image

I look forward to Saturday’s as I always make pancakes! I came up with these last week and eyeballed everything so I didn’t have a recipe, so by request I made them again and wrote down the ingredients! Here is the recipe↓↓

Pancakes:
Serves 2 (appx. 10 pancakes)

▶Ingredients:
•1C Oat flour
•1/2C Spelt flour *(see notes below for options)
•1tsp baking powder
•1-2Tbsp xylitol or raw sugar of choice
•1Tbsp cinnamon
•1-1/2 scoops of chocolate protein powder
•2Tbsp cocao powder
•1tsp vanilla
•1 egg
•1/2C applesauce
•1-1/2C unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
•1/2C cold brewed coffee (can use more a.milk instead if don’t have coffee)
•1/2Tbsp chia seeds
•2Tbsp vegan chocolate chips (optional)

*You can use all oat flour or all spelt flour if desired or switch measurements around, also whole wheat flour will work.

▶Directions:
Mix all dry ingredients together until well combined, add all wet ingredients and mix until well combined then add chia seeds and chocolate chips.

Preheat pan and spray with cooking spray or oil of choice. Spoon appx. 1/4C of mixture into pan and cook for 2-3 minutes per side.

Now for the chocolate topping! Easy peasy.

▶Chocolate Sauce:
•1Tbsp dark chocolate peanut butter melted (or any nut butter of choice)
•1Tbsp cocao powder
•3-4Tbsp unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
•1tsp raw honey

▶Melt peanut butter, add all other ingredients and whisk with fork until well combined, be patient it will mix. Depending on how thick you like your sauce you can add more or less milk, I used 4Tbsp as I like mine more liquidy. Drizzle over stacked pancakes and top with 1 square of Lindt 85% dark cocao bar chopped.

Enjoy ♡

Peanut Butter Cups

Yummy healthy version of peanut butter cups, next time I will make my own chocolate.

Ok so I didn’t really measure the ingredients,  but this should do. I had leftover peanut butter mixture, but that’ll be gone in no time. I made 12 mini cups.

▶Ingredients:

•300g (appx 1.25Cups) Dark chocolate (I used 85% dark chocolate and organic vegan chocolate chips) you may require more or less chocolate,  just have lots on hand.
•1/2C natural peanut butter
•1/4C almond butter
•2Tbsp coconut oil
•1Tbsp agave or maple syrup
•1/4C large flake oats
•2Tbsp vegan chocolate chips

▶Combine all ingredients except chocolate and 2Tbsp chocolate chips in saucepan over low heat until well incorporated,  let cool slightly, add the 2Tbsp chocolate chips just before scooping into cups so they dont melt.  Meanwhile melt 300g of chocolate over double boiler or in microwave if you like.

Line mini muffin tin with liners or use silicone mini muffin tray. Spread appx. 1-2tsp of chocolate into liners bringing chocolate up sides, place in freezer for 10-15min until hardened. Add scoop of peanut butter mixture (don’t forget to add the 2Tbsp chocolate chips) into hardened chocolate, put back in freezer for another 15-20 minutes. Top with more chocolate on top (may need to heat chocolate up again) place back in freezer for at least 1hr before enjoying. Store in freezer or fridge.

Yield 12 servings ♡
