Coconut Cauliflower Pancakes - HEARTLike, seriously…that little bugger took me 5 minutes to make! 😉

But you wanna know JUST how much I heart you?

I heart you so much that when I made these pancakes and layered them with my eggfruit pudding, that I felt bad for rubbing it in your face that I have eggfruit pudding and you don’t.


Oh wait, I didn’t just say that.

Really…you should feel the love…

PicMonkey Collage 2Especially since when I made them a second time, layered them with whipped cottage cheese, but then I realized they were a bit dry.

Obviously I was distracted before by the mouth-watering chocolatey eggfruit pudding. 😉

Oh snap…there I go again. Sorry.

N – E – waaaaaaaaaaay…

But wait…it get’s better!

Because, since I love your little hearts so much and I want you to grow up big and strong, I hid something in your pancakes this morning, but you’ll never EVER guess what it is…well, unless you saw Friday’s post! 😉
