Brownie Batter Pancakes {THM-E} & Hot Fudge Syrup-Sauce {THM-FP}

DSC_7211

I love brownie batter.  Prior to THM, I’ve been known to whip up a batch of brownies just so i could eat some of the batter before popping them in the oven.  True story.  Love the stuff.  Of course, regular old box-mix brownies are not on the THM plan, and for good reason!  They contain all sorts of processed and not-good-for-you ingredients.

And who doesn’t love pancakes?  Soft, fluffy, drenched in some sort of syrup-y goodness?  I mean you’d have to be crazy not to love pancakes.  And there’s so many flavor options – berry pancakes, chocolate chip pancakes, banana pancakes, apple-cinnamon pancakes, the list goes on an on.  I decided I wanted a chocolatey pancake. It took a couple of tries to come up with a recipe that I really was happy with, but I’m so glad I kept trying!

These brownie batter pancakes aren’t quite a fluffy as traditional pancakes, but they are oh-so-yummy.  And the best part?  You can eat the entire batch as ONE serving!  How awesome is that?  Oh wait…it gets better…you can also pour on this amazing Fuel Pull Chocolate Syrup!

Yes ma’am (or maybe you’re a sir?), this sauce is the icing on the (pan)cake!  You can’t go wrong with chocolate sauce!  I may or may not have licked the bowl clean after taking these photos.

Brownie Batter Pancakes {THM-E}

  • 2 tbsp whey protein powder
  • 1/4 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp Truvia (or other sweetener of choice)
  • pinch salt
  • 1-1/2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 6 Tbsp almond milk

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.  Heat skillet or griddle and spoon batter onto hot skillet.  Let cook until bubbles appear on the surface.  Flip over and cook another minute or so, until fully cooked.  Stack pancakes on serving plate and use Fudge Sauce to top them!

Hot Fudge Syrup-Sauce {THM-FP}

  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp Truvia (or other sweetener of choice)
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup water*
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Combine cocoa powder, truvia, and salt in small saucepan over medium-low heat.  Whisk in the water until smooth.  Heat to a boil; boil 3 minutes.  Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla.  Serve warm.  Store and leftover sauce in airtight container in refrigerator.
*This amount of water makes a medium-thick sauce.  Use more water for a thinner syrup.

Cookie Dough Shake {THM-FP}

DSC_5903

I.  Love.  Cookie Dough.  I could eat an entire batch of raw dough.  Well, pre-THM I would.  Not anymore.  But I do still crave that flavor from time to time.  So, I decided to try to make a shake that had those same comforting flavors.  I tried several versions of this shake before I finally ended up with a flavor that I felt really did taste as close to cookie dough as a shake could get.  I also wanted to keep this an FP drink so I could enjoy it anytime of the day.  I am happy with the results and I think you will too!

 

Start by adding 1/2 cup low fat or fat free cottage cheese to your blender along with 1/2 cup almond milk.

Next, add your sweetener of choice.  I found that I liked 2 doonks of THM stevia plus 2 tsp truvia.  I like a really sweet drink, but feel free to adjust the sweetness if you don’t like it as sweet.

Then add 1 tsp vanilla, 1/8 tsp butter extract, and 1/4 tsp molasses.

Toss in 1 oz. of dark chocolate.  I use the dark chocolate chunks, but you can use a bar of chocolate as well.

Lastly, add ice.  I like a medium-thick shake.  Not too thin, not too thick.  Adjust to your liking though.  I use about 1 or 1-1/2 cups of ice.

Blend until smooth and pour into a glass.  It tastes even better when you put it in a pretty glass!  I promise!  He he!
