Last night I ate my dinner and dessert in record time. How? I combined them. I couldn’t decide if I wanted a breakfast sandwich or pancakes for dinner but I finally chose pancakes. Not just ANY pancakes – S’mores pancakes. Growing up S’mores was ALWAYS my favorite dessert. I even asked for a s’mores maker one Christmas. There’s something about a warm marshmallow and gooey chocolate on a graham cracker that just makes me smile
S’mores Pancakes (Serves 1)
- 1/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour (whole wheat or all-purpose would work too)
- 1 1/2 tbsp ground flax-seed
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 packet of nunaturals stevia (splenda or sugar would work too)
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup egg whites
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (add more if you want thinner batter)
- 1/2 tbsp dark chocolate chips
- 10 mini marshmallows (i used colorful ones, because I’m 5)
- 1/4 of a crushed graham cracker
- Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup (topping)
- Sugar Free Cool Whip (topping)
- 1/4 of a graham cracker broken into pieces (topping)
- Combine flour, baking powder, ground flax-seed, sweetener and salt to a bowl.
- Next add egg whites and almond milk. Mix thoroughly.
