Nobody likes the same breakfast over and over again. Clearly I don't.

While I love pancakes, let's just admit it, the same nutella, banana pancake trend has kind of faded away.

So to make breakfasts great again and to kick-start your day with something yummy, I bring to you my Pinacolada Pancakes.

Well, in short, that's how you serve breakfast in style.

The Story Behind It.....


I love pancakes.  I mean I love, love, LOVE pancakes.  However, I cannot eat the same, boring plain pancake over and over.


 I must have variety, and from chocolate to granola, I will try it.  This pina colada pancake was a definite hit. All of my pancake varieties are for both gluten and gluten-free eaters.  


Simply take the add-ins and combine them with your favorite pancake mix or recipe and presto(!) you have your own personalized pancake delicacy.

I really like to make what I consider happy foods on dark, dreary, cold mornings.  I think bringing the flavors of the tropics into theses pancakes does the trick just fine.  


Who can be depressed when eating foods reminiscent of sunshine and beaches?
