You know what gets me through Minnesota winters? Pancakes. If you make them right; they can really warm you from the inside out.
I don’t really understand how some people don’t like oatmeal. How could you NOT like it? That’s like not liking chocolate.
I want to explain to you why I haven’t been posting much lately. I’ve been working on a healthy eating/weight loss guide for women and it’s a lot harder than I thought. I’ve been staying up late, writing bits and pieces in class and spending countless hours designing the website. I am beyond excited to share the finished product with all of you. In the meantime, you should follow the guide on social media INSTAGRAM // FACEBOOK to stay updated.

At this point, I’ve tried oatmeal in almost every kind of recipe. Aside from cookies, pancakes might just be my favorite. It adds a really nice heartiness and texture to them.
These pancakes are:
