Blackberry Mocha Quinoa Pancakes


Today is the day of LOVE. A day of sweetness. A day for

Yea, everyone should have been eating pancakes this morning. Pancakes are the best. They are sweet, and just a little bit savory. They are comforting, filling, and pretty much perfect. This morning, in my option, I made the perfect pancakes.

Clearly they had to be chocolate. Nothing is perfect without chocolate.

Coffee is also a must, therefore I decided that these pancakes absolutely had to include coffee… (they don’t call it the nectar of the gods for nothing!)

To sweeten it all up, I decided to add blackberries, which as of late, are a favorite fruit of mine.

I also absolutely love quinoa… I can’t help it…these had to include quinoa.

So, there we have it my perfect pancake. Sorry I’m not sorry!

chocolate, coffee, blackberries and quinoa

Oh… and these clearly the needed a topping…

…The perfect topping for the perfect pancake
