Maple & Flax "Peanut Butter" Pancake-Cookies

Good Afternoon Peeps!  How’s your day so far?  Mine has been so much fun because I’ve been whippin’ up all kinds of treats.  I’ve wasted no time putting my Ani Cookbook to great use. 

I whipped up a batch of her Coconut Breakfast Cakes (p.78) if anyone has the book.  Although, I would say that because I used toasted flax seeds, that my pancakes could be called Maple & Flax “Peanut Butter” Pancake-Cookies, even though there’s no actual PB in them.  The toasted flax gives off a wonderfully pea-nutty flave.  Yumm. 

Here’s Ani’s picture of her creations.

Here’s mine.

I started off by putting toasted flax seeds, maple syrup, and coconut oil into my VitaGrinder

Ingredients needed to make Maple & Flax "Peanut Butter" Pancake-Cookies in blender

Pulled out the resulting dough blob.  And formed 4 little pancake-cookies.

They were really awesome on their own.  Soft, rich, chewy, and peanut buttery tasting…

…But a touch of Maple Syrup took ’em to new brekkie heights.

I wrapped the rest up for on-the-go snacks and Scott’s lunch for later.

The whole thing took me about 10 minutes, including cleanup.  3 ingredients.  And yes, for all those keeping track, I did tweak Ani’s recipe.  I can’t not tweak I’ve determined.

Anyway, thanks for the great comments on all the piercings and tats you all have, it’s been great reading all bout everyone’s art work! 

As far as the questions in my last post about Easy Eats and Seated Forward Bends...Elise, my hubs takes the pics.  And thanks for the compliments on my arms in the comments section.

Also I wanted to send a big shoutout to Elisabeth of Jogger’s Life!  She sent me these little blondie and chocolate raw vegan macaroons.  Thank you so much sweetie!!!!!!!!!   Muah!  They’re most delish but best of all I felt soooo special opening up a gift from a reader and friend :)  xoxo!

A little less exciting were the 2 loaves of bread the Food Buzz and Nature’s Pride peeps sent.  For all your Food Buzz bloggers, make sure you get in on the gluten action.  These will come in handy in our casa for Scott & Skylar.

Ok so if anyone tries the Maple, Coconut & Flax Pancake Cookies, holla!  They would also be most excellent with raisins, walnuts, nut butter, or fruit.  Either garnished on top or even in the batter.  Tweak away friends!

And tomorrow, you are in for a ridic treat.  I do mean ridic.  Raw Vegan Cheesecake.  Holy crap I have just outdone myself.  Sorry for the lack ‘o modesty, but it really is that good.   C’mon back in the a.m.  Janetha, girl I’ve got you in mind based on your request….

But in the meantime, I want the rest of you to tell me whatcha want me to make and feature on the blog?  I love suggestions!
