Nutella Coffee Pancakes
 Happy Sunday Sunshines! It’s brunch time and guess what I’m making? Chocolate Pancakes! Yeah, you heard me… chocolate! It’s World Nutella Day and we are celebrating with Nutella Coffee Pancakes. A day dedicated to Nutella is well worth the celebrations (+ a great excuse to devour the chocolaty hazelnut spread all day long.) The hint of coffee really brings out the chocolate and hazelnut flavors.
Nutella Coffee PancakesBreakfast/Brunch is one of my favorite meals to cook, there are so many options! Pancakes are a great base for any flavor theme, you can pretty much add anything and they will taste even better. I topped these with fresh strawberries and agave syrup. You could serve these with strawberry compote, whipped cream, chocolate syrup, or just enjoy them on their own. As for now, we’re off to enjoy these sweet breakfast treats. Happy World Nutella Day!
