disaster that is my hair a ponytail is necessary. I brush my teeth contemplate life and hope that I can make it to work on time even though I should have probably left three minutes ago. There is a mad dash to the fridge to grab my lunch box and a small prayer that I packed it while I was not brushing my hair the night before (this is typically hit or miss). So as you can probably see my mornings are quit hectic and I am an adult mess and there is no time for a breakfast of champions in there.
Now I promise you once I get to work and the coffee happens I am not a frazzled wreck I am an adult human and can handle myself and am pretty good at adulting. I know what your thinking grow up and get up earlier and get a good breakfast in there but as much as that dream sounds good it probably is not in my immediate future. Now days off are completely different! I wake up make some coffee, let the dogs out and make breakfast. Oh yes you saw that right make breakfast. Now this is not some everyday thing I do when I am off work so don't go thinking I am a changed woman on my days off. When I say breakfast we are talking Cheerios and OJ but I do like to dabble in the fancy breakfasts now and then. That is when these magical pancakes happened. There is something about a pancake that just makes a person smile but when you add blueberries, chocolate chips, banana, or just keep it simple and put some syrup on top it makes teaching my dog to ride a skate board, remodeling my 1950's style kitchen myself or conquering the national debt seem like easy tasks. A nice spin to these pancakes is the added bonus of using almond milk instead of milk. It makes the pancakes a little more dense but they are so flavorful and the texture is fantastic! I added blueberries to one pancake, chocolate chips to another and made one giant plain pancake. So depending on how large you want your pancakes depends on how many you will get get!
