elvis pancakes {gf}


Sunday should've been called Stuffday. It's the perfect day to stuff yourself with a 
delicious brunch and then lay on the couch thinking about all the stuff you should be doing. 
This house is definitely pro-brunch and pro-Stuffday. 

We made these super scrumptious pancakes for our Stuffday brunch yesterday. It was a fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants recipe that resulted in a win. (those non-planned recipes can go either way, but for this one we'll gladly take the victory) I love the banana + peanut butter combo (hence the "elvis"), and I'm extra stoked (do non-snowboarders say that?) that these worked beautifully with no flour. That's right, no flour
We've got an almond meal, peanut butter, and egg trifecta creating the perfect high-protein power pancake. 
I could've eaten these plain...they were that good.

So who's on board for the Stuffday name change...
and more importantly, what did everyone eat this weekend?
