Taste the rainbow at breakfast with this fun twist on your kids’ favorite pancakes. All you do is thin out a pancake to create a “tortilla” and then stuff them with a fruit salad filling and a drizzle of yogurt. We shall call them Rainbow Pancake Tacos, and just in time for St. Paddy’s Day too!

You can make these gluten free vegan pancakes for the base or your favorite family pancake recipe. Make sure you cut up the fruit beforehand so that once you are done with the pancakes, you can chomp away immediately. Drizzle with some yogurt or use it for the dipping and top with some chopped nuts and/or seeds. But whatever you do, don’t forget to eat them with your hands (the best part!).

Here is a quick photo tutorial of how to make the pancake “tortillas” for these Rainbow Pancake Tacos:
Once you finish with each pancake you can either just layer them on top of each other on a plate and cover with a cloth OR you can turn the oven on to 200 degrees and keep in there on a baking sheet to keep warm. Remember you are eating these with your hands so you don’t need them to be as fresh as you would if eating pancakes as is.
