Not going to lie, Easter is absolutely one of my favourite times of the year. Especially since becoming a parent I have a new appreciation for the joy it brings my girls and the time we get to spend as a family.
Over the last few years, we have put together some of our own little family traditions, including a movie night on Easter eve watching Hop, while wearing Easter jammies, putting bunny paw prints leading from the girl’s doors to the start of their Easter egg hunt and my new favourite, bunny pancakes for brekkie!!
After some serious Pinteresting for all the cute and crafty Easter ideas, I found this idea and absolutely loved it because it was a fun family activity we could all do together, but also meant we weren’t eating chocolate first thing in the morning!
It’s also full of yummy fruit and super simple and cheap to make! And I couldn’t share it with you all as I think it’s the perfect way to kick off your Easter morning with the family!
I popped a little step by step below, and can you believe all of this cost less than $20 to make!! We picked up everything for our local Woolies and I’ve even linked it all below to make it super easy!
- Woolworths Buttermilk Pancake Shaker
- 2-3 Bananas
- Fresh Blueberries
- Fresh Strawberries
- Woolworths Light Whipped Cream
- Woolworths Tasty Cheese Slices
- Granny Smith Apples
- Simply mix and shake your pancakes, pouring into a pan with melted butter or oil (personal preference) making them as round as possible.
- For each bunny, you need one large and two small pancakes (about ¼ the size of the large). Place them onto a plate.
- If you are making a bunny tail, simply pop two slices of banana and some blueberries to make the feet. You can also use sultanas if you like. Then spray some whipped cream for the bunny tail.
- If you are making a bunny face, pop two banana slices for the base of the eye, then a blueberry to complete it (as shown).
- Then cut some strawberry for the nose, some cheese for whiskers and an apple for the teeth (as shown).
This one is bound to be a hit with the kids, and it only takes about 5 minutes to make with minimal clean up so it really is a win-win!
