Pancake Problems!

So I have to confess...because the 1st step is admitting you have a problem.  Well....I HAVE A PANCAKE OBSESSION!!  Seriously though I love them, any kind, any topping, any time of the day.

I have even worked them into the 21 Day Fix eating plan so that I do not go crazy without them.  From pumpkin pancakes to banana chocolate pancakes, cinnamon swirl pancakes to cinnamon apple pie pancakes...EVEN spaghetti squash pancakes or Shakeology Pancakes!  You name it and I will try it!







What makes the perfect pancakes???  In my personal opinion it HAS to be a bit on the sweet side.  Fluffy texture is a MUST! And for toppings...I love maple syrup but to steer towards the healthy side I will combine greek yogurt with PB2 or just thin out PB2 with water and drizzle it over the top.

So get creative, and get cooking to make HEALTHY versions of pancakes!! I have added two NEW pancake recipes to my blog!!
