V-Day Pancakes

Deliriously delicious, I promise.

Pancakes. Just your basic pancakes. That’s how it all started anyway.

For a special Valentine’s Day breakfast, I wanted to make pink pancakes. But I couldn’t find my red food dye. So I just stirred in red sprinkles. It sort of did the trick. They turned out more peach than pink but the white chocolate chips I added to the batter on a whim made up for my less than pink pancakes.

And while I was mixing up my batter, I just happened to be whipping up my first ever batch of homemade nut butter – a blend of walnuts, blanched almonds, and dark chocolate chips.

Yep, that’s right.

And really, I was only planning on drizzling the warm nut butter on top of the stack but I couldn’t help myself.

I mean, really. How could anyone resist?

You would think this would be ridiculously sweet but really, it wasn’t. The walnuts and almonds in the nut butter (made with a few pinches of sea salt, naturally) cut it nicely.

And the sprinkles? They are just for fun.
