Sweet Withdrawals – S’more Protein Pancakes

20130930-222745.jpg

Okay it’s the day after Christmas but I’m not ready for sugar withdrawals. I wish I’d had time for baking this season, but instead I ate half the fudge and a large portion of cookies off of my sister-in-laws cookie platter on Christmas Eve. And I am getting back into the workout routine and healthy eating, really. But for all of us who still have that sweet tooth, let’s dig into these S’more Protein Pancakes. What better use of the marshmallows and Hershey bars we have lying around from holiday baking right?

Smore Protein Pancakes
Ingredients:
1 cup oats
1 cup wheat flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 oz wedge grated Mexican chocolate
1 Hershey bar
1 cup marshmallows
3-4 Tb boiling water
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 scoop vanilla soy protein powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups soy milk

Begin by mixing the oats, flour, sugar and Mexican chocolate in a blender or food processor. Add the protein powder, baking soda and salt. Blend in the eggs and soy milk.

Preheat a nonstick pancake griddle over medium heat. Spray lightly with cooking spray and pour pancakes into 1/4 cup ladles onto hot griddle surface. Let the pancake cook and bubble around the edges, about 1 min and flip and cook through another 45 seconds, until lightly browned.

Combine the marshmallows and boiling water in a small saucepan and warm over low heat until fluffy.

Layer pancakes, 1/4 of the Hershey bar and marshmallow fluff. Dust with cinnamon and serve. Makes 4 yummy servings.

These pancakes are super kid friendly, with heart smart oatmeal and healthy fat chocolate and spicy cinnamon for a healthy blood flow. And just enough sweet to make you forget they are actually good for you. 😉

Okay now to proceed with the day’s workout-and reward myself with protein and chocolate!
