Rise and shine!
The sun is peaking through the shutters really early these days and I am loving it. Unlike pitch black winter mornings, the early light makes me feel like I’m supposed to be getting out of bed.
It also means my weekend sleep-ins are a little on the early side. When we don’t have plans, I enjoy hours of leisurely coffee drinking and a good book. Or home decor magazines. Or Pinterest.
Yes, I know it’s obvious I don’t have children yet.
I also have plenty of time to contemplate what delicious weekend breakfast foods I am in the mood for.
While I usually crave savoury breakfasts (do not get between me and a breakfast sandwich,) every now and again I like pancakes. The straight up, no frills kind. Here’s my go-to recipe which is approaching a stellar 6000 reviews on All Recipes.
For whatever reason, last weekend I was feeling a little sassy and decided to stray from my standard flapjack. I was rewarded. Handsomely.
It also felt pretty damn good to be eating something really delicious without refined flour/sugar guilt.
Topped with thick and creamy greek yogurt and so-juicy-it-runs-down-your-face mango, these pancakes may be my new weekend obsession.
