Chocolate-Brown Pancakes

So the other night I was sitting with my mom and sister and I began talking to my sister about lady gaga and how my mom had been watching a lady gaga special on mtv the night before, when my mom pipes into our convo and says…”I think she might be kind of weird.” Needless to say my sister and I had a good laugh. Seriously?…Just kind of weird?  She’s Lady Gaga!  I’m pretty sure she’s so well recognized because of her desire to be different.  Which I have no problem with…whatever floats your boat 🙂

I just felt like sharing.

Now onto the best meal of the day.  I was feeling both oats and pancakes, but in the end pancakes won out since I had the extra time to make them.  It was a bit on the brown side today…

But that didn’t keep it from being some of the best pancakes I’ve ever made!  I ate every last bite, even though it was borderline too much.  I’m just going to say I purposely made them this way because one of my favorite foods just happens to be this color.

Chocolate-Brown Pancakes

  • 1/2 cup Kodiak Cake Mix
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 huge T organic low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1 T ground flax
  • ~ 1-2 T peanut flour
  • 1/2 t extra virgin coconut oil for greasing pan
  • 1 banana, sliced into rounds

Chocolate PB Sauce

  • 5 t chocolate pb2
  • 4 t peanut flour
  • water until right consistency

Combine first 5 ingredients (up to peanut flour) and stir until combined.  Grease pan with coconut oil and cook pancakes at medium low heat.

I layered bananas and chocolate PB sauce between each pancake and topped off with more bananas, pb sauce, walnuts, and a sprinkle of reduced fat shredded coconut.  Those blackish specks may not be all that attractive looking, but have no fear, its just chocolate!

Check out the layers…Good to the last bite!

I have to go get a shot in my arm today at the clinic.  I’m not really looking forward to it…

What’s your greatest fear in life?  I’m not necessarily deathly afraid of shots.  I just don’t like them.  What I do dislike and fear though is spiders.  They creep me out.

  1. not a spider fan here, either. the other day I was going to take a shower when I turned around and there was this HUGE spider propelling itself from the ceiling. I let out a loud “OH MY GOD!!!” Before gaining composure and wrangling him into and down the toilet.
    Just thought you’d love to know that story about me, my bathroom and spiders 😛

    anyways. these pancakes look fantastic. i’ve said it before, i’ll say it again; I’ll come for b-fast at your place any time!

    Hope all went well at the clinic today!

      Hahha, that sounds JUST like me! …except the spider was hiding in my yoga mat and I wasn’t quick enough and it crawled into a crevice and I was too slow/freaked out that I couldn’t get it.

      I’m down for making extras to share anytime 🙂

    I am soo affraid of spiders! When I was younger and still lived with my parent, whenever I saw a spider on a wall, I always run for my dad to come and conquer the leggy creature:)

  4. Spiders, wasps, lady bugs…I hate anything with creep crawly legs! And the more unpredictable their moves, the more intense the hatred! Eeee! I’m getting the heebie jeebies just thinking about it! :-/

    That is THE most gorgeous stack of pancakes! Love the layering! And you photos are insane! I love the cut away shot!
