How to Make Chocolate Protein Pancakes:
One of the reasons I love this recipe is because it’s so easy and requires minimal dishes. See for yourself!
Step 1: Blend Ingredients Together
Add all pancake ingredients to a blender and blend until batter is smooth and well-combined.
Step 2: Cook The Chocolate Protein Pancakes
Grease a pan or skillet and bring to medium heat. Pour batter from the blender onto the pan (approx. 1/4 cup per pancake) and cook until bubbles form (2-3 minutes). Flip, and cook on the other side for another 1-2 minutes. Repeat for the rest of the batter.
Step 3: Top and enjoy!
What are pancakes without the toppings? I recommend adding fruit, a little maple syrup, peanut butter, or anything else that sounds good to you.
- For eggs: You can substitute one “flax egg” per egg in this recipe. To make a flax egg, combine 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed with 3 tablespoons of water and let sit for 5 minutes.
- For chocolate protein powder: You can substitute vanilla or unflavoured protein powder, although the chocolate flavour of the pancakes may not be as rich.
- For almond milk: You can use whatever milk you prefer.
