I posted this image into the stories section of our Instagram account while sharing some recipe testing results and the responses to it was overwhelming.

Now, I ATE these pancakes. I KNOW how delicious they are but what shocked me was how excited everyone else was to try these bad boys.

Don’t get me wrong. These are definitely worth the excitement and hype but I feel like people are rarely as excited for successful new recipes as I am.

Part of me wanted to keep them all to myself until their October 4th due date but I’m not that cruel… usually.😉 And you really came through for me this week so in turn, I’ll share.

I don’t know what it is about these pancakes that makes them so good. Maybe it is the tender texture or the sweet, yet subtle, orange flavor. Perhaps it is the combination of the sweet and tart that really hits the spot.

Whatever it is, these babies did not last long when I made them while testing recipes for our upcoming Fall Meal Plan.

Thankfully, I was fortunate enough to snap some quick pictures and get a bite or two before my boys gobbled them up.

What I love most about this recipe is that it is macro-friendly and still tastes good!

I don’t know about you but over the years, I have tried so many “delicious” healthier dessert and breakfast recipes to end up with a batch in inedible, overly sweet, fake sugar bricks. Can you tell that I have been back in the search of “macro-friendly” dessert recipes lately? The results range from OK to bad and then all the way to ugly… What was my point again?

Oh yeah! But NOT these babies. These have to be experienced to be believed.

I’ve tried Blueberry pancakes with Transform Blueberry Cheesecake Meal Replacement Shake powder. Those were great.

I have a Snickerdoodle pancake/waffle recipe in the works that uses Cinnamon Toast Swirl which looks promising but I hadn’t thought about what a magical experience Orange Cream would produce until I got thinking about Fall flavors and Christmas whatnot.

The point is, MAKE THESE NOW.

Do not wait.

You can thank me later.

Orange Cream Pancakes with Raspberry Sauce

NOTES:

-If you like your syrup/sauce to be more on the sweet side, go ahead and add some more sugar.

-These freeze and reheat beautifully in a toaster or microwave. I usually freeze my extra pancakes in a gallon freezer bag or large storage container with each layer separated by baking paper.
