The Best Is Yet to Come

Sometimes I think that I’ve had the best…  But then something makes you realize that the best is yet to come.

Like when I went dress shopping for prom…  But then I went dress shopping for my wedding.

Like when I was graduated from high school…  But then I graduated from college and got a job.

Like when I celebrate the holidays with my family…  But then I think about passing our holiday traditions onto our [future] children.

Or like when I made these stacks of Peanut Butter Puff Pancakes

but then I made this sweet stack of Peanut Butter Pancakes.

Both of these pancake recipes are super easy which makes them perfect for any morning of the week.  Who doesn’t love a stack of piping hot, fresh, and fluffy pancakes?  Ryan has yet to try either of these ‘cakes because he’s been asleep…  As they say, the early bird catches the worm ;)

Peanut Butter Puff Pancakes

¼ cup white whole wheat flour

½ Peanut Butter Balls cereal [we find it at WF]

1 teaspoon stevia

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 egg whites [or 1 egg]

¼ cup water

1.  In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients. 

2.  Whisk the ingredients together until combined.  Note: There will be some lumps because of the Peanut Butter Balls.

3.  Spray a medium-sized skillet with non-stick cooking spray and place over medium heat.

4.  For each pancake, spoon 2 generous tablespoons of batter into the pan. 

5.  Cook each pancake until a few bubbles form and burst, approximately 1 to 2 minutes.

6.  Flip the pancake and cook until browned on the underside, about 1 to 2 more minutes.

6.  Serve the stack of ‘cakes with your favorite toppings!

toppings: plain Chobani sweetened with stevia + PB2 frosting + slivered almonds + fresh sweetened cranberries + honey

“Still it’s a real good bet, the best is yet to come
The best is yet to come, and babe, won’t that be fine
You think you’ve seen the sun, but you ain’t seen it shine
Wait till the warm-up’s underway
Wait till our lips have met
Wait till you see that sunshine day
You ain’t seen nothin’ yet
The best is yet to come, and babe,  won’t it be fine
The best is yet to come, come the day you’re mine
Come the day you’re mine…”

~The Best Is Yet to Come by Frank Sinatra

XOXO,

P.S.  Regardless of your party affiliation or political beliefs, I hope y’all got out to vote today!  Fingers crossed, the best is yet to come for our wonderful country!

Question:  What’s your favorite pancake flavor?  Banana nut?  Blueberry?  Chocolate chip?  Traditional buttermilk?  I’ll happily eat a stack of any pancakes that are served to me, buttt I do prefer fruiter ‘cakes!

Question:  What’s the best thing that has happened to you recently?!  Booking and confirming our honeymoon was pretty awesome!
