Really want to share this recipe with you all for these vegan Cocoa Pancakes that I made the other day! They were delicious. I put white chocolate peanut butter on them as well. So delicious.
- 1 cup non-dairy milk
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup light spelt flour (or whole wheat, all purpose etc)
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ¼ cup + 2 tbsp cacao/cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 3 tbsp maple syrup (or agave nectar) plus extra for serving
- 1/4 cup liquid coconut oil (or other oil)
- 1.5 tsp vanilla extract
- Mix the non-dairy milk and apple cider vinegar in a small bowl and set aside to curdle, about 5 minutes.
- Mix the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, cinnamon and salt together in a large bowl until combined. Add the curdled milk, maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla. Mix with a wooden spoon until just combined. It should be a tad loose-seeming.
- Heat a large, non-stick pan over medium-low heat. Drop ¼ cup measures of the batter into the pan (not too many at a time!). When bubbles start to peak through the surface and you see a bit of light browning/crisping up on the underside, flip the pancakes over carefully, about 1-2 minutes. Repeat for the other side, remove from the pan and set aside on a covered plate to keep warm.

3 tbsp cocoa powder
1 scoop protein powder
1 tsp baking soda
- Melt chocolate in a small bowl.
- Mix wet ingredients. Mix dry ingredients. Combine into a batter.
- Carefully stir the melted chocolate into the batter (slowly to make sure not to scramble the eggs).
Bake at 200 degrees for about 15 mins. The consistency should be somewhat sticky, but not loose when it’s done. Serve cold.

Watermelon Tart! (tutorial)
Look at it closely! It looks like some kind of cake or tart right? but it’s not. It’s actually a watermelon cut into the shape of a cake with yogurt, strawberries, blueberries and nuts on top!
This is perfect for like an outdoor BBQ or Fourth of July! In the summer heat this must be like heaven?!
:O gimme gimme gimme! this is such a cool idea!
Healthy Peanut Butter cookies!
Only 36 calories per cookie!
1 Cup Peanut butter
1 Cup Sugar
1 TSP baking soda
Mix the peanut butter and sugar first then add in the egg and baking soda. Bake for 10 minutes on 350 degrees. They’re delicious!
The ingredients equal about 2500 calories, and judging by the photo I’m guessing this makes 18-20 cookies? Maybe 24? That’s 100 ish cals each at 24 cookies. Unless this recipe makes 70 cookies there is no way it’s just 36 calories per cookie.
Strawberry Frozen Yogurt
from Kitchen Confidante
2 pints strawberries, hulled and sliced
1/2 cup sugar
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 cup creamy vanilla yogurt
1 cup 2% Greek yogurt
Combine the strawberries, sugar and lemon juice in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Adjust sweetness if necessary with more sugar. When the sugar is dissolved, lower heat to a simmer and let it cook for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and chill until completely cool.
Take 1/2 of the sauce and stir together with the vanilla yogurt and Greek yogurt. Pour into the pre-frozen bowl of your ice cream maker and churn for about 30 minutes, or until it has achieved a thick, frozen yogurt consistency. Enjoy immediately or store in a tightly sealed container in the freezer. Serve with remaining strawberry sauce.

“World’s healthiest cookie” 6 calories per bite!
The World’s Healthiest Cookie
This dough takes two minutes to whip up, so in under 10 minutes, you can be scarfing down delicious coconut flour cookies. And really, check out these stats!
- *Update: There has been some question about the nutritional info, and for clarification, these having only 6 calories each is based upon a bite-sized cookie. If you only make 8 cookies out of this recipe to make them more traditional sized, they will have about 15 calories each. Still a calorie bargain, if you ask me!
- Per bite based on 16 bites
- Calories: 6 (about 8 or 9 with chocolate chips)
- Fat: <0.5 grams
- 2 Tablespoon coconut flour
- 2 Tablespoon mashed banana or applesauce (I prefer banana. Personally, I think applesauce gives them too much of an apple-y taste. That’s just me.)
- pinch salt
- stevia or other sweetener, to taste
- 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
- 3 Tablespoon almond milk, or milk of choice
- chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- In a small bowl, mix coconut flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Add in masked banana or applesauce and stir.
- Add in almond milk, one tablespoon at a time until fully incorporated.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Drop dough by tablespoon or teaspoon, depending on how big you want them, on a parchment lined baking sheet. (I used a silicone mat.)
- Flatten the dough into cookie shapes.
- Bake in the oven at 350F for 10 minutes.
- Let cool before scarfing them all down.
- By the way, you are allowed to eat the entire batch! ;)
I want to make these. With lots and lots of chocolate chips.
