Hazelnut Coffee Pancakes

I've been so excited to make hazelnut coffee creations after I purchased my coffee extract and hazelnut flavored stevia from iherb.com (use discount code ZSG766 to get money off your first order!) These are the perfect pick-me-up breakfast. The cauliflower makes them extra moist and fluffy (no you don't taste it!). Plus you get some veggies in at breakfast! 



Hazelnut Coffee Pancakes 

Ingredients:  

1/3 cup riced cauliflower (using a food processor, pulse until cauliflower resembles rice)
1/4 cup oatmeal
2 tablespoons chocolate whey (or vanilla)
1 tablespoon coconut flour
1/2 tablespoon psyllium husk
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon coffee extract 
10 hazelnut stevia drops

Directions:

1. Cook cauliflower rice in the microwave for 40 seconds.
2. Grind oats into oat flour with a food processor. Add the remaining ingredients (and the cauliflower!) and blend well. 
3. Heat a large, nonstick pan over medium high heat. Coat with cooking spray. Make sure the pan is hot!
4. Add the batter by the spoonful. Flip when the edges set and small bubbles start to form. Cook another 2-3 minutes on the other side.
