Butternut squash oatmeal

Chocolate pancakes

I love Sundays, I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before. To me Sundays are all about sleeping in, spending hours in bed even after waking up and having a decadent breakfast once I actually manage to get out of bed.

I love experimenting with different flavor combinations in my pancakes and this time I wanted something super chocolaty. Ingredients: For the pancakes: 1 cup rolled oats 1/2 banana 1 – 2 tbsp cacao powder 1 1/4 cups almond milk pinch of baking soda For the […]
