dash of salt
1teaspoonof grass-fed butterghee or oil of choice for pan
COOKIE DOUGH MIDDLE:
½cupof natural cashew butter or almond butter
2 ½tablespoonsof dark chocolate chipsEnjoy Life Brand, chopped
Combine the nut butter, cinnamon, sugar, vanilla, and chopped chocolate chips, and mix well. You may need to soften the nut butter slightly (microwave a few seconds) depending on the consistency. Or if your nut butter is particularly thick you can add a little melted coconut oil as well.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment.
Smear 1 tablespoon of cookie dough with a spoon, making a flat disk. You should have about 8.
Place in the freezer to set while you make the batter!
To make the pancakes whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, coconut sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
Make a well in the center and add egg, luke warm almond milk, and melted coconut oil.
Wisk all the ingredients together, it may be thick and a little clumpy, which is fine, but do not over mix the batter.
Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, and add a touch of coconut oil (or coconut oil spray).
Remove cookie dough disks from the freezer and remove them from the parchment paper.
Laddle pancake batter in the skillet (turn temp down to medium- no oil smoking!).
Allow pancake to set and you will see bubbles rising and the pancake with cook through (no wet batter). (*or for the lazy version make two pancakes and layer the cookie dough in between-it will melt between the pancakes, they just will not be officially "stuffed.")
Check the bottom of the pancake to make sure it is not burning, if so, turn temp down.
Once there is no runny batter on the top, place a cookie dough disk on top and laddle just enough pancake batter to cover the disk, then flip pancake and finish cooking.
If you pancakes are too thick and not cooking through, dilute the batter further with additional almond milk.
