Gluten Free Gingerbread Snowman Pancakes

Poppy is getting so close to being able to enjoy fun food like this. She can admire the face on the snowman and see that it is more than just a regular stack of pancakes. But then there are small things like chocolate candies and dark chocolate chips that she will 500% choke on. So for now these little guys are for Joel and I while Poppy gets the button and faceless snowman. She honestly didn’t even notice because she was so obsessed with the coconut on the pancakes as “snow”.

I saw Ambitious Kitchen make pancake snowman like this and I knew I had to recreate! I used my gluten free gingerbread pancake recipe but you can use any pancake recipe you’d like.

Gluten Free Gingerbread Pancakes:

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1-2 teaspoon cinnamon (I really like cinnamon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar (or my new favorite monkfruit sweetener from Lakanto)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1+1/4 cup almond milk
  • 3 eggs (I haven’t tried this with flax egg but maybe it would work?!)
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 tablespoons melted coconut oil

Snowman toppings:

  • Chocolate colored candies for the buttons
  • Dark chocolate chips for eyes and smile (I used Lakanto)
  • Broken piece of pretzel slim for the nose
  • Coconut shreds for the snow
  • Maple syrup for topping

Directions:

  • Whisk together dry ingredients in a large bowl, set aside.
  • Mix together wet ingredients and gently mix into dry ingredients.
  • Make pancakes in two different sizes. I used a 1/4 cup measuring spoon for the body and 2 tbsps of batter for the head. Plate, top, drizzle with maple syrup, and enjoy!

I paired our snowman pancakes with my peppermint mocha cold brew!

Mint Smoothie of Poppy’s Dreams, in collaboration with PlateJoy.

Smoothie holder, at your service! I thought smoothie season was over but then the San Diego weather jumped back into the nineties. SYKE. Smoothies are back on deck and Poppy gets her own smoothie now because if she doesn’t she drinks all of mine. And no one could say no to this face!

The smoothie we’ve had on repeat is the mint chip shake from PlateJoy. PlateJoy is a nifty app that I’ve been using for the last two months and it gives me so much life back! I spend less time figuring out our meals for the week and more time with Poppy. The recipes are delicious yet totally user friendly. Each week the meals change and you can switch up your preferences. Oh, and the weekly meal plans are created to reduce food waste so you won’t be buying 100 different ingredients each week. WINNING!

Click here to find out more about PlateJoy and this delicious smoothie recipe, both are truly a game changer. Do you like mint? I weirdly know quite a few people who don’t and that blows my mind!

Evolve the Day with Evolution Fresh

I want someone to look at me like Poppy looks at my Evolution Fresh kombucha. #EvolutionFresh #Sponsored

Being a stay-at-home mom has it’s highs and lows but the lows are seldom when I have a fridge stocked full of my favorite things. Having products in the house, like Evolution Fresh, make spending time with Poppy easier because I spend less time in the kitchen and more time with Poppy. I have been all about the Ginger Lemon Honeycrisp Kombucha lately. It’s the perfect combination of apple, lemon, and a kick of ginger! Poppy is growing so fast and I don’t want to miss a thing so grabbing one of these from the fridge has become a daily habit.
