I usually suck at making pancakes. Probably because I’m used to making my eggs pancake-style (just beaten and dumped in the pan, then flipped) and eggs are a whole lot more forgiving than pancakes. But these pancakes not only came out perfectly, but were also really tasty. Especially after a 6 mile run with intervals. And with a sliced banana and almond butter. Nom.
(On a random note, I really like etymology. Like for the word pancake. Pancakes are really just cakes that are cooked on the stove in a pan instead of in the oven! Like pan-fried chicken instead of baked chicken. Pan-cakes. Hehe.)
And now for something I’ve been wanting to share: I made something the other day inspired by these banana bites from Chocolate Covered Katie –
Here I followed the recipe for the chocolate cups from CCK but made my own filling. I mixed ~2 teaspoons of coconut butter and ~1/4 teaspoon matcha powder for one cup. It was amazing. But then again, I really love green tea. Definitely try if you’re a tea fan!
Dark Chocolate Matcha Green Tea Cups
For instructions on making the chocolate cups, check out this post.
For the filling, to fill 9-10 mini cupcake liners:
- 7 TBSP coconut butter
- 2.5 tsp matcha powder
Mix together the coconut butter and matcha powder well and use to fill chocolate cups. It’s that easy ;)
I hope everyone’s week is off to a great start!
