Who can resist a warm stack of pancakes with melted butter and gooey syrup under a snowy mountain of powdered sugar? It's a simple and indulgent dish that's a breakfast and brunch staple in homes and restaurants all across America.
But when it's National Pancake Day, it's fair game to eat stacks of them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There are endless ways to shake up your flapjacks: you can add fruits or proteins or even change up the way you cook them. We've scoured the Internet for some of the best sweet and savory pancakes, so you can enjoy them all day (and night) long.
1. Macha Green Tea Pancakes
Care for some tea with your flapjacks? These pancakes from Killing Thyme are made with oh-so-hot matcha green tea powder. Top them with Greek yogurt, fresh raspberries, pepitas, chia seeds, and macadamia nuts for an antioxidant-rich (and delicious) meal.
2. Sausage Pancakes
Always order your flapjacks with a side of sausage? Save yourself the trouble by adding a sausage patty right in the center of your pancake. This genius recipe from Meg's Everyday Indulgence might be the best thing to happen to pancakes since the recipe for Aunt Jemima's Bacon Strip Pancakes appeared in a 1962 ad.=
3. Puffed Pancakes
Most pancakes are cooked on a griddle, but this Baked Bree recipe is baked in the oven until light and puffy. Serve topped with your favorite fruits and, of course, some maple syrup.
4. The Deep Dish Pancake
No excuses for not whipping up your own batch from scratch. You can cook pretty much anything in the microwave—even pancakes. This KathEats recipe is as simple adding wet ingredients to dry ones and popping the mixture in the microwave for less than two minutes.
5. Carrot Pancakes
Flapjacks get a savory spin with shredded carrots in this recipe from All She Cooks. Prep them ahead of time by putting all the dry ingredients in a mason jar and keeping it on hand. When you have a pancake emergency (which happens all the time—trust us), mix with the wet ingredients and you're ready to roll.
6. Pumpkin Pancakes
This toddler-approved recipe from Mama Marta and Baby Zoey call for pureed pumpkin and buckwheat flour, which make them gluten free, too.

These delightfully red pancakes by Weelicious use pureed roasted beets in the batter. They're savory and earthy from the veggies, making them a great dinnertime option.
8. Baked Apple Pancake
