Coffee Pancakes Madness!!!

WP_20141205_004

This pancakes are a bomb! Inside of each bite is a celebration of the best flavors: dark chocolate, coffe, and peanut butter! The pancake are moist and soft and the greek yogurt is very creamy. It is made of unsweetened cocoa powder, brwon sugar and Peanut Butter Co Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter. This is my favorite peanut butter ever! It combines with many ingredients and you can use it for any recipe. This magic jar contains 13g of fat, 12g of crabohydrates and 6g of protein in each 2tbsp you take. The jar is not expensive. The only place I had seen it in Puerto Rico was at a local pharmacy in the Old San Juan at $6.00. But if you live in the United States, I guess it will be easier to find.

I decided to turn more into the vegan life and I developed a very simple and succesful recipe of pancakes. One of the pancakes I enjoy the most are the coffee flavored ones. They are easily sweetened and have a peculiar texture. I will post pictures of two different ways to eat and garnish them. The first one, has greek yogurt and is topped with banana and dark chocolate chips.

The other, is topped with peanut butter and a cocoa syrup. I also added granada arils and blackberries so you may add any fruit you like.
