Peanut butter & raspberry pancakes

IMG_6965.jpg

This week has been a rough start. I’ve caught this awful cold. 😷 I feel like crap, which means I want to eat like crap! I woke up this morning and debated driving to get chocolate chip pancakes from my favourite diner. 😍

I decided not to though, mainly because I'm too lazy to put clothes on, and look reasonable enough to drive over there. 🙄

Regardless I couldn’t get the idea of PANCAKES out of my head! What I really wanted was a treat, that I wouldn't feel bad about eating after.  I wanted to create something healthy and low carb but most importantly; satisfying and yummy. I struggled with the ingredients at first,  until ten pancakes later 🙄 I perfected an amazing texture! I think you’re going to love it!
