To impress your guests this Easter, you want to blend savory and sweet like a magician. And there’s no better breakfast staple that gets the job done than pancakes. 

Our Banana macadamia sheet pancakes are lightly sweetened with maple syrup and banana and are in and out of the oven in 15 minutes. Topped with chopped macadamia nuts, toasted coconut, and chocolate chips, it looks as good as it smells. The best part? No need to stand at the stove for 20+ minutes flapping jacks. 

But…just in case standing at the stove is your jam, try these other great pancake recipes:

Vegetable Mini Frittatas

These yummy Vegetable mini frittatas are perfect for a large muffin pan or those ramekins you’ve been dying to use. The veggies in this dish add the perfect texture and flavor balance without the hassle of making omelets. Simply prep, bake, and refrigerate for the next day. 

If you prefer your eggs fresh from the oven, consider prepping the ingredients the day before then tossing your muffin pan in a preheated oven 10 minutes before serving. Try these other a2 Milk® baked egg recipes to add variety to your brunch table:

Easter Bunny Cinnamon Rolls

After you make these bunny-shaped Cinnamon Rolls by Heather Brooker, you’ll never go back to the round version again. First, you’ll need to follow the recipe exactly as laid out. After cutting your dough into 1-inch rounds, pull up one end of the dough and form it into bunny ear shapes. 

Reinforce the shapes with a spoon and press the dough firmly into itself so that the ears are secure. Halfway through the cooking time, remove the rolls from the oven and reinforce the shape again so they continue to look like bunny ears. When finished baking, slather those puppies (bunnies) with icing and get ready for the ‘oos and ahhs.’

But don’t leave your guests hanging, add these delicious breads and treats to fuel up for the after-brunch egg hunt:

Crudité with green goddess dressing

For the veggie lovers, serve up a platter of Crudité with green goddess dressing. This homemade dressing is tart and refreshing to complement the other sweet dishes at your table. Make sure to set aside a bit of time to whip up your own homemade buttermilk, and play around with your crudité choosing's to make fun shapes like cauliflower bunnies.

For an infusion of veggies at the table, add these recipes featuring a2 Milk® Half and Half:
