So Good, You’ll Want Some-Moa!

I couldn’t help myself.

After last week’s Thin Mint Pancake success, I just HAD to flex my muscles spatula and try my hand at another Girl Scout cookie fave…

And well, I just can’t stop patting myself on the back…

    Vegan Samoa Cookie Pancakes -And because I KNOW I’m going to get questions and because YOU KNOW I love you guys, even though these came out fannnnnntastic on the first try, I went back in the kitchen and whipped up another batch with some substitutions…

    Which meant, I had to eat them again…

    Samoa Cookie PancakesOhhhhhh DARN! 😉

    The non-vegan version finds itself a little fluffier thanks to the egg whites, but still with all the great flavor of the first! Besides the texture, I literally could NOT tell the difference between these stacks if you asked me to!

    Samoa Cookie Pancakes-

    Recipe alterations:
    Substituted 1/2 scoop whey protein for 2 Tbsp of brown rice protein
    Added 1 large egg white, whisked before stirred in
    Omitted chia seed “egg” and applesauce
    Reduced almond milk to 1/3 cup instead of 2/3 cup

    If you do NOT have coconut flour:

    Just add more flour or protein powder to the mix

    In place of buckwheat flour:

    I would suggest oat flour (ground from rolled oats) since it has a lighter weight compared to other flours.

    No coconut flour?

    Make these coconut protein pancakes without the almond extract

    And finally, the butter flavor…

    DSC_0084Get it at Whole Foods, Got it, GOOD! 😀

    Totally optional, but tooooootally delicious!
