Mmm! DELICIOUS breakfast this morning!
These Cinnamon Brown Sugar Pancakes are equally delicious and satisfying. The protein from the Oikos and eggs and the fiber from the oats and apples filled me up and kept me full for hours. And the combination of sweet honey Oikos, brown sugar, and cinnamon provided the perfect flavors for a cool, crisp autumn morning breakfast.
I woke up with the sun this morning, but instead of shooting out of bed to start my day, I relaxed and daydreamed about breakfast! Oh, the mind of a food blogger!
I recently received an email from the Stonyfield folks about their new sweepstakes– just for bloggers:
