I have to confess.. I ate two batches of pancakes this morning. Batch #1 was berry pancakes, which I've posted before. Batch #2 was mocha pancakes with pumpkin "frosting". They're infused with coffee because sometimes a cup of coffee just isn't enough in the morning... sometimes you need to infuse your food with caffeine, too :)
-1/3 cup flour (I used wheat flour, you can use white if you prefer)
-1.5 tbsp sugar (or baking Splenda)
-1 tsp cocoa powder
-1/4 tsp baking soda
-3/4 tsp baking powder
-1/8 tsp salt
-sprinkle of cinnamon
-1/4 cup strong brewed coffee, chilled
-1/2 cup milk (or water if you want to lower the calories and make the coffee flavor stand out more), you may use more or less than 1/2 cup of liquid depending on how thick you want your pancakes to be.
And here's what I used for the "frosting". Feel free to taste and adjust as you mix, and change the ratio of these 3 ingredients depending on how sweet or pumpkin-y you want it to be.
-1/4 cup vanilla bean greek yogurt (I used the fat-free kind from Trader Joe's)
-1.5 tbsp pumpkin puree (I used Libby's)
-1.5 tsp torani sugar-free vanilla syrup (if you don't have this, you can use honey or maple syrup instead, with a little touch of vanilla extract)
