I found a photo of some rainbow pancakes not too long ago and just HAD to make them for the kiddos for breakfast.

They were so bright and colorful and just looked fun to make, so I’m bringing them to you.

These pancakes aren’t really anything special except that they are fun colors and stacked into a rainbow. I just used the basic box pancake mix for these and then separated them into different bowls and added food coloring to change the color of the batter.

They are great for a quick weekend breakfast when you don’t feel like making pancakes or waffles or whatever from scratch but still want to make something a little special.

Plus, who can resist rainbow colored pancakes?!?
