Do you like pancakes and chocolate mousse?

I woke up last Saturday morning and had a strong desire for pancakes.

Since I try to eliminate gluten from my diet, I could have made homemade buckwheat pancakes but I find them to be rather heavy.  So I decided to make my oatmeal banana pancake recipe.  I developed this oatmeal banana pancake recipe years ago for one of my detox programs.  I remember my participants raving about it.  So I put it together and hubby cooked up the pancakes.  What a healthy delightful treat!

Banana PancakesThese pancakes set the stage for a great day of relaxing.

One of the ways I relax is to organize things.  So I was in my massage office organizing books and I came across this container of clipped recipes that I had totally forgotten about.

Recipe clippings

In that pile of clippings I came across several recipes for chocolate mousse.  But each one either called for heavy cream or eggs.  Since I had already eaten eggs with my pancakes and since I try to eliminate dairy, not a one of them appealed to me.  BUT….I looked at one that called for heavy cream and said….I can make that with….

Chocolate Mousse

….coconut milk.  So I created a chocolate mousse recipe that was dairy free and egg free.  Check it out….it only takes about 5 minutes to make.  I think this is going to be my new “go to” recipe for dessert when entertaining.

I hope you try these recipes.  They are so easy and very nutritious.  If you try them I would love to get your feedback.

Well….that is it for today.  Thank you for inviting me into you day.  May it be filled with happiness and joy.
