almond joy pancakes

almond joy pancakes | my skinny sweet tooth

Dessert for breakfast. One of my favorite things. Another favorite thing? When it’s healthier and guilt-free. Boom & boom!

With the weather warming up, I’ll be using a lot of coconut in my dishes. It’s a light, tropical taste that packs big flavor with minimal points (if used the right way 😉 ). I just recently made skinny almond joy bars, and as I knew it would, they didn’t last long. I may have a bar or two left, but they probably wouldn’t be the best breakfast choice. So, pancakes it is! Chocolate (protein!) pancakes topped with coconut maple cream, shredded coconut & sliced almonds … I know, right?! Candy Pancakes for breakfast!! Continue reading “almond joy pancakes”

derby pie pancakes (with bourbon vanilla cream)

derby pie pancakes | my skinny sweet tooth

It’s Derby day here in the good ‘ol state of Kentucky! My husband and I live in derby trifecta, but we don’t usually  partake in derby festivities (besides placing a bet here and there. Go Intense Holiday!) However, the derby food scene is incredible. Mint Juleps, Hot Browns, and the oh so delicious Derby Pie: filled with chocolate, pecans, and BOURBON. Nothing like some booze in your pie.  Or in this case, first thing in the morning pancake style 😉

Even though I didn’t use actual bourbon in the recipe, I found a pure bourbon vanilla extract at Trader Joes. I’ve used it in my egg mixture for french toast and many other things. If you can, get you some! I hear it’s great in cookies, too 😉

These pancakes may look and taste fancy, but it’s nothing of the sorts. (I may or may not have wanted to put on a fascinator or luxe derby hat while I ate these) 😉  It has minimal ingredients and so easy to throw together. And here’s how I did it.

Go baby go! Continue reading “derby pie pancakes (with bourbon vanilla cream)”

S’more Pancakes

s'more pancakes | my skinny sweet tooth

Ok.

I surrender, no longer in denial … I’m an addict. A full-blown, could-eat-it-everyday addict.

I’m addicted to s’mores. I would probably bleed chocolate and marshmallow if a vampire found it’s way to my jugular. What? Vampires?  Good grief. Anyway, back to my s’more’s obsession. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snack, Dessert. Yes, ANYTIME! … and today, it’s breakfast 🙂

coconut & banana pancakes

IMG_0314

It’s no secret I love a good pancake. Throw in some of my favs (coconut, peanut butter, banana) and my day is golden. At least it’s starting in the right direction. The pancake batter is very, very similar to the Protein pancake recipe previously posted, but I omitted the protein powder and added some of this and that. You could always add protein powder, if you so incline. I’m sure it would be delicious, too!
