Disclaimer – I took a few short cuts but who doesn’t like a quick and delicious recipe!

I was looking for something quick and easy before work so I looked in the pantry and saw the glorious shakeable bottle of Bisquick pancake mix & the crack in a jar, AKA, Nutella. ( I said I quit the stuff but I guess I’m back on 😓).

Any who, I heated my pan and poured 4 small circles of the mix. I had originally set out to make regular size pancakes but I was too lazy to lug out the griddle and who doesn’t love mini pancakes?!

While the lil babies were bubbling I decided I should probably add some fruit to this thing. Nutella just has a way of making me feel guilty. I cut up some banana and a couple of strawberries then flipped my pancakes. Multitasking is key!

Once each pancake was done, I plated it and immediately smeared Nutella on to the steaming pancake. There’s nothing like ooey gooey chocolate goodness, at that point it’s basically fondue . Yummm!

Next, I made a neat little layer of banana and strawberry then another pancake hot off the griddle, more Nutella, then fruit… And okay! …You get the picture right.

I topped the whole thing off with more than a dollop of whip cream and a sprinkling of chia seeds ( the Nutella guilt got me again).

I must say that two stackers were quite satisfying and I was full till lunch. Recipe below:
