Brown Butter Pecan Pancakes

Butter pecan is one of my favorite flavors. And if you don’t know already, I will tell you again how much I love pancakes. I love them a lot. So, it was only a matter of time before I combined the two. Today I bring you Brown Butter Pecan Pancakes.

It was inevitable that I would find a recipe and try them and fall in love with them.

So, here I am sharing them with you. You are very welcome.

They take a bit of extra time to brown the butter. But believe me when I tell you that it is so worth it. They taste awesome.

And nothing more is needed to make them awesome then to eat them warm with butter (yes, more of it) and syrup.

Simple and delicious breakfast.
