Dark Chocolate Nasoya Silken Creations and Treats!

I know I have written about the vanilla flavor before and how great I think it is! Now for the Dark Chocolate Silken Creation...this stuff is so good. It is thick, creamy and oh so chocolaty. I had two containers, so we ate some plain and I played with some. I know you are not supposed to play with your food, but I just can't resist! First I went with a version of my own pancakes and decided to make chocolate pancakes. These are so good! They are light, fluffy and very chocolaty. They come together really quickly, so they are an easy way to make a chocolate sweet treat or have for breakfast (or dinner in our case)! These are sweet on their own, so I just put a little powder sugar and cocoa powder on top. If you are looking for something a little more decadent, dairy free caramel or chocolate sauce would be good too. Oh and dairy free ice cream would be so good. Me, I just ate them warm like a cookie!
Dark Chocolate Pancakes

1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 Dark Chocolate Nasoya Silken Creations

Lightly spoon both flours into measuring cup and level. Combine all of the dry ingredients in a bowl. Then add the Dark Chocolate Silken Creation to the dry mixture. Stir just until combined. Poor batter onto a hot nonstick griddle or skillet that has been coated with cooking spray. Flip pancakes when little bubbles star to form on top and the edges look cooked. These stay chocolaty and creamy on the inside! Be careful not to over cook them since they are dark to begin with and you don't want them to burn.
This is a chocolate cake that I based on the brownie recipe on the Nasoya website. They have a list of recipes using this product. This one was a cross between chocolate cake and chocolate bread. It had the texture of devil's food cake and the sweetness of chocolate bread. A fudge icing or diary free ice cream (or both) would go really well with this, as well!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray the bottom and sides of an 13 X 9 pan with cooking spray. Mix together the flours, salt and baking powder. Place the light margarine and brown sugar in a microwavable bowl. Microwave the mixture until the margarine is melted. Stir well to combine. Let cool slightly. Add the Nasoya Dark Chocolate Silken Creations to the margarine mixture and stir well. Next add the chocolate mixture to the flour mixture. Stir just until combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
