As promised, the second of my Holiday recipe roundup. Now that we are in the “legit” wintertime, all I want is Holiday pancakes. Between Eggnog, gingerbread and now peppermint I guess I have my heart set until New Years…
I had debated how on earth I was going to get the “peppermint flavor”. For me personally, I’m not a huge peppermint fan but I do enjoy it now and again. I quested around Wal-Mart and found they even sold peppermint extract flavor..as well as every flavor imaginable from root beer to butter. Seriously, when you go to Wal-Mart check out their baking section. I thought vanilla extract was the only thing they sold but boy was I wrong.
½ cup flour
½ cup milk-1 cup milk depending on the consistency you like your pancakes
2 tsp peppermint extract
1 tablespoon oil
Chocolate chips…It seemed appropriate at the time (chocolate and peppermint)
Sweetener to taste and for me I like sweet things so I added about ½ cup stevia. I’m not joking. I don’t tell lies.
I actually wasn’t sure how I would like these pancakes, seeing as peppermint isn’t my favorite flavor in the world but I loved them! I think it was combination of the chocolate and peppermint. So yes, they are a win.
Question for you:
1. Chocolate and peppermint or just one or the other?
2. Favorite Holiday flavor?
