Pancakes are quickly becoming a weekend tradition at our house. Isn’t there something special about slowly waking up on a Saturday, brewing up a pot of coffee, and making a big ol’ batch of fluffy pancakes? Each time I make a batch, I try a new recipe. It’s fun for me and it’s helped me discover what I look for in a good pancake.
Recently, I wrote a post about 12 practical ways to save money and in it I suggested having friends over for coffee instead of going out. I do this all the time! I myself am a black coffee girl and sometimes add a splash of milk, but I like to have options for my pals when they’re over.
So when I was recently at Walmart I perused the coffee creamer aisle. To my pleasure, I found quite a few clean options. I opted for the International Delight Simply Pure Hazelnut Creamer because it’s made with only 5 simple ingredients and it cost just $2.16!
But here’s the thing… If you don’t use what you buy, you’re wasting your money. And with that, I decided to use up my creamer in a new way – in pancakes! The results were a fluffy, moist, and incredibly flavorful pancake, just the way I like it.
