Coffee-Flavored Protein Pancake with Caramel Macchiato Creamer Drizzle

I think it’s no secret that I love breakfast. I can eat breakfast for… breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And I have before. Just look at my recipe list for breakfast items, not too shabby right? Me gusta.

Thanks to #CollectiveBias, I get to share #MyGoodLife that includes lots of breakfast options, this time it’s from Nestle.

I went to Walmart to pick up some yummy breakfast things. First, was the STOUFFER’S® Morning Classics sausage & egg scramble, then it was the NESCAFÉ® TASTER’S CHOICE® Instant Coffee along with two NESTLÉ® COFFEE­MATE® Liquid Coffee Creamers. I’ve seen bloggers using the creamer a lot lately and I couldn’t wait to try the Caramel Macchiato variety, simply because that’s usually the coffee I get from coffee shops.

Except I didn’t really want to try it with coffee. Meh. That’s so predictable. My breakfasts are FUN, more fun than just coffee… so I wanted to do something different than what people usually use coffee creamer for (or, at least, I think?).

So I combined the coffee & creamer thing into a breakfast item! I’m a huge fan of protein pancakes and I could just feel how natural this combination would be in a pancake form.. and there it is!

How’s that for some yummy flavorful moments?

How to Use Coupons So You’re Not A Crazy Coupon Lady

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.  In this post, you’ll see how to use coupons so you don’t look like a crazy coupon lady at the store ;) Thanks to#CollectiveBias and #WalgreensPaperless 


I like coupons. I think everyone likes coupons. The thing that I don’t particularly like about coupons though is how “cheap” I feel every time I use them. Especially if I have more than a few to use at once.

No, it doesn’t stop me from using it but I still hate doing it especially if there’s a line behind me and I’m taking up time to do it… and I feel like everyone looks at me like, Oh no, it’s one of those

Whatever. Haha. Who DOESN’T like saving money? Seriously. It doesn’t grow on trees.

So when I learned that Walgreens now does paperless coupons linked to your Walgreens card I realized that this is like the most brilliant idea ever – why don’t MORE stores do this!? Seriously.

Alrighty – it’s almost back to school time for those of you who have kids or are students yourself. Crazy… where has the summer gone? I seriously feel like summer is JUST starting, definitely didn’t feel right most of the time. It’s probably because of this crazy weather and how late it got warm finally. I’m wondering how it will be in the winter this time around.. Ah. I need to stop thinking about that! Okay okay.

Well, I have some yummy recipes collected for you for back-to-school – check them out in the slideshow below. Then check out the links I collected below as well.
