Mother’s Day breakfast is a longstanding tradition; the day mum’s all over the world get breakfast made for them instead of being the makers and today we’re lucky enough to have a very a special breakfast recipe from Abigail O’Neill who is an Australian model, mother of three and the author of the sensational healthy chocolate recipe book Model Chocolate.
Abigail might be one of the most dedicated mothers in Australia, for the last 25 years she has woken up at 6am to make her whole family delicious gourmet cooked breakfasts so it seems only fitting that we share one of her delicious chocolate recipes for you to spoil your mum with this Mother’s Day!
Abigail’s Couture Pancakes are one of the most popular breakfast recipes in her book and for good reason, in her own words they are, “Sugar, dairy and gluten free pancakes with a high protein content that taste like chocolate cake in a pancake.”
Sounds like heaven!
So take a leaf out of Abigail’s book this Mother’s Day and make a seriously gourmet (yet surprisingly easy) breakfast that will leave your mum feeling like she’s truly the best mum in the world.
And this might just be the best bit, these pancakes aren’t just any chocolate pancakes, every recipe in Abigail’s book is a recipe she swears by for helping her maintain her health and youthful looks at the age at 42 so not only is this a seriously yummy treat for mum, it’s seriously good one.
