Rudolph the Reindeer Pancakes with Maple Bacon Antlers

IMG_2882We had so much fun making these gluten-free pancakes last Christmas! The boys just love when I make them themed meals. ;) This Rudolph the reindeer pancake was made using Pamela’s Products gluten-free pancakes (because they are the best and are SO easy to make), candy eyes, a raspberry nose and crisp, maple bacon antlers. It is easy to assemble just make sure to make one big pancake and one smaller one in the shape of a rounded bottom dome so it fits perfectly over the other pancake making a “snout”. A smaller circle will work as well. We hope you have fun with this holiday breakfast like we did. On my Pinterest board you can find other great ideas for crafts, food, Elf on the Shelf and more this December. Just make sure to always convert them to gluten-free!!
