Grain free snowman pancakes made with Simple Mills Pancake & Waffles mix. A cute and festive breakfast during the holiday season and perfect to make with kids — this recipe is in partnership with Simple Mills.

One of my favorite ways to enjoy a snowy winter morning during the holidays is by sleeping in, wearing my PJs all day, watching the Grinch and Home Alone and of course, enjoying brunch. Bonus if hot chocolate is also included with lots of whipped cream, babyyyy. P.S. Whipped cream is my weakness.

Round Up Sunday is here! I hope you guys have had an amazing weekend, and that these round-ups start your Sunday’s off right. With the first snow in Chicago + an extremely busy week over here, I’ve been cozying up with hot coffee (lots), a great playlist, and of course, the final wedding details before the big day. The best cure for a wintery day and a busy mind? Breakfast. All. Day. Long. Specifically? Fluffy stacks of pancakes and waffles that fill your house with warm goodness. That’s why this Sunday I rounded up 22 cozy pancake & waffle recipes that are perfect for snuggling up and staying in.

Freezer friendly healthy pumpkin waffles with cozy spices + a touch of maple syrup. These fluffy waffles will be your go-to fall breakfast. 

How the heck are you? Was your weekend filled with relaxation and good food? Yesterday I made a big bowl of vegetarian soup filled with chickpeas and spices. It was luxuriously cozy and felt like everything I needed on a Sunday night coupled with catching up on the latest episode of This is Us & watching one of my favorite Halloween movies: Hocus Pocus.

Fluffy whole wheat zucchini bread pancakes with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. These pancakes taste like a slice of your favorite classic zucchini bread. Add chocolate chips or pecans if you’d like!

I know I said that I was going to bring you a savory recipe today, but pancakes were on my mind. So what’s a girl to do but bring ya the goods.

Side note: I just started watching This is Us and I’m completely obsessed. I know I’m a little late to the game, but after getting Hulu (strictly for Handmaid’s Tale), I found myself searching for other good shows. AND THIS IS US IS SO GOOD.

Sweet potato protein waffles made with cottage cheese, oats, roasted sweet potato, a touch of maple syrup and cinnamon! 

Last week I woke up one morning with a food hangover. Admittedly, I had eaten too much the night before (helloooo pizza!) and woke up feeling a little guilty and a lot bloated. Knowing this all too familiar feeling, I scooted myself to a hot yoga class — not only to release all the salt my body was holding onto from what I had eaten the night before, but also to decompress and remind myself that today is another day, a new opportunity to nourish my body. We all have challenges we face — big or small, but sometimes getting back to your roots and taking a deep breath is all you need for a fresh start.

The best remedy I’ve found after a little overindulgence is to move your body and intake high protein, nutrient dense food the next day. After my workout, I came home starving and ready to get back on track with the food that agrees with my body. Case in point — these wonderful maple sweet potato protein waffles.

Banana bread pancakes that are perfectly sweet, fluffy and nutritious. Made with whole wheat flour and dairy free too!

Safe to say, I’m learning everything there is about being a first-time homeowner. Including when your oven breaks and you have to call the repair man to fix it. Who knew home repairs could be so ridiculously expensive?

Now that the oven is finally working again, I can get back to meal prep from the Healthy Glow Co. — that means these banana bread pancakes are on the menu this week.
