Kids love fun food. You know, when their snack looks like a flower or their sandwich is cut into a cool shape. Not only does it make eating fun, it sometimes even entices them to try new foods.
I get a little fancy with my kids’ snacks and meals sometimes. But honestly… most of the time it’s hard to find the time.
Holidays are a perfect time, though, to fit in some fun food for the kids.
We often take holidays a little slower, spending time at home with family, cooking and eating together. Why not make a new fun food tradition – like making your kids a cute breakfast on Easter morning!
Make Easter Bunny Pancakes an Easter Morning Tradition!
Plus, your efforts won’t go unappreciated. With this bunny breakfast as an Easter morning tradition, the kids will be reminiscing about those adorable bunny pancakes to their kids someday!

Make Adorable Easter Bunny Pancakes – in ONLY 5 Minutes!
Sure, we’re usually taking it easy on holiday mornings. But mama doesn’t want to be slaving in the kitchen, missing all the fun!
So I’m letting you in on my little secret to make Bunny Pancakes in just five minutes.
(Jump to the Full Printable Recipe!)
My secret trick…
Use Frozen Mini Pancakes for Your Bunny Pancakes!
Sure, you could use your favorite pancake batter recipe or pancake mix to make to make this cute bunny pancake recipe, too.
But let me tell you, mama…
It doesn’t matter if you make pancakes from scratch the morning of, make them ahead of time and freeze them, or grab a box of premade mini pancakes from the freezer section of the grocery store. Your kids will love their bunny pancakes on Easter morning whether they’re made from scratch or not.
Once you add the cute little yogurt details, candy eyes, sprinkle whiskers, and jelly bean nose, your kids will be so excited to eat those pancakes, they won’t care how they were made!
And they won’t be telling their friends about how the pancakes were made either. They’ll be telling everyone in earshot how awesome their mom is because she can make Easter Bunny Pancakes!
How to Make 5-Minute Easter Bunny Pancakes:
You can see the full, printable recipe below, but here are some tips and tricks that will help…
- Use kitchen scissors to cut the prepared mini pancakes instead of a knife. SO much easier!
- Consider using a pastry bag or a disposable freezer bag (with about 1/4″ of one corner cut off) to add the yogurt details to your Bunny Pancakes. You can totally use a small spatula or spreader, but using a pastry bag offers more control if you’re up for it.
- Let the kids help add the details! Big kids could decorate the bunny pancakes themselves. For little kids, maybe just do the yogurt details, then let them add the eyes, whiskers, and jelly beans.
Want to Make Your Bunny Pancakes from Scratch?
If you insist on making your own mini pancakes for your bunny pancakes, try one of these kid-approved pancake recipes:
- Cinnamon Bun Pancakes (via Sugar Spice & Glitter)
- Almond Oat Pancakes (via Homegrown Friends)
- Best Ever Gluten Free Pancakes (via The Soccer Mom Blog)
You can always make them ahead of time when it’s more convenient, then wrap them in freezer paper and pop ’em in the freezer until Easter morning. That way you can still make simple 5-minute Easter Bunny Pancakes and don’t miss any Easter basket or egg hunt fun!
