Chocolate Pancakes

Hi Everyone,

Half way through the week already.  I can’t understand how the days go so fast, yet the work hours go so slow.  I am such a clock watcher, it’s a horrible habit.  Even when I’m having fun, I watch the clock, knowing that my fun time will be over soon.  That is so strange, why do I do that?  Right now I am waiting for the weekend because it’s suppose to be nice out and I get to make a new breakfast creation.  Ohhh, what should it be?  This past Saturday I made one of my best chocolaty pancakes ever!!

These pancakes were like eating a piece of chocolate cake for breakfast, but the only difference is, that these are healthy!  Yup, healthy!!  Actually I was thinking of making them again and freezing them and having them for dessert topped with just a smidge of ice cream and maybe some berries.  Sounds weird doesn’t it?  If you make them, you’ll understand.

I made these bad boys with unsweetened cocoa powder, greek yogurt and whole wheat pastry flour and some other good things.  When I figured out the calories I couldn’t believe my eyes.  These are the lowest calorie pancakes I have made yet!  Are you sitting down?  You better be because when you find out there 138 calories for THREE of them you may fall over, I almost did, but realized I need to eat them, can’t waste my time laying on the kitchen floor!

To add a little color to the pancakes, I added a few egg-shaped sprinkles that I found in my cupboard.  Doesn’t it make them look all festive?  There shape looks like the chocolate covered sunflower seeds that I buy from TJ’s.  I just think there so cute!  he he  Don’t they just want to make you smile?

I was amazed of all the fun things I found and threw out this weekend.  My Easter was spent cleaning my kitchen and I mean cleaning it!  I spent 6 hours cleaning.  The stove took forever and then I started cleaning everything off, dusting plants, cleaning appliances, rearranging my cupboards and even cleaning the backside of my microwave.  My kitchen is spic and span!!  One thing I found, which actually made a lot more room is I had some old spices that I found in the back of my drawer that expired in 2007.  I didn’t realize spices had expiration dates, but they do!  So I threw a lot of them out.  All that means is I can buy more!!  Any excuse to go shopping, right?  I even moved my counter top appliance around so I can be more efficient in the kitchen.  The only problem with that is, I’m not used to it and now my kitchen echos, which I find strange.  Have you done any spring cleaning this year?  Next is my livingroom, but maybe that will be next Sunday?

What is your favorite kind of pancake?  I honestly couldn’t tell you mine?  It’s to hard to decided.  I think pancakes are one of those foods that you can create to match your mood.  This weekend, because it was Easter, I had chocolate on the brain, even though I didn’t get any!  🙁  But these pancakes for sure make up for that!!

Time for me to figure out what to make for dinner.  I am hungry!!!  Have a great day, and don’t forget to enter my Trader Joe’s Giveaway!  You can win a $25.00 gift card and a jar of Cookie Butter.
