Smoothie Girl Pancakes

by HEAB on November 28, 2009

Did you guys see Deb’s most brilliant smoothie post today? If not, you better go read, for it was the inspiration behind my breakfast this morning.

Pancakes came one day early this week…


That’s right. It was pancake Saturday in the HEAB household. I made a batch of protein pancakes using Jay Robb chocolate rice protein powder, but the topping was the star of the show. I used the following ingredients to make my very own Mole sauce:


I stirred together 1 heaping spoonful of reader Carolyn’s chipotle almond butter, 2 tsp cocoa powder, 2 tsp espresso powder (could sub instant coffee grounds), cinnamon, 1 packet of stevia, and a little water to thin. Oh, and I did add 1 squirt of peanut butter flavored FrankenSyrup (I blame Deb for this purchase. Not necessary in the recipe…but really good none the less. 😉 )

My sauce coupled with a bit of soy free Earth Balance and extra cinnamon made for an incredible explosion of flavors in my mouth that I can’t even begin to describe…sort of like spicy sweet cafe mocha pancakes…wow! Scott, now I really need to try one of your Pick Me Up smoothies. :)

I have much more to share as I had a very exciting morning, but you’ll have to check back later to read all about it. Until then my friends…
