You know what’s lame? The fact that I mentioned in my previous post that I’m a just-not-into-breakfast kinda girl and guess what just so accidentally happens to be my first recipe post? Pancakes! Yes pancakes…oh the irony!
These aren’t your ordinary pancakes. These delicious goodies are swirled in cinnamon yumminess! Think of these as smushed cinnamon buns because they taste and smell just like one. This just might be my new favorite way of making pancakes!
Let’s pause and take a short break. Feel free to walk away and stretch those legs, but do please come back to read the rest of this post and to see sexy pics of pancakes! You’ve been warned. I am now going to rant about my iffy relationship with pancakes. I cannot stand eating them plain, it makes me cringe. I have to incorporate something (anything!) into them. I love putting in fresh blueberries, bananas, strawberries, chopped up apples chunks…anything that makes them taste less like dough and more like…well I don’t really know! And it’s a great way to include fruit into my diet.
Welcome back! Now on to the recipe:
