Oh ma’ darlin…
Oh ma’ darrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrlin Clementine!
You were lost all over summer…
Now it’s winter…
And your MINE!
I don’t know about you guys, but once I spotted those little “cuties” in the produce section at the grocery store a few weeks ago, I haven’t been able to get enough!
It only makes since that I found a way to pop them into some pancakes, right?
So what goes well with citrus?
Chocolate CARROTS of course!
And you know what else goes well with citrus?
Extract, butter, slivered nuts…it’s ALL good!
But you wanna know the best part about these ‘cakes?
I made them gluten-free!
