When is the last time you pulled an all-nighter? Our youth group had an all nighter this past Friday night to Saturday morning, and I was one of the few adults who "got" to stay up all night with the kids. Honestly, it wasn't so bad. We had a lot of activities, games, and awesome conversations to keep us awake. The all-nighter ended on the best possible note--a pancake breakfast!
A family from our church (and good friends of mine) is moving to Haiti in 2013. They have a ministry that they started down there a couple years ago and now they'll be taking the leap of faith and moving to Haiti to continue that ministry. They are famous for making Haitian pancakes--Cinnamon and Haitian Vanilla flavored pancakes that are delicious!
Speaking of pancakes...I made these beauties a couple weeks ago and posted a picture of my breakfast on my Facebook page. I had planned to share them with you, and got a reader request to post the recipe please. (Diane, this is for you!) These pancakes are an upgraded version of a protein pancake that I make nearly every Friday morning for breakfast. I had a few bananas that desperately needed eaten so I decided to add them to my pancakes. While I was at it, I figured I might as well add in some peanut butter and chocolate chips. It's one of my favorite flavor combinations--you simply can't go wrong! The additions to my recipe resulted in the fluffiest pancakes I've ever had!
