We all know Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson doesn’t look the way he does by eating pancakes all day. But apparently, when he does take a “cheat day”, he makes some scrumptious coconut banana flapjacks, and the internet loves it.
Now, he finally shared the recipe on Instagram, so we can indulge too.
Take a look:
