Eggnog Pancakes for Festive Mornings

IMG_1808_picmonkeyed.jpg

We really enjoy pancakes in our house. Whether its a quick protein pancake as we're rushing around on a Monday morning or a from-scratch-batch made while we linger in our fluffy socks and cozy pjs on a Saturday morning, we get pumped about pancakes. I had some extra eggnog in the fridge last week and figured I'd try my hand at a seasonally flavored stack. Pancakes will most likely be the breakfast of choice come Christmas morning, so you see I had to give these eggnog pancakes a test run.  Eggnog pancakes on tray

If eggnog isn't your thing, these gingerbread pancakes are a delicious seasonal option as well. I know it's been a little while since I've posted here, and I fully intend to get back into a regular groove in the coming year. There are lots of #kurtantravels to share (London, Paris, etc) and exciting things in the works for 2017. But just in case my next visit isn't for another week or two, I wish you the absolute happiest of holidays and all the luck for the new year!

eggnog pancakes and fluffy socks

P.S. Seriously though, consider some fluffy socks. Wearing them will make your pancakes taste that much better.
