S’mores Pancakes with a wish list

 

 

Happpppppy Fridayyyyyy!

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 ūüôā

S’mores Pancakes (Serves 1)

Ingredients

  • 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)
Directions
  • Combine flour, baking powder, ground flax-seed, sweetener and salt to a bowl.
  • Next add egg whites and almond milk. Mix¬†thoroughly.
  • Add in dark chocolate chips, crushed graham cracker (1/4) and mini marshmallows

  • Pour batter into olive oil sprayed skillet over medium high heat

  • Cook for 2-3 minutes or until it bubbles and is firm enough to flip.
  • Gently flip and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Add to a plate.

  • Sprinkle 1/4 of the graham cracker over pancakes, drizzle a little bit of sugar-free chocolate syrup and add a dollop of sugar-free cool whip to the top.

You don’t need syrup. The chocolate does the work.

Yum, Yum goodness.

Eat.me.
