Ingredients

  • 2 cups biscuit/baking mix
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 medium bananas, sliced
  • 18 semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling
  • Whipped cream in a can

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine baking mix and cinnamon. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, milk and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  2. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a greased hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until second side is golden brown.
  3. Place pancakes on individual plates. For Santa's eyes, place two banana slices on each pancake; top with a chocolate chip. For ears, cut remaining banana slices in half; place on either side of pancake. For nose, remove nine cherries from pie filling; place one in the center of each pancake. Spoon 1/4 cup pie filling above pancake for hat. Use whipped cream to spray the beard, hat brim and pom-pom.
