#CookandChomp Vegan Cinnamon Pancakes

I never forget Ryan and Esposito’s dialogue from Castle,

Pancakes, is just not breakfast!

While the context was entirely different, pancakes truly cannot be categorized into just breakfast, and waffles are even more special. Come winter and my chefs hat comes out along with my huge appetite. These cinnamon pancakes are super easy to make and bring out the holiday cheer perfectly.
