Did you know today is National S'mores Day? Here at Neatorama, this is a real holiday with a lot of clout -which means celebrating the day to its fullest.

In fact, we've compiled enough recipes for you to eat s'mores all day -including for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
By working some marshmallow and chocolate chips into your pancakes as they cook and then covering them with marshmallow, graham cracker crumbs and chocolate chips, Bombshell Bling made a reasonably healthy breakfast loaded with all the makings of heaven.

For a more traditional French take on s'more pancakes, Bombshell Bling suggests trying your hand at s'mores crepes.

Again, if you really want to up your s'mores game though, try making your crepes with graham flour.
