First, mix all the cinnamon swirl ingredients together until a paste forms. Transfer to a piping bag. Set aside.
To make the pancakes, mix the flour with baking powder, vanilla and salt. Add the milk and maple syrup and mix.
Heat a non-stick pan on medium heat, pour 1/4 cup of pancake batter then swirl the cinnamon mixture on top of the pancake batter. Wait until bubbles form and the bottom is slightly golden brown then flip.
Repeat with the remaining batter until done.
Serve with maple syrup or cinnamon rolls glaze and enjoy!
