Saturday Snuggle Pancake Recipe


If you’ve been reading my ramblings for awhile, you know that pancakes are my soulmate food.┬áMy husband used to hate breakfast food. For some reason, bread never appealed to him (isn’t that crazy?) But awhile ago, we came across this pancake recipe, and the world changed.

Every weekend, we have these pancakes. In abundance. And the coolest part? They are part of this whole foods, clean eating, chemical free lifestyle that we love so much.

Truthful moment; I hosted Christmas brunch last week, and with a million things going on, I resorted to box pancake mix. Gingerbread flavor. Don’t judge me. But there is a point here. They were GROSS! And not that much quicker, and the texture was flat.

When in doubt, homemade is always the best. So if you have a hankering for pancakes this chilly weekend, and you just started a new lifestyle of clean eating, try this recipe. I promise, even if you don’t cook, they are so easy and only 5 ingredients, with an optional 3 more for flavor! And can you say fluffy?! What’s the point in eating pancakes if they aren’t fluffy?

I chose to add in blueberries, but these can easily be made plain, or with other fun additions like dark chocolate chips, bananas, pumpkin, anything really – the pancake possibilities are endless!

Also, can we just take a second to talk about my new griddle? I’m so excited about it! I’ve been crushing on the griddle idea for months, but haven’t pulled the trigger, and then my mother-in-law surprised me with this Christmas gift! If you’ve been considering a griddle, I need to tell you; game-changer. It’s so easy to clean and cooks each thing so evenly. No more burnt-outside/batter-inside pancakes. This is the one I have and love it!
