Peppermint Mocha Pancakes

Peppermint Mocha (1)

In honor of Christmas, I made this delicious pancakes with organic peppermint and local coffee and cocoa. I drizzled agave and topped them with organic candy canes that I bought at Freshmart. Each candy cane weight 14g and there are 14g of carbohydrates in each. I used about 7g of a candy cane for garnishing the pancackes.

Feel free to add to the batter pieces of dark chocolate or candy canes or both! They are great for a brunch in the Hollydays with your family.
