwave and spread a small amount of peanut butter on the empty pancakes.
Top each peanut butter covered pancake with a slice of banana and then top it off with a chocolate pancake – chocolate on the inside to create a sandwich.
The fun thing about these recipes is that they make it so easy to get creative. Leave me a comment below letting me know what your creative combination using Eggo® brand products would be!
