I have a confession: I used to have a candy bar addiction.

Well, it may not have been a full blown addiction per se. But I’ve mentioned before on the blog that when I was pregnant with my son, I started eating candy bars every day. Terrible idea, yikes. That bad habit took me a while to break.

On my forays to the grocery store, I loved to get Snickers, Reese’s, and Almond Joy or Mounds bars. I do love coconut and chocolate together, they are such a great combo!

These days I’m a lot more health conscious and my stomach is a lot more sensitive so I can’t have that stuff like I used to, so I make healthier and homemade versions of those treats. And what could be better than your favorite candy bar in a healthy pancake recipe (gluten-free and vegan, too)?! Whoa 🙂

Almond Joy candy bars were one of my favorite types of candy bars back then (sometimes I’ll have one occasionally! can’t have too many due to the dairy in them). But my kids can’t have almonds, so we made some Chocolate Coconut Pancakes (aka Mounds pancakes) so everyone could eat them.

If you want to make these into Almond Joy pancakes, just add some chopped or sliced almonds to the top of your pancake stack or mixed into the filling.
