Recipe Notes

Serving Suggestions:

  • Replace chocolate spread with a nut butter or sugar free peanut butter.  Not only is it equally delicious but it is more nutritious and naturally sweet instead of being laden down with sugar.
  • Put a large dollop of yogurt on your pancake and top with raspberries, blueberries or strawberries
  • Place some mandarins along the middle of your pancake and roll.  Make sure the mandarins are juicy!
  • Something simple… A little drizzle of lemon juice
