Hello lovelies! Who doesn’t love pancakes? I most definitely do. The issue is the standard pancakes are perhaps not the healthiest for you and I need to eat like a million of them to fill me up. I’m so happy I came across a healthy and filling pancake recipe and now I can’t stop craving them… The recipe is originally in Swedish so a while back I translated the recipe here on the blog so you non-Swedish speakers can enjoy them as well (click here)!
They’re so easy and quick to make as well which is a big bonus! I know I mention it in the blog post with the recipe but you have to have Almighty Foods’ Hazelnut Fuj to spread on top with berries and cacao nibs. It’s insanely good. I can’t even describe it.
I decided to surprise Jamie with these pancakes the other day for brunch because we had loads of overripe bananas that had to be used. I think it’s so important to not forget to do those little things for each other. Jamie and I have now been together for over five years and have lived together since pretty much the beginning of our relationship, since we met in halls at uni. So sometimes you can forget that you need to make that little extra effort when you’re busy with life. It really doesn’t take much to make the other person feel a bit extra special 🙂
Later in the afternoon we met up with my sister Ellie and her boyfriend Hampus for a very sunny walk in the park. It was beautiful walking around in Kelvingrove Park looking at all the trees with stunning tones of orange, yellow and red. It was very with dogs everywhere. I loved it! Anywhere there’s loads of dogs I’m happy. It was great catching up with Ellie and Hampus whilst getting some fresh air. It’s easy to forget this time of year to be outdoors but it feels great once you have been. Especially when the sun is out!
We finished our walk with a some teas and coffees at Drugstore Social before parting ways. Love moments together like that. Doesn’t happen often!
Now time to get on with the day. I was at Stella’s this morning and we did loads of snatch practices. They can really be frustrating all those drills but they have to be done to improve in the long run. It’s good to find your weak points so you can work on them!
