Chocolate Black Bean Pancakes
Ok. So I recently joined the dōTERRA team and its one of the best decisions I've ever made. Seriously. Not only are their essential oils absolutely amazing but they also have a terrific blog for DIY and recipes!!! That is how this morning's breakfast was born.
A few weeks ago I hosted and Essential Oils 101 class. To make things even more awesome I selected a few recipes from the dōTERRA blog to have tastings of what it's like to cook with essential oils. I chose seltzer with wild orange EO, garlic hummus with lemon EO, and peppermint EO and black bean brownies. Take my word for it. It was all awesome.
This morning I tweaked the brownie recipe and make decisions pancakes topped with our own maple syrup, chia seeds, and strawberries. If I could find my Wild Orange EO, believe me, I'd have put that in too!
1 can Organic Black Beans, drained
1/2 cup Organic Cocoa Powder, or more if you like
