I made Pumpkin Protein Pancakes for breakfast this morning, and they totally rocked my world. The texture and taste reminded me of a pumpkin muffin, so I must have said “oh my gosh, these are delicious” at least three or four times while I was eating them. And, just as awesome, they're loaded with protein! This pancake recipe has close to 30g!

Oh, that adorable pug face”¦ it gets me every time, but I didn't share my pancakes with Murphy this morning. I did, however, give him a big pug hug once I was finished eating.
Speaking of adorable pugs, I'm not quite sure what to think of this pug-bunny thing:
Mal thinks it's cute; I think it's a bit creepy.
