Who wants to have pancakes every morning before work/school/life but you’re also half asleep when you’re thinking about it at 7am and would prefer if they just appeared in front of you rather than having to make them?

Well, through the process of making this stack of pancakes, I discovered that despite what I may see on social media, I cannot, in fact, eat a stack of 9 pancakes. Sooo, I decided to freeze them for a quick breakfast during the week! All you have to do is take them out of the freezer and pop them in the toaster til they’re warmed up - voila! Pancakes that (almost) appear in front of you! Perfect for getting back into that September routine (#thegrind).

Also, super perfect for 3pm snack-time. There’s no judgment here and pancakes for a snack is completely fine by me…

When I have pancakes for breakfast they usually never fill me up passed 10am, but these pancakes are loaded with protein and fiber (and have no added sugar!) and will energize you for your day ahead. No energy slumps here, and no looking for second breakfast within an hour of eating your stack of pancakes.

What I can tell you (and not because I am working with Flourish Pancakes) is that these are the best dang pancakes I have ever tasted in my life. Making pancakes from scratch may be easy, but these are easier and holy, yum. The kind of pancakes that don’t actually neeeeed mayple syrup to be delicious. Like I said, I wasn’t able to eat the stack of 9 pancakes, but, oh man do I ever wish I could!

  • Greek yogurt

  • Coconut yogurt

  • Fresh fruit (berries, figs, bananas, strawberries)

  3. Heat non-stick or castiron pan or pancake griddle to medium-high. Spray or pour in a bit of oil. Don’t use butter as the dairy solids will burn.
