Peanut free, nut free, gluten free, dairy free, egg free
Makes 48 mini pancake muffins
• 2 1⁄2 c. gluten-free all-purpose flour
• 2 T. baking powder
• 1 T. oil (or applesauce)
• 1 T. flax meal
• 3 c. non-dairy milk (such as rice milk)
• 1⁄2 c. Don’t Go Nuts Sea Salted spread
• 1/2 c. allergy-free chocolate mini chips
• 1 – 5.3 oz. serving strawberry non-dairy soy yogurt
• 1/4 c. Don’t Go Nuts Chocolate spread
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, oil/applesauce and flax. Slowly add 2 1/2 c. of the 3 c. of non-dairy milk required. Add Don’t Go Nuts Sea Salted spread. Mix until a smooth batter is formed. (Gluten-free flour often requires more moisture. It was at this point I slowly added in the last 1/2 c. of non-dairy milk, as needed, to smooth out the batter.)
Lightly grease a mini muffin pan. Fill each cavity about 3/4 full with batter. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until it passes the “toothpick test.” Remove from oven and let cool in pan for 3-4 minutes, then transfer Pancake Muffins onto a cooling rack.
In a medium bowl, combine yogurt and Don’t Go Nuts Chocolate spread. Mix until a smooth “icing” is formed. Once the muffins are cooled, spread the icing onto the muffins with a knife or pipe on as you would a cupcake. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze “un-iced” for up to 3 months.
