I’m not celebrating anything in particular – but these pancakes were just begging to have a reason to don their sprinkles.

Simply divine. What kind of sprinkles do you use? I have bought some natural ones before, but they aren’t like these-the flat and crunchy kind. Have a wonderful Tuesday, Kath!

I have to say, I think when it comes to thinks like sprinkles and food coloring as long as you don’t have any particular allergies, the artificial kinds often work better. I bought natural food coloring once and not only was it incredibly expensive, but the colors were so muddy and unpleasant I wished I hadn’t used it at all. I completely understand for people who have allergies or can’t tolerate certain dyes but for me it’s been all about things in moderation.

Anyday is a great day for pumpkin :) It does not have to be Thanksgiving to eat pumpkin :)

Actually, I made your recipe for overnight pumpkin oats last night–this was the first time I have ever made overnight oats. I am just getting ready to bowl the oats as I speak.

Love. It. I think the best days for sprinkles are the days usually reserved for serious business food. Life is a little prettier, more magical with sprinkles :)

Hahah I love any excuse to put sprinkles on something! Looks great :)

Those look so festive! And if it’s as freezing in Cville as it is in DC, I think any and all morning cheer is very necessary!

I’m foreverjealous of your breakfasts. Maybe I need to institute a breakfast dinner more often so I have time to make cool stuff like pancakes. :)

I saw this article and thought it might be worthwhile to share with your readers:
http://www.qsrmagazine.com/outside-insights/10-things-look-franchise

I know it seems you get a lot of questions about Great Harvest from people who sound like they are interested in opening a franchise and it seemed to have a lot of thoughtful questions and points I thought they might find interesting.

49 Kelly December 13, 2011 at 12:50 pm

I should also say I am no way affiliated with the magazine. I just happen to get the e-mails since I work in the food industry and thought it could be a good resource for people who are interested.

I haven’t had pancakes in FOREVER!! Those look delicious and I agree with Laura – it’s definitely time to get on the breakfast for dinner bandwagon!

I think that’s my favorite photo – it looks like Christmas! Pumpkin really gives a nice color to pancakes too.

ahhh I always wondered!! How does one make those fancy shmancy pretty letters and fonts?

Do you mean writing on photos? I do that in Photoshop, but you can also use Picnk

oh!! sorry, haha. Let me clarify. I mean the really lively and cute fonts you use like the “HAPPY BIRTHDAY KIRST!!!” bit. I’ve tried to change fonts on my blog posts but I’m not knowledgeable enough. Thanks! :D

It’s my birthday today, too! Except I live in New Zealand, so if my brain is working (its early here) it is still the 13th where you are, whereas it is the 14th here!

Unfortunatly everyone is working today so I have to spend my birthday alone :(

How funny, I pretty much had the exact same breakfast as you except without the coconut. I used Chia Charger as well :). I made the mistake of putting too much pumpkin though, because it was a little gummy, but delicious nonetheless.
