  • 15 ounces prepared pancake mix prepared
  • 4-6 drops peppermint oil
  • 9 ounces chocolate morsels (or chips)
  • 2 teaspoons oil of choice
  • 1/2 cup crushed candy canes allergen-free if needed
  • Garnish: whipped cream


  • Add peppermint oil to prepared pancake mix
  • Preheat a griddle on medium heat (300 degrees) and grease well
  • Fry pancakes until all the mix is gone
  • Meanwhile, heat one bag of chocolate morsels and 2 teaspoons of oil in the microwave for 1 minute
  • Remove and stir Heat in 10 seconds intervals if you need it more melted, be careful not to overheat
  • Top each pancake stack with whipped cream, chocolate syrup and crushed candy canes


Use any dairy-free pancake mix but I do highly recommend Enjoy Life Foods chocolate morsels for the syrup.
Top tip: Pair the pancakes with our Candy Cane Christmas Mocktail for that extra pepperminty flavor (please note these are not dairy-free).

Is there dairy in pancake mix?

It depends on the brand. Some brands have powdered milk in their mix, but not Enjoy Life Foods! They pride themselves on having gluten-free, dairy-free pancake mix, so you don't need to worry about that.

How should I store the leftovers?

Allow these adorable Christmas pancakes to cool to room temperature. Then, store them in an airtight container or freezer bags.
