Christmas Morning Pancakes. Pecan-Citrus-Spice. Gluten-Free.

These are them. These are the pancakes you want to make on Christmas morning. I should know because I just taste tested them for you today, on a non-holiday morning, and they were blissful. So I can only imagine how much better they will taste (if possible) in between opening presents, listening to holiday music and feeling that cozy, happy Christmas morning feeling.

Flavors. Citrus. Spice. Vanilla. Pumpkin. Pecan. Maple. These Christmas Morning Pancakes are a big warm hug from me to you. Oat flour-based, and packed with festive flavors. Totally gluten-free, yet still fluffy and delicious. And ps. If you want to use regular flour in place of oat flour, you can do that too. Get my recipe, plus my THREE tips to gluten-free pancake-ing..

It is all twirling by so fast. This holiday season thing. I want more Santa hats, mulling spices, marshmallows, candy canes, Christmas cookies, holiday music and jolly parties. More holiday-ing. So far, I will confess to you, that I have barely spent half a day Xmas shopping, but I have spent more hours than I can count laughing with friends. I have been lucky to cross paths with so many groups of my girl and guy friends these past few weeks. Forget Christmas cookies, those experiences, giggles, long chats, smiles and hugs are food for my soul, I tell you. My mug is full.

So as 2014 fades away, I am going to embrace this happy feeling that has been buzzing around me lately. Lets call it joy, just to be all festive.

And I hope you are living it up with me. Are you? I mean, really, are you? You deserve more than shopping stress, frazzled nerves and omg-I-am-way-too-busy feelings this season. You deserve something magical. Special. You deserve COZY. So lets..
