Meatless Monday: Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

_MG_1401

Hot cake, hot cake – who wants a hot cake? I’ll take two please…make that three! Welcome to my world cinnamon roll pancakes, cause you are staying with me forever!

On meatless Monday I usually start my day off with a beet juice – consisting of apple, celery, lemon…ya know all those goodies you want after an indulging weekend! So when I woke up with carbs on my mind I knew I needed to nix the juice! Mission: fix my carb craving. Found just the recipe – cinnamon roll pancakes, hello tasty! These delicious cakes were eaten up fast & the glaze was licked clean off that plate (TMI?).

  • In a large bowl mix: 1C whole wheat flour, 1T sugar, 2T baking powder, 1/8t salt, 1C almond milk, 2T melted coconut butter & 1.5T ground cinnamon – stir till smooth consistency
  • Preheat griddle (or pan) & spray with cooking oil – spoon portion of batter on griddle, I used a large ice cream scoop to portion my pancakes & it worked wonders
  • Brown on both sides – set finished cake to the side & continue process until all batter is used up
  • In side bowl combine: 2T almond milk, 1/8t vanilla extract & 1/3C powdered sugar
  • Whisk until all the chunks are gone

Grab as many pancakes as your lil’ heart desires (no judging here!) & top with sugary glaze!
