These stack and slice beautifully!

I'm a chocolate fanatic but unlike the overly sweet chocolate nightmares that are out there, I lean towards the less sweet but still rich chocolate flavors. I use cacao and dark chocolate almost daily in my diet. Cacao is full of health benefits including a high amount of iron and calcium which if you aren't eating animal products, you may be lacking. Honestly, I just love the flavor. It's especially good with the slightly salty taste of peanut products. I like to use the PB2 Powdered Peanuts with Premium Chocolate when having rich chocolatey foods to give a nice mix of flavors. This pancake stack is vegan, low fat, healthy, and great for a busy day ahead.
